“Healthy Food Just Tastes Better”

Published July 17, 2014 by Maggie Williams

Let’s start this out by saying that McDonald’s is delicious. People can say it’s gross, and it is, but you can’t deny that it is also delicious. Fruit is also delicious. But it’s easy to taste that one is definitely more delicious than the other. Sorry, fruit.

Enter people who love to eat healthy. While that is fantastic, and even my ultimate goal, it can also be annoying when some people try to convince others that fruit tastes better than, say, a crispy chicken snack wrap with ranch. McDonald’s will always taste better than healthy food- that’s why it’s a popular worldwide company and that’s why we have such high obesity rates (not from McDonald’s specifically, but you get the picture).

When people try to convince you that healthy food tastes better, it makes it sound easy to learn healthy eating habits. It makes it sound like it should be so simple to break away from years of bad habits because it “tastes better anyway”. That is not the case and if you can teach yourself to eat healthy in this world full of fast food, candy bars, and Cheetos, you deserve a little recognition for how hard that struggle must be.

No one eats healthy because it “tastes better”. No one. We eat healthy to feel better, to be healthy. And you do have to sacrifice taste sometimes, but that’s the price you have to pay.

That’s enough rant and real talk for the morning. I’m gonna go eat a salad or something.

Everyday Costumes

Published July 16, 2014 by Maggie Williams

I have been super into inspired fashion lately. I love Halloween so much, but I never get to dress up because I never go anywhere because I am obviously a winner. So might as well buy combinations of everyday clothes that are inspired by Disney princesses or Game of Thrones ladies, right?

I have a list of ideas for inspired outfits for Ariel, Belle, Cersei, Sansa, Danaerys, and Brienne. I’m hoping to do a lot of thrifting to complete these goals, but I know that there are some things I will need to get outside of thrift stores.

I began my fashion goals tonight by buying relatively cheap jewelry on Amazon. I got a gold lion necklace (Cersei), silver wolf necklace (Sansa), and dragon ring (Dany) for under $15, and that includes shipping. I’d call that a success. I can only hope everything else is that inexpensive…

Hop on the Career Choo-Choo

Published July 15, 2014 by Maggie Williams

Having a job is insane. I make sandwiches for a few hours a day and then I get money at the end of the week. What is this sorcery?!

I think that having a job has been good for me, though. It has definitely taught me some things. I can feel myself learning to smalltalk. I can be pleasant even when I’m not feeling like I particularly want to be. It’s taught me that real world stuff might not be as scary as I thought it would be.

Most importantly, though, it’s taught me to never stop chasing my dreams. This job is okay for now, but after working there for a month, I know that I couldn’t be happy doing it, or anything like it, for the rest of my life. This is definitely just a stop on my career journey. Hopefully one day, I’ll get to remain in the station that houses all the novel writers and/or bloggers.

Curse You, YouTube, and Your Cute Fashion Videos

Published July 14, 2014 by Maggie Williams

It is that time of summer where I become obsessed with watching clothing, hair, and makeup videos on YouTube and promise myself that I’m going to actually try to look cute most days during the school year. I have a list of clothing and accessories that I want to complete this goal because fashion.

However, the difference is that this summer, I have money to buy all these things. I think I’m in trouble. And I will have bought a bunch of things and a week in, decide I’m too lazy for that shit and go for jeans and a t-shirt every day. Oh, what a cycle. Wish me luck.

Montage of Words

Published July 12, 2014 by Maggie Williams

My past few days have just been a constant montage of words. Reading and writing have taken up the space of time when I’m not working, sleeping, or watching YouTube videos and if that isn’t life, I don’t know what is.

I like to treat these days like they’re my “humble beginnings”. Everything I do will make me better at what I do, everything is an experience worth having. This summer, I’ve just been so content, so happy to be alive. Here’s hoping that this continues throughout the rest of my life.
