continuing triumph






tommy hilfiger polo, f21 skirt, bcbg flats

well, friends, my spring break is finally here.
I'm not escaping to the beach, unfortunately, but I am going on a few college visits!

As far as college goes, I've come to the conclusion that a non-art school is my best bet, because I don't want to limit myself.  so I guess we'll see what I think after this week is over.  but don't be fooled, shopping will be worked into the schedule this week, as well as homework *eyes roll*.

so the other day I got to thinking about this year, junior year, and how fast it's going by.  pretty soon it will be summer 2011 and I will be a senior in high school.  isn't it insane?  for me, this year feels like the first year of a true high school experience.  freshman year = eating disorder lockdown, sophomore year = eating disorder recovery, and then junior year = regular high school girl.  honestly, I've never felt more normal in my life.  and if normal's not the right description, more myself.  it's amazing how things can change.  

speaking of triumph and change, wednesday I had my first track meet ever.  I signed up for track not really expecting anything other than getting into shape and having something to do.  I really didn't think I would even need a uniform.  but to my surprise, I was put into wednesday's track meet to run the mile.  to say I was nervous would be an understatement.  I was terrified.  I had never before competed in a high school sport, but nevertheless, I went and tried my best.  in the end, I came in last.  but hey, I did it.  and I once thought I'd never see the day.

have you ever been proud of doing something, not because of your skill, but because you finished and you got there?  if so, what was it?

  3. For me it was graduating college. I was the college version of your high school eating disorder - with a twist. Freshman and sophomore years of college were my eating disorder lockdown years; whereas junior year was my eating disorder recovery year. Senior year I was just your normal, average student, and I graduated! It's an amazing feeling! :)
