National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden up and left his comfortable life in Hawaii with pole dancer girlfriend Lindsay Mills to shine a light on the U.S. government's Internet wiretap program, leaving her "lost at sea."

Mills, 28, wrote extensively on her feelings about her boyfriend, whom she calls "E," on her blog "L's Journey." Self-described as a "world-traveling, pole-dancing super hero," Mills reportedly lived with Snowden in Hawaii up until May 1, when he told her he would be traveling for a few weeks for a business trip.

In reality, Snowden fled to Hong Kong after blowing the top off PRISM, the NSA's Internet wiretap that worked with Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and other companies to record all of its users' exchanges.

"I'm willing to sacrifice all of that because I can't in good conscience allow the U.S. government to destroy privacy, Internet freedom, and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they're secretly building," Snowden told The Guardian of his decision to expose PRISM.

Mills, a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art who specializes in pole and aerial dancing at the Waikiki Acrobatic Troupe where she has worked over the last year, wrote on her blog about feeling alone.


"Surely there will be villainous pirates, distracting mermaids, and tides of change in this new open water chapter of my journey. But at the moment all I can feel is alone," she wrote Monday in the only post since Snowden leaked the NSA documents. "My world has opened and closed all at once. Leaving me lost at sea without a compass."
