The face behind the words
Hi friends! I’m Alaina and this is just my little corner of the blog world. After spending many of hours reading blogs, dedicating my life to becoming healthy, and somehow still having fun along the way- I figured maybe my journey could help someone else. Not to mention, I’d love to find some friends who can relate to my obsession with running, oatmeal, peanut butter, and fro yo (not in that particular order).
So here are the stats that you may need to know
I have recently turned 21 years old.
GO NOLES. I attend Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. Becoming a senior (woot woot) majoring in a masters in Special Education. Yes, I love kids especially those with disabilities who need extra help. No, I am still in denial that I will be poor.
I have an amazing boyfriend of (almost) 4 years old.
My mom is my best friend. I often come home from college ’cause I miss her.
My brothers and Daddy are my protectors. And I love them immensely.
(^The above picture is of me dressed up as a thug and my brothers in normal everyday gear. We grew up in NYC.)
That’s me in a very condensed nutshell.
Don’t want to seem too into myself on the first date 🙂
Oh, about the whole eating disorder thing: been there, done that. Spent almost two years not really living. Spent two years of my college experience more worried about calorie counting then having fun, making memories, or even getting an education. Spent two years trying to push everyone out of my life so I could be alone with ED. Spent two years learning the biggest and hardest lessons in life. Spent two years finding out what my family, boyfriend, and friends were made of but most importantly; spent two years proving to myself I was good enough, strong enough, brave enough to be significant in the world.

Hope you follow me as I find my way through life leading a healthy life that I can be proud of. Staying happy and healthy is my goal and nothing, i mean NOTHING, better get in MY way.
