A year on Instagram: Where money goes

Sabrina didn’t block Kathryn (or Ebony) on Instagram until 12 hours after she said her therapist told her to stay off social media.

In that time Kathryn took Instagram screenshots to compile a quick list of Sabrina’s travels and spending over one year. Do remember, she’s claiming to still be a student and to work at Fred Hutch during this time.

Kathryn here: I resisted just stealing Sabrina’s/Realafterglow’s Instagram photos for this.  I did have my own photos. I saw her a great deal while she was occasionally attending cram school in Tokyo.

Here we are at Disneyland. We did all the walking and rides together. I had no idea how scary and focused she’d be about Disneyland less than a year later.
