Sweet 16 & A Half?

Happy Friday, ladies! Yay, another weekend is upon us! I am so excited for this weekend–it’s another one at home, which is always fun and busy. This one involves grocery shopping πŸ˜€ , possibly making dinner and…oh yeah, a trip to urgent care. Say what? Yeah, my foot still hurts when I walk or stand on it, and since I didn’t have time to get back home today to get it checked out, I have to go into the urgent care tomorrow to see what’s up with it. Probably won’t be the funnest way to spendΒ a Saturday morning, but I wanna get it taken care of, whatever the problem is.

Sweet, I'm 16 again. So why do I have all these college-level classes?

Β UmmmmmmΒ so yeah, according to RealAge, I’m 16 and a half. Right on. I must be doing something right. Except, honestly, when I was 16 1/2, I wasn’t that healthy. That was actually the height of my eating disorder–so I was starving myself and my mind was in an awful place. So I’m psyched that my “real age” health-wise isΒ two and a halfΒ  years younger than my actual age, but I’m glad I’m not actually 16 1/2, or I’d be so messed up. I know I haven’t talked much about my anorexia on here, but I’d really love to hear your feedback on whether or not you’d like a post or two on my ED history. I know a lot of you out there struggle with it (or have struggled with it) too, so maybe you’d like to hear my personal story. Just let me know, k?

Anywho, this is just a super-quick update before I head home. I’ll let you all know about the foot situation, what I made (fingers crossed it turns out amazing) and what else went down this weekend. Oh yeah, and it’s totally Homecoming weekend here which is ironic since I’m going home πŸ˜› Last year the HC festivities were fun and all, but this year my parents couldn’t make it up here so I decided just to head back down and spend the weekend at home. But…go Rams at the game tomorrow! We will be kicking some San Jose State butt…hopefully πŸ˜‰

What are you up to this weekend? Would you like to hear more about my eating disorder story?

  1. I like hearing about people’s eating disorder stories. I haven’t really shared mine on my blog… every time I mention it I get some email about someone worrying about me. It’s actually really annoying, as if they think I don’t know how to handle myself or something. Still, if you want to share it, I would be totally up for it because I can relate!

  2. Dude I took that quiz and supposedly I’m 4!! Haha crazy πŸ˜‰
    I’d love to hear your story. Personally, when I shared mine, I felt like I got a lot stronger since SO many bloggers could relate. Whatever you decide, I still look so forward to your posts lady πŸ™‚
    Have an amazing weekend!and, even though I’m not at CSU anymore…GO RAMS! πŸ˜€

    • Bahaha 4?! That is so crazy but awesome–it’s a perfect excuse to act like a little kid πŸ˜‰

      Awh, thank you! I always love all your posts too! And yes…GO RAMS πŸ˜›

    I’m skipping the homecoming festivities at my school too.
    I would love to hear your story, only if you’re comfortable with sharing it of course.

  4. I would be interested in hearing your story! You might get some snarky emails just to warn you though. But I like hearing other people’s journeys , as I am working through mine still πŸ™‚

  5. If you are comfortable I would love to know more! I know it’s difficult to share with the public and a lot of things need to be considered, but if you need to share your story you will know and feel that it is the right thing to do! You have many supportive readers and we will support your story and I am sure many of us could relate, too πŸ™‚

    Girrrl I hope your foot feels better soon. I def know what thats like and it is so not fun. Oh being 16 and a half. That was the year I thought I was so cool because I could drive. It got old quick. Actually people think I look like I’m 16-18, and I’m just like uh what I’m 21. People these days. I would love to know more about your story. As a dietetics student, it’s always beneficial to learn from others, so in the future I can help before its too late or gets too extreme.

    • Thanks πŸ˜€ People tell me I look like I’m
      in high school all the time and when I went to urgent care, the guy directed me to the pediatrics desk and I’m like um I’m 19 haha!

  7. I took that a couple weeks ago and it said I’m 16.2 (and I’m actually 18). Thank goodness I’m not 16 again (uhm- i’d be back in school. NO THANK YOU! I’ll stick with college and being actually healthier now than I was back then).
    I would love to hear about you’re story! I think sharing stories about our struggles really helps everyone connect and the responses are amazing. Hope you do share it!

    Have a great rest of your weekend!

    • I’m so with you–college is wayyyy better than high school!

      I am definitely going to be sharing my story. I completely agree that it builds a connection with other readers and I’m glad so many people are interested.

  8. Im sending you and your foot healing thoughts<3 I hope youll feel better soon!
