    Spending a majority of the semester using only muscle power around campus and the community was fulfilling for my mind, body, and the environment! This experience has made me realize the joy and ease of taking the time to reach my destinations rather than driving and polluting the earth to get places faster. I have picked up random litter while walking, convinced my friends to lessen their impact by walking around with me, and gotten more in touch with Knoxville as a whole. I will definitely continue to use muscle power beyond this challenge and lessen my carbon emissions.

    All this rain has been (somewhat) discouraging to walk everywhere everyday, however, by walking more and being more aware of my surroundings, I have noticed a lot more trash washing up by the creek and especially in the sewers which has inspired me to look into more recycling initiatives around Knoxville! Also, I have been making my boyfriend and I vegan meals a lot more often. I am already vegetarian, but working towards a fully plant-based diet with someone else makes it so much easier and enjoyable!

    This weekend I had a family emergency and had to drive 3 hours back home on Friday. It is a lot harder to not use any sort of motorized transportation where I'm from, as it is more spread out than Knoxville. However, I carpooled the whole weekend and did not have to drive my car after I arrived home! I had to drive back yesterday, but I am excited to continue not using my car for the rest of the 21 day challenge.
  • Reflection Question
    Transport Use Muscle Power
    How do your transportation choices affect your engagement in your community? Does your experience or enjoyment differ while walking, riding transit, biking or driving?

    My transportation choices affect my engagement in the community in that non-machine powered transportation allows me to use more of my time to focus on the community itself rather than the destination. By not driving my car, I have been able to find more excuses to go out and engage with all that the community has to offer.
