What I Ate on the Holidays: Balanced Meals + Foodie Favorites

Not all bloggers are on top of their posting game. For me, I will NOT establish a resolution to post more, because that’s just not going to happen. I’m currently bombarding my time with job and internship hunting, which entails placing my blog and social media closer to the rear end of the priority bus. The stress truly takes a toll on your mental and emotional well-being, thus it’s best not to burden my creative outlet with my nervous wreck self. On the other hand, it is very therapeutic to purge my distress in certain aspects of life, so I may or may not reconsider this in the future, but for now, nothing more.

Back to the documentation of my food:
