Weekly Recap

What a week. This summer has been a little bit of a struggle. It's been really hard to find a routine, and my internship has been a little less intense than I thought it would be. I tend to spend a lot of my days re-watching Gossip Girl while on my computer. Here's what I found interesting this week:


Chipotle Is Worse Than McDonald's // I've never been one to really care about these fast food articles because I don't eat at fast food restaurants all that often. Supersized didn't really bother me (and turned out to be fake anyway), but this study did make me a little upset! AND it was funded by my own university! Personally, I feel betrayed, but I will most likely continue to eat my chicken burrito bowls like nothing has changed.

Grace VanderWaal // Y'all. This girl. She's amazing. She's definitely something special. And the fact that she's 12 years old?! I certainly feel unaccomplished now. If you haven't watched this... Now is the time. You'll only be hearing more about her, start now so you won't have to catch up later!

Depression Is Real // This blog post from Olivia Caridi hits home. She wrote about her post-Bachelor depression on her blog and it was really insightful and well-written. Even though I was unsure about her during the show, I've really enjoyed watching her after the show! She has turned into an even more positive and confident women. Not to mention, her demo reel is serious goals! (My broadcast friends and I talk about it all the time haha!)

56 Priceless Chad Quotes from This Season of The Bachelorette // It's no secret that I love The Bachelor/Bachelorette. (You can read my recaps here.) Chad was this season's villain... for good reason. He is scary. I don't know if he's actually insane or if the producers manipulated him... but my money is on the former. Jojo even admitted that watching him this season has been scary. Spoiler alert: he was sent home on Wednesday night, and was very upset. Who knows when he'll really be gone for good, but for now: the 56 best Chad quotes.

How to Travel Alone // I love Vogue for it's fashion (the Met Gala is an event that I track religiously every year), but I love how it's becoming more versatile. I love this article on traveling alone! When I studied abroad, I spent our 2 week long spring vacation traveling by myself. I went from Austria to Zagreb, Croatia, then to Athens, Greece, up to Lake Como and Milan, Italy and then back home. I had a blast. Traveling alone is the best way to really get in touch with yourself. It's definitely not as scary as people think it is!

  2. I totally agree that it can be hard to find a schedule for the summer. That's kind of upsetting about Chipotle, but not upsetting enough to stop eating there lol.

  3. I am going to read that Chipotle/McDonald's article now -- I'm so intrigued! We don't have Chipotle in Hawaii and I don't eat McDonald's so I guess I'm safe, but I'm still shocked!

  5. I'm not surprised honestly about Chiptole being just as bad or worse than McDonalds. Watching them pile all of the food on there, it all adds up quick.

  7. I absolutely love those Chad quotes, I can't help but laugh and picture his smug face!! Also I didn't know Olivia had a blog, I just read her depression post and definitely feel for her. I understand that she was kinda crazy on The Bachelor, but it's reality television, and people shouldn't make her out to be this vicious person. It's so upsetting to see all these negative people telling her that she should end her life for how she was portrayed on TV. Thanks for the great post!
