While studying Urban Sustainability at the University of the District of Columbia, we took an online quiz to check our ecological footprint was. The way it calculates is how many Earths you need if everyone lived the same lifestyle as you do. My results showed that if everyone had my lifestyle, 1.75 Earth would be required to sustain our current population. That's impossible, and I decided to make lifestyle changes to do more for our environment. The catch was, I still live at home, so just me changing my lifestyle wouldn't be as beneficial as my household adapting and evolving.
In the summer of 2017, I decided to go overseas to play lacrosse in the UK. My college coach at UDC had brought it up that she had coached with this program a summer or two ago, and it was a lifetime experience. I thought, oh shit, I should explore and travel outside of the states and play the sport I love. The only thing for me was, jeez, the price, but I’ll try to make it and pay for it to have a trip of a lifetime.
I'm writing this story for those who can relate or are thinking about being in a long-distance relationship with someone you consider your one. Not only telling you how it is being in a long term relationship but being with a partner that is in the Navy and that you've been together for a long time.
If some of you haven’t you’ve already read my first few posts, I’m in a long-distance relationship with my boyfriend who is in the Navy. This past December of 2020, I was going to go visit him. I had ordered my flight a couple of months before Japan had its travel restrictions. But the airline hadn’t update me about it. Not only that my flight was changed multiple times and Hopper (worse app to use like ever!) I couldn’t get in touch with them to change anything. So I hand to contact the airline.
