Week In Review 6.19.16 – 6.25.16
Last week was weird since I wasn’t scheduled that many hours at work, which is due partly to that fact that I requested Thursday and Friday off. But still. It was nice. I mean, it’s sad knowing that my paycheck is going to be a bit smaller than what it has been lately, but honestly I was happy to discover that I wouldn’t be
slaving away working as much so I could dedicate my time to other things. Like sleep and get writer’s block apparently.
I also got to hang out with my roommate from college on Monday, and I was so glad to catch up with her (we talked for like three hours straight). We are roommate goals. We are roommate goals and we aren’t even roommates anymore. We met up at the mall which was an awful idea since we are both basically poor, but I somehow didn’t spend any money there. Which is awesome yet heartbreaking.
In a ~ shocking ~ turn of events, I actually did enough somewhat interesting stuff lately where I’m going to write a whole blog post dedicated to covering what I did this weekend. I mostly want to show all the pictures I took Snapchat-style. But that post should be published tomorrow because I know you care.

3 Tips For Finding Freedom Orthorexia via Maddy Moon
I was never formally diagnosed with orthorexia, but I definitely dealt with characteristics of it when I was deeply struggling with my eating disorder. Favorite quote: “Also it’s important to note that mental health is an important part of overall health. I think we can all agree that being terrified of eating a brownie, having to carry food with you everywhere, and experiencing severe anxiety over eating out is not mentally healthy.”
