I just bought my very first car, a 2008 Prius. I knew I wanted a hybrid, so I researched and found that the Prius was the best hybrid there is. Because they’re in such high demand, I had to wait about a week after I bought mine to actually receive it. I didn’t get it quite the way I wanted [red, with dark interior] buuuut I love it nonetheless. It’s fast, quiet, and roomy. I can’t wait to take it out on a road trip!

How I did it: I'm making a difference in the environment by buying eco-friendly products that I know I will use for a long time such as a Prius and a Lenovo laptop. I want to reduce my carbon footprint by changing my lifestyle and everyday habits; little things like using towels instead of paper towels, unplugging appliances that aren't in use, or signing petitions.

How I did it: My boyfriend and I were driving to his house in the rain and I told him to pull over at a park so we could kiss in the rain because I had always wanted to and so had he. It was really cute and gives me all sorts of tingles to think about it, because it was only drizzling, but the fact that we had to pull over just so we could kiss in the rain is kind of silly [in a good way].

How I did it: I stuck to my beliefs, and I didn't settle. I think that saying is true, that you'll have your fair share of frogs before you meet your prince, but don't be discouraged! Read how I did it…
Went to the three countries above on an EF Tour. It was absolutely amazing witnessing the different cultures first hand, but I found the experience extremely humbling as well. There was this one time in France when we went up Montmartre and saw a mix of locals and tourists hanging out at the steps of Sacre Coeur, laughing and singing. Seeing the locals (not just the touristy stuff) became one of the best experience I had in Europe, and I’ll definitely be coming back in the future.
what with earth day approaching, I’ve signed up for 3 events that would help with the environment. Not sure if it counts as “community” service, but I think since the environment benefits the community, it does count.
Anyway, so far, so good. Woke up early and picked up trash at Lake Mead, which I have to say is an amazing way to start your day! Not only are you doing something good for others, you’re getting exercise and helping yourself too!
