Alright, so throughout these past few months I have graduated from college, moved back home, and am packing up to move to a new place for a new job. With these transitions, life has been crazy stressful and I needed an outlet. At first, I went back to drinking and eating terrible food because of graduation and wanting to party with my friends.
