Tainted Love

Sometimes I feel I've got to Run away, I've got to Get away from the pain you drive into the heart of me The love we share Seems to go nowhere And I've lost my light For I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night The words of the song burst through the gym’s … Continue reading Tainted Love


A little goes a long way

I've been thinking a lot. About life. My past and future. Goals. And in each of my thinking sessions the word 'encouragement' comes up a lot. This noun is present in my life, but not prevalent.

What’s Up with the Thigh Gap Trend?

Today, I was reading College Candy's post about the thigh gap. I nearly forgot this was a "in" because I have long stepped away from the world of thinspo. The article spoke about how this frightening trend could be surgically added, but also the author's take on this trend.
