One of the things that makes me feel super productive is when I bring my own lunch to work. Weird, I know, but it’s a huge benefit. Mainly, because it’s cheaper and healthier than going through one of the many drive-thru spots around my office building.

Sure, I could use my little struggle platform to share my political opinion, but I would rather not. If you want a little insight into my my opinions, you should follow me on Twitter. FYI, on Twitter, I’m sarcastically funny, love responding with GIFs, and RTs are my jam.
