I’m going through a quarter-life-crisis and that’s okay. And no, I’m not crazy- it’s a sociological thing. 20-something seniors, graduates, and beyond trend towards this common dilemma of “what on Earth am I doing with my life” moment and some change, some don’t. Sure enough, I’ve recognized my crisis-crazed state for a good long time now but am only finally coming to this conclusion: it’s okay to change it up- it’s okay to succumb to […]
Hello Lovelies, Today I caught myself thinking the most DANGEROUS unhealthy thought and I thought that I’d give it a share.

I think my food issues started in the seventh grade when a bunch of gal pals had a gal fight and cut me out of the group for not taking sides- not that I’m blaming them (at all!), that incident caused me to turn to food to cope.
