Beautiful Blogger Award ♥

Hey guys! Today is going to be an irregular post, perfect for the first day of 2O1O. I got tagged by the lovely and artistic Vanilla Swirl AKA Eliane!

If you want to check out her blog, click here. :) I highly recommend it, her posts are so unique and filled with cute graphics and yummy eats! ^^

How was 2OO9 for you? It could have been better for me. :( I spent my 14th birthday in Disneyland, the happiest place on Earth, but I was miserable. Why? You can thank ED for that one.

Throughout the entire plane ride there and back, I was up because it hurt to sit down on my bones for so long. My hair was thin and brittle and I always wore a sweatshirt because I was ashamed of my body. People could still tell, though, and I had to deal with horrified stares everyday. I was 79 pounds at 5' 8", a deadly weight with a BMI of 12.

All I wanted was to look healthy, but I couldn't bring myself to eat. It was living hell, as I'm sure many of you can relate with. My family didn't understand me, and to this day think I lied to them about food because I wanted to. They don't feel that it's a MENTAL disorder, something I wish I could get them to understand. Ah, well, there's always something to work on.

So, on to the award!

7 Random Facts about Me:

1. I was almost named Arielle after the Little Mermaid, but that became my middle name instead.

2. I desperately am trying to teach myself guitar, unsuccessfully.

3. I am half Chinese, half Irish.

4. When I was little, I had bright red hair (COUGH Irish COUGH)

5. I have an obsession with reading; there are three bookshelves in my room!

6. My favorite band is Escape the Fate.

7. I'm only a freshman in high school!

So that's it! I've never done this before, but here's a question for you to answer in the comments. :) This is a "different" post to say the least!

Question: What's your New Year's Resolution? (very original, I know...)

EDIT: Ha, I forgot to tag people. :P

Here are my seven:

7. Nattie: Eating to Live

  6. New Year's resolution? I don't be happy! :) Vague, but harder than it sounds!

    Lovely photo of you<3

  7. I had no idea you were so young!!!! You must be incredibly mature for your age, as I can usually tell (or at least come close to telling) how old someone is by how they write.

    I had red hair as a baby too :) I also had an ED, as you may already know, and because of that I can understand how great you feel to have successfully overcome your ED, so congrats to you. HAppy New Year!

  9. hey thanks for the tag-what exactly do I have to do? hahah

  10. Just list seven things about yourself and tag seven other people :) Easy!

  11. The bookshelf's thing cracked me up. I'm at 8 book cases and at least 12 boxes of book's in two closets. Not counting misc books in the car.

    Sorry you didn't have fun at disney, I'm ussually able to have fun there. Of course I also try to not eat anything but healthy there (right that works well!) Hope this year goes well for you and you get into a more healthy body and mind.

  12. Hi! It's me again, but I felt like commenting again because my 1st comment was way too short! I was in hurry...could you tell? =^.^=

    You had red hair???! When I was little, that was my ultimate dream, lol. Like in mangas. I wanted to look like one of the character xD(Lina from Slayers). Of course, my mom opposed to this. Can't blame her!

    It's cool that you are in high school...I feel like everyone else is around 20 here! We're 'baby bloggers' :p

    My mom still thinks that to be anorexic, you have to be BORN like this, and thereford, I think she thinks that it should be diagnosticated immediately...*Sigh*

    So funny you forgot to tag the people...x)


  13. Aww thanks hun! You totally made my day! *hugs* And I love red hair!!! I think it's haaaawt!
