Then I was watching my dog after his breakfast today. We always have to be super vigilant right after he eats because he ... Read more

  • Tuesday: Bought a scale a month ago and have shocked myself (also the best ramen ever!)

    6/5/2018 1:01:25 PM, by OTEMPURA

    I told myself I wouldn't buy a scale because of my unhealthy relationship with it, but I broke down and bought one.

    I changed jobs this month. It's been almost 2 weeks at my new job and I can feel the stress draining from my mind and my body.
