I'm a sophomore studying chem/physics, but I also like math, history, and literature, and I blog a lot about political and social issues. I can appreciate art and music from a distance, though I'm not the best at creating them. I never take myself seriously (so you probably shouldn't, either). This is just a repository of the thoughts that float through my head on a daily basis; feel free to ask me anything if you want to know! (:
eerily accurate representation of a lot of politics
I’ve had this account for over 3 years. For 3 years I’ve counted every single calorie I put into my body. I’ve logged every single workout just to see how many more calories I needed to burn to be “satisfied.” I wasn’t allowed to go to sleep until I was sure I worked out enough and didn’t eat too much. I used this app to fuel my eating disorder. I told myself I was being “healthy” and that I was just “watching what I ate” when in reality I was becoming more and more obsessive. The numbers were running through my head all day. I would lay awake at night calculating what I would eat and how much I would workout the next day to ensure a caloric deficit. I let it take over my life. I stopped seeing nutrients and could only see numbers. To this day I know the calorie content of so many foods, most things people don’t even really think about. It’s ingrained into my mind. But I’m also starting to see food as fuel again. I don’t workout so I can eat. Now I eat so I can fuel and power through a workout. I eat to perform. I eat to live. I’m adding foods into my diet that used to leave me crying on the bathroom floor. I’m taking back the control I lost when I got sucked into my eating disorder. Recovery is a process. It’s hard, it’s trying, it’s scary. But it’s possible and it is worth it. #Recovery #eatingdisorder
you kids these days with your rapidly growing concern for the state of the world and your knowledge of important issues at increasingly younger ages despite having been told your opinions don’t matter by the adults who put you in these situations

It was 45 years ago today that man first set foot upon the moon. We salute the incredible spirit and determination of the thousands upon thousands of men and women that contributed to man’s greatest achievement in exploration.
Summer gratin: Slice zucchini and summer squash; toss with olive oil. Spread in baking pan. Season with salt and pepper. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and top with a layer of scamorza (or other good melting cheese) and then a layer of thinly sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle with seasoned bread crumbs (dried bread crumbs, minced garlic, freshly grated parmigiano cheese, finely chopped fresh herbs such as basil, parsley and thyme).
Return to the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until cheese is bubbling and gratin is browned on top.
