embrace the sun

Alyssa, 22, Los Angeles

Coffee, cheese, beer, getting bendy, sunflowers, sweat, marching band, and all other good things in life.

Documenting my transition from teenager to adult.

"I don’t mind getting naked or seeing you naked. I don’t mind talking about sex or having sex or never having sex. I don’t mind my body or your body with mine. I don’t mind your sweaty palms, your chapped lips, your dirty tongue. I don’t mind your noisy music, your crappy poetry, your soiled shoes and ugly handwriting. I don’t mind 2ams and late night phone calls, stolen kisses and white lies. I don’t mind your half-eaten donut, frozen teabags and sticky hair. I want your toothbrush’s head leaning towards mine. I want your 4am back massage. Cup my breasts and don’t say they’re small. I already know that. Kiss me once and kiss me more. Pretend what we’re doing is illegal. It’s always good to be caught with our mouths tied together like handcuffs. Dry your cheeks and make me bleed. Crave me. Crave me. Crave me."

There’s nothing like a new pair of perfectly fitting jeans to make you feel like the babeliest babe of Babeland.

This is my life, every day. Listening to humans trying to order coffee is the WORST.

"You are not useless. You are not hopeless. And no matter how scared you are, you will never be alone. And deep down, somewhere, in the part of you that decided the good days and your happiness and your health were all worth fighting for, you know that, too. Hold onto that knowledge. It will see you through the worst."

So. This blog is supposed to be about getting healthy. I finally feel healthy again. This time last year, I weighed at least ten pounds less than I do now. I wasn’t eating, wasn’t exercising. I spent most of my time in bed or at work, depressed out of my mind. I hated my body, hated myself, no matter how skinny I got. 
The past few months have been hard. I got physically healthy again but my brain was still off. I wanted to regress into starvation & guilt & depression so badly. I started avoiding certain foods and started becoming obsessive again. 
Then, one day, I decided to just be happy. To not let things affect me anymore, to see the good. I eat what I want now. I run 3-6 times a week. I can run 7 minute miles and I feel invincible. I am 150 pounds of muscle & meat (& booty, chicka yeah) & I love every piece of it. I’m so happy to finally be in a good place again, to be feeling free & alive & confident & healthy again. It’s been a long road to get here & it’s not over but at least I’m getting somewhere good.

Please be healthy, please be confident with who you are & what you are. Be free.
