The Realization

  13. “Fitspiration? More like I hate you and your photoshopped abs.”
  14. The only reason celebrities are skinny is because they have personal trainers.

(yeahokaywhat) Aspiring to be the next Tina Fey, Rachel spends her free time doing nothing to reach that goal. While judging people based on how they use "they're" vs. "there" on social media, she likes eating buffalo chicken dip, watching other people's Netflix, and wearing sweatpants way more than is socially acceptable.
