an experience

it's so good to be home.  I missed you all and your fabulous blogs so much! My google reader was overwhelming, but I finally made through it :)

Anyway, back to the deets on SCAD!
Last week was truly a life changing experience.  Everything I had been working for in recovery collaborated.  I was fun, I was vibrant, I was Blemily at her best.  Not to mention I ate what I wanted, when I wanted it.  I experienced a freedom that I hadn't experienced before.  I had room to think, room to breathe.  I wasn't obsessing over who looked better than me, or how many calories were in a slice of pizza, I focused on having a good time; I focused on living.  And, lucky for me, I met the sweetest people in the whole wide world, that I instantly connected with.  I may have only just met them, but I already feel a closeness that I can't even explain.  I know in my heart that we will be friends for a long time, despite where we are in the world; be it spain, texas, or louisiana.

I believe that last week was the start of a new phase of my life.  It makes me believe that anything is possible.  I never want to settle for anything.  I never want to lead a life that I, myself, am not fully happy with.  Why not do what you love?  Why not go for your dreams?  You only have one life and to live that life with limitations is not really living.  Sure, I might sound cliche, I'll be the first to admit to it, but to say that there is an inexplicable euphoria would be an understatement.  It was complete bliss.  And it's out there for you, too.  You just have to find what makes you happy and run with it.

As far as SCAD goes, it was beautiful.  The facilities were amazing and the people were so friendly, including the professors.  On the other hand, I still want to look at other art schools.  This includes FIDM and Parson's.  But who knows..maybe I'll end up in Savannah!

Well, my friends, I am on such a fashion high right now that I think I'm either going to begin sewing *gasp* or sketch :)

have a good one!


  1. I'm so happy for you Emily (Blemily?)! You deserve all the happiness this world has to offer and you are SO right about going for our dreams. I believe in reincarnation but I also know that we are THIS person only once so why waste this life doing things that don't make us insanely happy? Other people can settle for less but I won't and can't.

  2. Oh emily <3
    love you and all your joy!!

  3. Dream and dream big Emily... follow your heart. xoxo
