2016

Greg and I met in college, and it was love at first sight. Just kidding. Greg approached me in the library and asked me if I thought zombies were real. Needless to say, I thought he was weird. Luckily, the University was holding a film festival and Greg asked me if I wanted to enter it with him. I said yes, and a beautiful relationship began.

Fast forward a year and we were starting Sophomore year together. We shared one class, and I always got frustrated that Greg wouldn’t start his projects until the night before, while I’d have them done weeks before they were due. This is when we first started to realized that our strengths were opposite in almost every way, and began working on school assignments things together. This was also the year that Greg was featured on ESPN, and won an NCAA national wrestling championship, an All American award, and the Outstanding Wrestler of the Year award in the same day. It was a proud moment.

During our Junior year, Greg began to pursue different business ventures and chose to continue his education online instead of at our University. He moved back to Texas and taught himself how to code and perfect digital design (I know, he’s a genius), and in Wisconsin I got hired by Apple Retail and decided to triple major. We were both pretty busy for a while.

Working at Apple inspired me to get a jump start on my career, so I decided to take overload credits so I could graduate a semester early. Greg and I maintained a long distance relationship for about a year and a half while I finished school, and Greg helped from afar by sending me giant surprise boxes of black tea so I could stay up to write all my papers and Senior projects in time. Greg flew to Wisconsin in December of 2014 for my graduation ceremony and was there to celebrate with me as we closed the “college” chapter of our lives. Another proud moment. A few months and vacations later, I accepted a job with Apple in Silicon Valley, California.

Greg packed up the Texas house and drove a huge moving van across the country in 24 hours. I took a flight from Wisconsin and arrived much less sleepy and very grateful to have a boyfriend who loves driving. We moved into a nice apartment in a nice area with a good-paying job and fell in love with northern California.

California is amazing, and was a place where we both felt ‘home’. However, my new job required me to be in an office ten hours per day, six days a week. It took a toll on my happiness, our relationship, and my health. We knew that I could apply for other jobs, but both felt that we were being pulled to travel.

So, in December of 2015, we packed everything up again, broke our apartment lease, bought every gregandsara domain available, and began our world travels. It hasn’t always been easy and there are new challenges every day, but we both agree that it’s the best thing we’ve ever done.
