I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel all alone.
When in doubt about what to do next, make carrot cake. Even if there are a million things you should be doing, even if you aren’t hungry, even if you promised yourself you wouldn’t make baked goods for a week… make carrot cake.
It’s one of those personal days where I can’t seem to function. The closest I can come to being productive without getting a stomach ache from stress and exhaustion is shredding carrots. I like to test my limits, and I’m mad because I think I found it this quarter. I’ve definitely learned about the idea of quality instead of quantity as I struggle to hold myself to a high personal standard in way too many parts of my life. I want to be super woman and manage it all. Usually, I feel like I can. Right now, I feel like I can’t handle anything, not even feeding myself. (I can’t decide if my stomach hurts, I ate too much, or I’m hungry. Go figure.) Time to keep doing nothing and buy food I don’t want to eat right now from the farmers market
