“Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things only mean Beauty.” - Oscar Wilde

Here’s to a week for the unconventional before and after photos, National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. For most of my life, I’ve been heavier, and consequently shamed and belittled for my weight.  When I started college, however, I weighed 103 pounds, was eating 400-600 calories a day, doing about 90 minutes of cardio daily, and most importantly, I was anorexic. I was 15 pounds underweight, but no one thought to say anything because they were too busy applauding me for my unnatural weight loss. This is me calling them out. This is my telling them they were wrong. This is me thanking my real life and tumblr friends for everything they have done to get me to the wonderful place I am today. So fuck you traditional pictures of “healthy”, I may be fat, but I beat my eating disorder.

morning view, san francisco, chinatown, 857 clay street, flat 412see that window? the one on the top floor w/ the half-open curtain? the first night i moved in, i saw two little heads poking through the curtain; they must have been curious who the new girl in town was. to show that i came in peace, i grabbed one of my teddy bears, placed him by my window and let him sit there for a few days. every couple of days since, i’ve been replacing each stuffed animal with another stuffed animal for them to giggle at. paco the bear, danger the moose, or yoda.  actually, around 7 or 8 o’clock, you’ll even start to see two little heads peeking through the curtain when i come home and my light turns on. a lot of people have been asking me how san francisco has been. i’d rather just share this story.

this is so lovely oh my
