[slide projector cliing] doug: for half a hundred years or so, we watched the ice of sperry go from the stairway carved in the mountain wall to the place where bearhat watches all the waters of the ages fall, like teardrops down the face of time, where grizzlies roam and white goats climb to avalanche and the lakes below, where the trail begins and the waters flow to columbia and their destiny, home at last in the quiet sea.

3:08 am
could me it-- we could make a change. doug: anythi you do is better than nothing. jen: yeah. thinking about a future where things will be changing, and maybe what we need to hear is some of the stories and the philosophy that doug has and has always professed about nature and protecting it.

3:17 am
woman: hi, naomi. woman 2: hi, naomi. naomi: how are you guys? woman: good. wait. so much louder. naomi: so, i want to hear about the story of how coronavirus affected your relationship. sydney: i sneezed on zoom, and she said "bless you" on the zoom dms, and then we started joking around. vivian: we kept talking for, like, months
3:18 am
and months and months. and i made her a powerpoint, and i, like, sang to her and asked her to be my girlfriend. sydney: and she was like, "reasons why you should be my girlfriend," and that was about,ike, two weeks after met on zoom. vivian: and that's kind of how it happened. [singing on video, indisnct] ♪ there is no one there to dry your tears... ♪ it didn't feel like i was missing all that much, or, like, that much shifted when we, like, finally met in person because we had already established a really, like, caring relationship just over talking. i'm, like, mexican. i'm gay. i think, like, there's a lot of time where i get the sense that i need to, like, perform really well academically or socially for people to, like, accept me. and with sydney, like, i feel like i can just be myself whenever. i think she just, like, accepts me wholeheartedl and i've never, like, met anyone who makes me feel that way. sydney: i love you so much, vivian. i'm so excited to be with you,
3:19 am
and i can't wait until you're here. and i don't know. she spends a lot of time with me, so i'm very thankful that, like, you choose to spend your time in that way because it means a lot to me. yeah. [laughs] julian: so literally, it's one thing to visit your significant other's parents' house. it's another to, like, half move in. izzyi did not know them very well before at all. i, like, visited, like, once, right, before. and so then i, like, walk in. i'm like, "hi." so, it's his mom, his dad, his sister, his brother, julian, d then mand then the dog. and so it was just, like, i felt b for, like, adding anothererson to this, like, house that during just the most stresul time. if you are in a relationship and everything takes place within a home and you're, like, need to stay in the same bubble and do everything together, it's just like you are, like, living a different kind of life
3:20 am
together. because everything's more together, i feel like it does make it more mature for sure. like, you age, like, 20 years. julian: i have never felt butterflies like i've felt for you. izzy: aw! that's so sweet. julian: really. izzy: i love you very much. [izzy chuckles] jack: my parents' reaction? oh, kind of brought it up slowly. i was like, "what i left the cotry?" and they were like, ack, you have to be kidding. there's no way you could be leaving the country in the middle of a pandemic." and i show them the plane ticket, and i'm like-- and they're like, "jack, you are not getting on that plane." and then i'm just like, "and what if i booked an apartment, and what if christy got a plane ticket as well?" and then they're like, "no, not happening, not happening." and so they didn't really accept it until the day they were driving me to the airport. nomany places will take a chinese citizen and a u.s. citizen at the same time. so dubai was, like, just kind of the best option for us. at the beginning of our trip, we
3:21 am
hawedding ngs because it's illegal-- it was illegal in dubai for unmarried coles to live together, but then they changed the law. justor us, i think, actually. here's one of r wedding rings fr when we were marrie but we have since become boyfriend and girlfend without the process of a divorce... [christy lauing] christy: he requires a lot of "me" time. he doesn't want me to stay wit him, like,4 hours. he will go to a different room and watch, like, "star trek." jack: ok... christy: i was le, "can yo come her" he like, "nochristy, it's mtime. sorry. me time." jack: ok, literally, like, one hour in, like, a 72-hour period. christ it's literally long. i just feel li we care aut each other more, like, in a deeper level because, like, course, lik living together, like, who's gonna, like, cook? what if, like, you feel sick? who's going to take care of each other? and just,ike, all the small stuff and details, i feel like--it feels like
3:22 am
we'r like, married in some ways. jack: oh, does it? christy: yes. jess: we've been dating since high school? amine: maybe, like, six years now? jess: yeah. it's 6 years. heh. everyone is always asking, "what's your next move," right? like, "what are you doing after graduation?" like, "what are you doing with your life? what's the plan?" what are you doing? da da da. i think the pandemic has allowed us to say, "i don't know," and that be an acceptable answer. amine: that is very true. jess: and i think in the sense of our relationship too, like, before, it's like, what's going to happen? like, you know, what's your future? what are you doing? where are you moving? and now, it's like, "i just don't kn," and that's ok. and i'm just with someone that makes me happy and that i love, and that's all i need right now. i don't think that means there's less or more seriousness. it's just shifts the perspective of how we're looking at our relationship. amine: i think the pandemic maybe just gives more-- it steers the changes in
3:23 am
different ways. i think, in relationships, you always need to change together. jess: yeah. amine: and, like, whether you change together or apart, you know, life is about change. jess: i've always kind of loved my support system and, like, love my friends and familynd amine. and i feel like the pandemic heightened those relationships, and you, like, really saw explicitly how powerful having those people just there for you, not physically, but just there for you. they're thinking about you. they're calling on you. to me, it just strengthened my idea of what relationships mean, i guess. i don't know if that makes sense. amine: no, for sure. ellie: i think when all of that went down, i was thinking like, "ok, we have a silver lining. like, i'll get to spend all this time with ella. like, that'll be great." like, if everything else is falling apart, at least i'll get that. but then parentals were like, "psych. no.
3:24 am
you arnot allotoee each other." ella: we had been hanging out in person, just, like, wearing masks and stuff. ellie: yeah, like, staying 6 feet apart, which was, like, so hard. ella: yeah. ellie: like, that's just a completely different way of interacting with this kind of relationship, if you have to, like, not touch and, like, stay really far apart. ella: ellie's really, like, cute. she's, like, a really good writer. and like, so, you know, she's, like, emailing me poems. at the end of the summer when we were, like, both emo that you were leaving, she like, mailed me--even though we are, like, in the same place, she mailed me these little--they were, like, comic strips of, like, the summer, like, different things that we did that were really, really cute. and i feel like you're good at things like that, just, like, taking time out of your day to, like, i don't know, pick flowers off the street and, like, press them and se them to me. when your lationship transfers to, like, cetime or something, you spend l your time talking. it's a very intimate way to get to know someone, which was surprising to me, because i feel like i associate intimacy with,
3:25 am
like, being togeth and bei in the same place. but one year together and in the same place, you can kind odo your own thing and, like, still spend time together. but one year not in the same place and you're spending time together, like, you're just talking. ellie: it's like, really concentted. ella: yeah. we are gonna kind of break up when we go back to school. you know, when you're with somee when you graduate, like, often people are, like, moving in together, like, moving to the same city, and, like, applying for jobs in the same place. and, like, i know that, like, speaking for me--and i think it's the same for you--like, no person would be great enough and, like, no love would be grt enough at this point in my life for me to really be willing to do that. i just don't think that-- my personal growth is there. if it hadn't been for the pandemic and, like, the pandemic would not have-- i wouldn't have experienced the pandemic the way i did, if i didn't spend every second with you, which i did. and i think that every time i look back on this relationship, it's going to be both a lot of joy and a lot of, like, sadness
3:26 am
just because of, like, how the world is. it's all bittersweet. but i also feel like, honestly, almost all memories in life are like that. and, like, good things are almost always bittersweet in retrospect because like, they're not happening anymore, you know? jess: we have been through a pandemic, you know. that's not something any of us is going to forget. izzy: this is how love feels like to me. whee! ha ha! ellie: if we find our way back to each other again, then we will. go, team ella: ok.
3:27 am
