This is a new Netflix Original I heard about from one of my trainer friends who said “Do not watch!!” because it’s about a girl whose jaw gets wired shut, loses 70lbs, and now is suddenly pretty and popular.
It talks about a LOT of different topics which is becoming pretty par for the course with Netflix Originals aimed at teens… which is something I do like.
But its main topic that it discusses — having a healthy relationship with food — was terribly, poorly fleshed out. Continue reading →

Ok, I got my password back 2 months ago and I’m really glad I am back because I miss this kind of thing. And of course, the first thing I do is catch up on whatever I was talking about back in the day.
So…. FFX was my fave game growing up as a kid. I’m a 90’s baby who’s first console was the PS2. When I played it as a kid, it blew my mind. I firmly believe that this is what shaped my religious views and I haven’t looked back. Anyways, the remaster came out a few years ago and I bought to have it and eventually I knew, I’d play through it all again. But I played a lot of Xillia in that time instead. And last year, I spent the summer getting through the Mass Effect trilogy. More than once. I got through most of FFX’s story through the fall and winter but then FFXV came out and y’all know about that…
Wow, I’m not sure if I can really call myself that. But it’s a title I now have. Nearly seven months ago, I let y’all know I was starting a fitness challenge with my friends where I ended up winning a nice sum of $16.31. Yeah, it was really great. And that’s a half-joke because wow, my health was on point throughout September. I won’t lie, I eased up in October going from a 97% healthy diet to a 85%. I refuse to cry about eating a cookie. I don’t find that healthy either. Of course, it depends on what you’re trying to do. If you want to be in a bikini competition, your diet has to be specialised. If you fall into the population that cares about losing weight and thinks ,”while it’d be nice to scuplt and tone, the bottom-line is that number on the scale”, that’s okay too. And yes, you can argue “don’t let weight be a summary statistic of your health. It’s just a number”. That’s right too. I agree with that sentiment a lot. On one hand, it’s hard to accept yourself like that, but on the other, my original sentence was to generalise a large segment of the population without falling into the trap of a logical fallacy.
So, this has been my life for almost a year now. It’s honestly a dream job and I hadn’t considered it one until a former professor told me, “A lot of people would be very happy to have the job you do” and he’s right.
“But you’re not satisfied with just a job. You have to write this book,” he added. He’s right.
