The Internet is no stranger to bizarre yearlong challenges — remember that guy who watched Julie and Julia every day for a year? Well, a woman in Seattle named Beautiful Existence (yup) just completed a challenge of her own by consuming nothing but Starbucks products for an entire year.
“I did it!” the 40-year-old mother of two wrote on her blog, where she’s been documenting the dining experience. And it wasn’t just difficult — it was also rather pricey. She said she spent between $500 and $600 a month on the coffee, pastries, packaged sandwiches and other Starbucks fare.
Now, if you’re anything like us, you’re now asking yourself, Why? Why did Beautiful Existence do this?
“WHY? am I doing this challenge? Or WHY? will I do any challenge in the future? Because I LOVE being human and I LOVE the privilege of being able to ask the question WHY? in the first place!” she wrote on her blog. If that’s not enough of a concrete reason for you, then we guess that’s just too bad.
Now that it’s all over, Existence is proud of her accomplishment — but seems pretty relieved.
“In the last month, in the last couple weeks, it’s been really difficult,” Existence told the New York Daily News. “People had pizza at the office last week and I was dying. I’m happy to be able to eat whatever I want (again).”
