one day at a time
Searching for good health.
Weight doesn't matter to me.
Happiness will come.

About me: Twenty-two years old, 5 foot 11, Californian, former athlete who got lazy once I quit sports to focus on academia. Anti-human trafficking activist, working for a better world. Mental health is the most important to me now, and then fitness will follow. Looking for peace with my body and overall happiness, not a number on the scale. Love to cook, bake, read, write, live, and well... myself. Working on that part, but it's been a good few months.

I'd call it a "recovery" blog focusing on depression and anxiety disorders, but you all can deduce what you think it really is.

Wish me luck!

The average salary of a tech industry worker in the Silicon Valley is 196k or as I like to say HELLA.

And yeah I get that it’s an average and oh my gosh there are so many outliers cause it’s the friggin Silicon Valley but I sent the link of that article to Jake with, “you know I love you right?” attached and he lost his shit from laughing and that’s what love is, folks.

halftheskymovement:

A feminist group based in Guangzhou, China staged an online protest against the sexual exploitation of women in the workplace, revealing a photograph with a message boldly written in red on a whiteboard behind them: “My vagina does not come free with my labor.” More words were written on the women’s thighs, reiterating: “Not freebies.” 
The campaign was in response to a recent fatal rape case involving a 20-year-old woman at a state-owned company who was asked by her boss to a dinner. She was sexually assaulted by her boss’s friend and died as a result of her injuries.“Don’t ask your staff to provide part-time escort services. Women should only be asked to provide knowledge or technical skills in the workplace, but not other things,” says Ye Haiyan, an advocate of women’s and children’s rights.

"Alexithymia"  -

n. The inability to verbalize your emotions or lack of emotional response. Difficulty in experiencing, expressing, and describing emotion. A failure to express feelings either verbally or non-verbally, especially when talking about issues that would normally require an emotional response. Poor modulation of feelings, significantly reduced intensity in emotional expression. 

So basically fangirling.

My mom and I have been talking about “titties” recently 

Mainly about how people are getting in trouble for breastfeeding in public and how she never was shamed for it when me and my sisters were babies. We keep seeing this on the news and we’re just like, “Everybody wants to see a titty until the titty is used for it’s sole purpose.”

But it’s crazy how she’s just like, yeah in the early nineties nobody ever said anything about it to me. I had some people give me weird looks with you but that was cause it was a religious town but this is just ridiculous.

The baby needs to eat. What’s wrong with that?

Once- The Musical was amazing. It had me sobbing the whole last 20 minutes.

They had this wall that people attached cards to and these are the ones I added but some were amazingly funny, inspiring, and hopeful.

Love of any kind is amazing
