Dear Diary

New Weekly Rituals

It’s funny how much everything can change in such a short amount of time. It’s so easy to get sucked into a routine, a step-by-step blueprint for the way each day plays out that at times feels impossible to overcome even if it’s not making you all that happy.

I worked a 9-5 for nearly a year, and though I learned a lot, in retrospect I am not the type of person who should ever be working in an office like that. I dreaded getting up in the morning, let the things that mattered to me most slip, and some days I was so miserable and awful to be around that I barely recognized myself anymore. In the end, my only sanctuary was my lunch break each day.

I know everyone says this, but I really truly love food, and in the final weeks of my office job nothing seemed to matter quite as much as what I’d eat when noon rolled around. I started using Ritual as a way to peruse the local options while I was waiting for my break, and to maximize the spare time I had when I was able to leave for lunch. From indulgences at Little Nicky’s and Burger’s Priest to healthy bowls at Fresh, Ritual served as a sort of life raft in my day, and honestly it gave me something to look forward to. Whether I was using it to pre-order a coffee on the trip in, or for an afternoon snack, this app really helped me get through, and I daresay it’s one of my favourite app discoveries ever.
