    Luckily, most of my day-to-day transportation involves walking around campus, but I also go into places like Davis and Boston pretty frequently. When I go, I try to walk (if it's close) or take the T instead of ubering with friends.

    Up-cycling and participating in clothing swaps are two things I'd like to do more of. When I was a kid I loved remaking clothes into something new, such as cutting shirts and making accessories out of old socks. Recently I've been embroidering clothes I've gotten bored of to re-excite myself into wearing them and I think that this is a creative...
