TOP TEN TUESDAY: I'm Excited!
Check it out guys, I’m back! And guess what I did today? Well, it was really similar to yesterday. I slept in, was productive through the afternoon, and then went out to the mall and to the works for a second night in a row with
my sister and our longtime best friend from dance! Months ago, going to the same restaurant two nights in a row would freak me out, or, should I say, my eating disorder. I had a bit of unease, but nothing compared to what it used to be.
Today I’m doing my current “Top Ten,” a little snippet of what I’m into lately.
Food. Lately, I’ve been eating a loooot of oatmeal. I think maybe my body is carb deprived. I’ve been focusing a lot on listening to its needs, and that has led me to eat about 80% carbs lately. The body is brilliant and my eating disorder is not!
Music. Have you guys heard of Halsey? My little sister is OBSESSED with her, and lately I’ve been loving her sound, too. My favourite song is here http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xKnG2d9tZdU.
Clothing. A few weeks ago I bought a cute Hollister sweater on clearance. I haven’t even worn it yet, and I usually hate clothes with the brand name but for some reason this one is almost hipster and I love it.
Word. This will probably be the only time I use this category because I don’t think my favourite word will ever change. It is wholesome. My dear friend Daniella and I always experience these moments of wondrous joy that almost brings tears to your eyes, this euphoria and feeling that you are living in the greatest, most wonderful moment possible with the best person possible (that is her). Have you ever felt this? Yeah, well it’s called wholesomeness.
Book. My friend Ryan lent me a classic called The Sun Also Rises, by Ernest Hemingway. It is brilliant. Seriously, you must read this book if you called yourself a literature junkie (I’m very biased about my opinions on books).
Make-Up. I have never been into make-up, though I have two beautiful friends, Chloe and Haylie, who are brilliant at it. But I went on a mission to find a mascara that wouldn’t make my lashes stick together and I succeeded!
TV Show. I finally jumped on the OITNB bandwagon and I’m already obsessed. I just finished season one, and I looove Lorna.
Quote. I don’t know who wrote this, but I saw it the other day and it really resonated with me. “Hate is a disease; love is a healthy condition.”
Mood. Lately, I’ve just been overwhelmingly… excited! Not by anything in particular, but by my life. By the beauty of it. While I have painful days, there are always bright spots; in the people I love, in the things I do, in what I choose to invest my time in. I’ve been seeingeach new day as an adventure, an impossible viewpoint to have without recovery.
Addiction. Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. If you cut me open, venti sugar free caramel dark roasts from Starbucks would pour out.
Do you watch OITNB? Who’s your favourite character?
