right now, i'm writing an essay about commuting. i think the fact that i'm tired and lacking in motivation is what led me to write the following:
"In addition, taking the train makes me feel like I am helping the environment. If the environment were a person, and I could meet this person, I am pretty sure that the environment would like me more for taking the train than the jerks who drive alone to work or school every day."
i might keep it in my paper. since this is only a draft we're turning in.
but i might change "jerks" to "people." it sounds smarter.
