just trying to figure out where we’re going wrong

In the last, I don’t know, ten years, our society has supposedly made strides when it comes to self acceptance and neutrality about appearance. High-fashion brands pat themselves on the back every time there’s a plus-size model in their show, Instagram influencers are now making money off of BOTH diet culture products and messages ofContinue reading “just trying to figure out where we’re going wrong”

It’s been almost two years now in the bustling big city of Columbia, Missouri and I guess you could say I’m starting to get the hang of things.

Numbers are stupid!

Anywhere you look there’s some kind of number affecting your life. You really couldn’t escape them if you tried.Continue reading “Numbers are stupid!”
