I’ve still been dealing a lot with my depression. On the whole it’s been much better but there are moments when it creeps back in. Going to therapy is possibly the best thing I could have done, though. Things are heading up from here. I have an apartment with decent roommates. I could even say I really like Brittainy. It’s important to me right now to have a space that is in my...
Roleplaying as Art
I became a tabletop roleplayer about a year ago. I fell into it because I love acting and can slip into the role of a character quite easily. I make them live and breathe, give them motivations and convictions. Some of them are outgoing and talkative, others are quiet and introverted. They are mostly all female, I can express a great breadth of emotion and personality but find it hard to act as a...
Real Ale Brewery Tour
Last Friday I took a tour of the Real Ale Brewery with Brandon and some friends. We got to sample all of the new beers to the market including the Real Heavy Scotch Ale and the Extra Special Bitter, which is my new favorite. It’s amazing how different the ubiquitous Fireman’s 4 tasted on tap. It was creamy and smooth with a note of wheat that was unfamiliar in comparison with my...
Let food be thy medicine
I’ve often thought of this quote. First when I became a vegetarian and secondly when I chose nutrition as my major and my passion. I love food as a science, an art and as a real world experience that everyone can share in. How many people have you met that don’t eat? Well, if you did they won’t be around for very long. Everyone has to eat in order to sustain themselves with...
Of wants and needs
I’ve been thinking lately. I’ve been eating better but I’m still not ready to relinquish the thinness that I was obsessed with. I want to be thin and lithe but also strong and flexible. I want to be capable of anything and just as beautiful. A person needs so many vitamins and minerals in their diet and you just can’t get that from two meals a day. I feel too full when I...
Here's a gold star
Brandon went off to the store earlier to pick up some yummy food for himself. He told me that one of the employees at our local grocery store that we talk to seems to be very upset and troubled. I sent him off with a few dollars to buy her a candy bar from me. He’s bringing her a bracelet that he made. I hope that the kind act will cheer her up. She seems to have been really depressed...
So young lady, you've got an eating disorder.
Well yeah. I do, at that. It’s been really hard to stay on a good path of eating without eating too little or too much. I became very used to starving and then binging only to start the cycle over again. Unfortunately, this has made it very hard for me to create an ordered eating pattern. I still find myself having image issues. It’s been easier for me to look at myself more...
I’m turning this blog open. This is my personal blog and I’m going to try and use it when I can to discuss things that need discussing and for putting things up that I like. Here goes nothing. It was a rainy, foggy day and there was one girl hurrying along the sidewalk. Her hair was matted down and dripping. Little droplets of water rolled down onto her cheeks and nose before...
