A woman handling the internal struggle to maintain and patriarchal norm of low body fat and pretending to find the banana and cupcake equal in taste.

This one’s for all us NARPs (non-athletic regular persons) out there. The KAC recently got Bubble Tea, which means I feel the need to justify my walk down there by actually exercising. This wouldn’t be so bad if I wasn’t so terrified of the gym.
