MY LATEST MUSINGS
i started @olive.eeeats in bed at 1am almost a year after graduating college. i was fresh off of heartbreak, had just become a yoga teacher, and was learning that eating clean made me feel GOOD. i was embarrassed to start an instagram account, so i used the pseudonym of Olive. literally - and i mean literally - no one in my life has EVER called me that. once the account started to grow, i kind of felt like a fraud, lol.
for 9 months, from may 2016- February 2017, I posted food creations. I had gained about 10k followers and “influencing” was not a thing. I did it because I had fun. but overtime, I adopted some disordered eating habits (mainly orthorexic) and once graduate school began, I was unable to keep up with the demand of the account,
