Re-welcome to my blog

It's been such a long time since I posted on this blog, that I completely forgot it existed. I don't expect anyone to read my old posts (they're not very interesting), but it's interesting to look back and see how unreal I was on my blog. I compare my posts from my tumblr around that time to my posts on here, and I was so deep in my ED at that time.
But regardless, this is about how I am now, not then. I'm sure if you're reading my blog you already know a little bit about me. I have not decided quite yet how I'm going to use this blog. Yes, my eating disorder is still a bit of a struggle for me (much different now than a few years ago, thank goodness), but I don't want this to be all about my eating disorder. Because I'm much more than that, right?
When I blog, it tends to be emotionally driven. But I want to steer away from that and be just real and vulnerable on here. There's not a lot I won't share about myself, but there are also some things that I'm not going to share on here. I want this blog to include the good, and the bad. I have a couple ideas for blog posts, but I also want feedback from you. I want my blog to be interactive. Right now I'm just experimenting with this, but we will see where it takes me.
One thing I want to be on my blog is open and vulnerable. We all have a lot of shit that goes on in our heads, and we deal with it in different ways, but I have found that being more open about my struggles has helped me move forward in my recovery, because nothing is a secret. And I want to encourage you to be vulnerable with me in your feedback.
So enough about what my blog is going to be about. I'll do a super quick intro for those who might just be coming across my blog. Hi, I'm Sarah. I'm 25, and yes I'm still in college. But I'm due to graduate in December with a bachelor's degree in Family Science. My hope is to go to Towson next Fall and o into their graduate program for Child Life Specialists, and become a Child Life Specialist that works in a hospital setting with children and their families. On top of a full load of classes, I volunteer about 4 days a week under the supervision of a Child Life Specialist, and also do a lot of overnight babysitting.
Some interesting or unique things about me.... Anyone who knows me knows I'm super obsessed with unicorns. Like it is crazy, and ridiculous, and if there's a unicorn I will go crazy about it. I also love pink and glitter and really girly things. But at the same time I love rough housing and playing in mud. Coffee is addictive and I could drink it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (although, I don't think that would meet my exchanges). I'm a vegetarian for animal rights reasons, and I love animals more than anything. I'm also one of 10 kids, the second oldest. Being in a big family IS challenging, but I love my family more than anything, and could not have asked for a better family.
So there you go. There's my intro post. Feel free to do the whole comment thing, subscribe, give feedback, etc. More posts to come soon.
