No Food, Just Thoughts #14

2018 was the fastest year yet. Between studying abroad, one of the most exciting summers yet, and the start to my senior year, there were many milestones that included countless highs and lows. In terms of mental health, 2018 involved overcoming unexpected challenges and making progress each day. I’m particularly grateful for my mental health […]
