My Dream

A ray of hope!
It is raining. Always raining. The clouds, thick and grey, cover the vast span of the sky, as if divinity wants to cleanse the human soul, to wash away all the impurities that we humans have added to this beautiful world. Drenched, I shivered in the cold as I traversed through the puddles and waterfalls in the streets.

Changing the World

Have you ever wondered how you can contribute to the world? It’s easy! From the Cool Story results of the Cool Davis Festival Survey, we see that the majority of people in Davis believe saving energy can in turn save themselves money and benefit the environment! So why don’t we start changing the world today with a small step forward? Replace incandescent light bulbs with CFLs, turn the thermostat down several degrees, carpool with your colleagues or friends, or try being vegetarian for a day or two per week. All these small actions can make our city greener!

Yes! Yes I know how to be more persuasive after reading Yes!: 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to Be Persuasive. One of the most interesting thing I’ve learned through the book is that people often choose alternatives that are compromise choices, not the high-end or the low-end. Well this all seems pretty obvious, right? What I like about psychology is that some of the concepts the book teaches me seem pretty intuitive, but I never really know them, but I do (this sounds a little bit like an example of hindsight bias but anyways that’s not the point).
