 With a smaller meal plan than the unlimited plan first years use, I was thrown into the challenge of figuring out where to buy groceries

Creating a food Instagram has inspired my housemates and I to eat consistently, and we even find ourselves getting excited to make, plate and snap a picture of our delicious-looking meals.

Typically, I would find myself reading right before bed or during breaks from doing homework.

In 2021, I actively made it an effort to read daily and that meant I could even read for as little as 15 minutes some days.
