starting fresh

so its final.
I'm a senior.
 school is out.
I'm loving life.
and blogging..well..

here's the thing: when I first started blogging, I was blogging for self-help and getting the input of readers.  I was in a lousy place back then.  now everything is different.  I am at a point in my journey where I want to separate the past from the present.  the past meaning my eating disorder, and the present meaning where I am today.  I no longer want to define myself by my eating disorder.  I just want to live my life, love fashion, and be young!  blogging is such a wonderful outlet, but at the same time, I don't want to force words out of my head that regurgitate my past, which I've dealt with in therapy and will probably deal with more when I'm older.  so consider this a renewal of secret doors.  I won't be writing much, if even at all, about my past with anorexia.  I will be gearing this blog more towards fashion and everyday life.
this is Emily's blog.  and Emily is no longer going to live in ED's shadow.
