i'm alix. i live in minnesota. what up.
i always think of this last year as a such a disappointment- i am more confused than ever about what i want from my life, i didn’t do as well in school as i wanted, and i have way fewer friends and people in my life than when the year began.
but really think of all the things i’ve accomplished! for the most part, the people i don’t see anymore, i don’t see for a reason. those that i do miss, i can reconnect with. i just needed some time to process the last year or so.
i don’t want to say i’m “over” my eating disorder or self esteem issues but i haven’t had a really bad phase in about a year now. i gained weight and realized that i was still loved, and whole, and me! that is a big step. it took a long time to get here. i don’t know if it will stay this way forever but it is progress!
not doing as well in school finally made me realize the need to budget time for myself and sit down for a while. self care is really important. and questioning my plans for the future is good. at least i’m flexible and willing to explore my options instead of staying on one path that might not make me happy in the end.
i have been really…disappointed with my life lately because this has been a big TRANSITION YEAR for me and those are always really hard!!! they can be lonely and frustrating
but really my life is pretty good. the hard things i am dealing with now will pass. life is filled with ups and downs. i just need to take it a day at a time.
i am SO HAPPY
i have a wonderful best friend and a hot boyfriend and a cute new bra that makes me look like lingerie xena and i’m about to spend the remainder of my friday night crafting at my kitchen table and eating popcorn!!
