Happy New Year

Anti Resolute 2014

Soooo….. what are your resolutions? I’m not really making any right now. I am just not feeling in the mood to make dramatic (or not-so-dramatic) commitments to change in my life right now. Maybe that is a cue to make a change, but I’m not taking that cue at the …

Okay, I’m not going to devote an entire week to complaining, but I’m going to get some things off my chest! Body Issues I feel a little like my body is a foreign land that I’m trapped in and I don’t know the language. There’s just something that feels a …
