I’ve learned a lot in college so far, but not necessarily in class.
There’s this app called “Yik Yak” and it’s like an anonymous twitter. On it, I confessed that the best part about college was “kicking anorexia’s ass.” It was the top yak of the hour and had three very encouraging comments. I was so happy. Let it slip how popular my post been to two guys on my floor. They insisted on knowing what it was, so I finally confessed. Both had seen it, and said they were proud of me. You know, I was pretty proud of me, too. It’s still a struggle every day, but I am getting through it, and that is a good thing. One day at a time.
I am getting better, and I am happy. My smile is real, no more fakes.
I don’t quite know what it is that is making me so happy. It could be a new setting. It could be the fact that my sorority is absolutely amazing and filled with wonderful girls I already love. It could be that I have nothing to hide here, that there is nothing to hide from. I have no reason to be anyone other than myself.
And that is fantastically outstanding.
I love the fact that I have already eaten half the loaf of pumpkin bread I got at the pumpkin patch. I love that I can eat all the Ben & Jerry’s I want. I love that I can go get a breakfast burrito until 2 am.And I love that I don’t feel guilty about any of that.
Today is a new day full of new experiences and adventures. I can’t wait to live it. 🙂
Have a wonderful Thursday, my lovelies. ❤
