My mind is such a scary place to be. But I want to fill it with beautiful colors and love. Here is my journey to recovery.

July 2014: In A Nutshell

July 2014: In A Nutshell

Happy Thursday! With July coming to a close, I thought it would be nice to do a summation of my blog in the past 31 days, including aspects of other blogs that I have enjoyed. I am going to dump a lot of photos and talk about some sporadic events. Hope you tag along with me as I retell this past month!

Anonymous asked: at what point would you consider someone as "fully recovered" physically and mentally?


Answer:

girleating:

1) can eat intuitively without restrictions of any kind

2) has had at least 3 consecutive periods

3) is no longer obsessing over food, calories, or numbers

4) has a healthy sense of self and can problem-solve without extreme emotional highs and lows and doesn’t run back to disordered behaviors/thoughts every time something stressful comes up

5) has started focusing on hobbies, passions, and goals

6) is able to socialize freely

7) is content with (not necessarily love) their body and treats it lovingly

I sure there are more additions others can add!

Grilled Cheese Hugs

For some reason, my best writing happens at night, and that very notion just happened to occur Monday night. My brain has just been busting through different ideas, and I am so excited to have this outlet to share my thoughts with whoever is there to listen. So if you are reading, thanks. It is wonderful to know there is someone out there who dedicates a few minutes of their day to acknowledging…

Review: Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter World

Review: Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter World

Milk Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Buttery Swirls & Chocolate Cookie Swirls.20140220-135809.jpg

Peanut butter, chocolate, ice cream, and cookies? Could it get anymore perfect? No, no I do not think so. Well, maybe if you threw a quest bar on top I would not mind it so much. Okay, okay, I realize I am a bit of a freak sometimes. I mean, look at me- taking selfies with my pint. Oh well, I love who I am… I truly do.

Review: Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Fudge Core

Review: Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Fudge Core

It has been a while since I have done one of my Ben & Jerry’s reviews, but I still have been gobbling them up! Ben & Jerry’s are still good to this day, and I have a new favorite that I have been leaning toward recently- Peanut Butter Fudge Core.

I Fight Rape Culture
Lomticks-of-toast.tumblr.com (via slayr)

(Source: lomticks-of-toast, via concreteangel1221)

I fight Rape Culture because
When I told my ex boyfriend about my rape
He ‘forgave’ me.

I fight Rape Culture because
I saw my baby sister age overnight
As she told me about her best friend getting molested.

I fight Rape Culture because
My closest friend was abused as a child
And he told nobody but me.
It took him 13 years to open up.

I fight Rape Culture because
My friends admit to letting their partners fuck them when they don’t want it
Then laugh it off as typical male behaviour.

I fight Rape Culture because
Saying that you’re raping someone is perfectly acceptable
If you’re playing a video game.

I fight Rape Culture because
Men tell me they are insulted when women walking in front of them start to walk faster.
As if their ego is more important than our safety.

I fight Rape Culture because
If I tell somebody their rape joke isn’t funny
I am told that I’m uptight.

I fight Rape Culture because
It won’t die out
Unless we kill it ourselves.

My Favorite Pandora Stations

My Favorite Pandora Stations

Today, I wanted to keep things on the lighter side, by discussing something everyone loves: music! I have never been a fan of keeping my iPod stocked up with songs, partially due to laziness and partially due to wanting to save money, that is why I am thrilled to have Pandora on my phone. It keeps me entertained through every car ride!

Q&A Round Two Pt. 6

Q&A Round Two Pt. 6

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!

proverbs305

“Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who seek refuge in him.” — Proverbs 30:5

Sometimes, a good verse can really hit home for me. This was a nice passage to stumble upon, and it is a good thought to keep in my head as I travel through this day. I figured I would share it!

Anywho, it is time for another Q&A session!

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Why was the baby strawberry sad?

Because its parents were stuck in a JAM!

Okay, now that my dorkiness is out of the way- Happy Saturday! Hope life is going well. I do not have much planned for this weekend, and that is just the way I like it. But, considering I am sharing a recipe today, I have a feeling a lot of food will be in my near future. These chocolate chip pancakes will probably make…

San Diego State Orientation & ROOMIE!

San Diego State Orientation & ROOMIE!

Man, it just feels good to sit down on the couch and be able to relax. I have been go, go, go the past few weeks, and it feels nice to have nothing on the agenda today, except for a few minor chores around the house. That gives me enough to time to write some posts and check up on my favorite blogs!

With a bagel in hand, I am ready for some typing!
