Everything’s Been Perfect

October 25, 2011

Hey Guys! Sorry for my irregular blogging and super-boring topics. Life is still as crazy as always, but I will try to make the time to post a bit more frequently.

In terms of a past ED, things have been alright. I think I’ve gained a bunch of weight, and I now have a layer of fat on my stomach that’s actually grab-able (is that a word? :-)), but I try not to think on it too much. Yes, it does bother me to no end, but I distract myself with my amazing friends, my interesting school work, and my wonderful ballet. Because I don’t allow myself to think about it constantly, I can’t obsess. And get this: last Friday, I ate pizza! 2.5 slices of real, fatty, cheesy pizza. It was the first time in over 2 years, and it felt amazing.

Everything else is wonderful. I LOVE my life. That is no exaggeration – I am the happiest I’ve ever been. I adore school, and I seriously don’t mind waking up at 5:30 every morning to go. My classes are so fascinating!

And I’m not gonna lie, I love when random guys wave at me in the hallways or say “Hey, beautiful!” as I pass them. What can I say? It’s semi-flattering and completely hilarious.

I’ve made so many new friends, and they, along with some of my old friends, are incredible. Aj and I have been talking a little more frequently and I still plan on visiting him for spring break. And guess what else? My friend Jv asked me out, and I definitely said yes. I like him so  much – that child makes me so happy. He was actually the one I ate the pizza with. 🙂

Applebee’s with my friends C and D!

D and I dressed up for mis-match day at school for Spirit Week.



After ballet class with my friend E. 🙂


Me with my sister-friends K and Sh, just foolin’ around!


I got Aj that frog key chain when I went to Puerto Rico back in April. Last week, I asked if he still had it, and turns out he actually uses it for his keys. It made me ecstatic. He connected it to the other key chain, the one with “Aj” engraved on it, which was from D for his birthday. So he’s got both of ours in his pocket at all times! I was so happy, it make me cry!


I was really upset in school one day, and after a Bio lab, I went back to my desk to find this note stuck in my binder. I’d been crying all day, and it was the first thing to put a smile on my face. No one owned up to it at first, but in the end, I did find out who wrote it.


This was me and my boyfriend Jv today, in the school library. This kid never, ever fails to brighten my day and make me smile!!!


So that’s it for now; I’m off to bed, seeing as I have to wake up at 5:30 again. I hope all of you are doing amazingly well, kicking ED’s ass, and living your lives.

What’s (or who’s) got you smiling?

    Bryana! This is the most amazing post, I am SO happy for you! Friends, school, hobbies…those are all the things that should be filling your time. All of the healthy things that a normal high school student would be worrying about. There is so much more to life than obsessing about food and you’ve found that my dear. AWESOME job. You inspire me!
