yup! once the first press is shipped the label is planning on putting up a second pressing in a different color. thank you so much to everyone who’s been so patient with this first batch by the way! i’m really excited to start releasing my stuff on vinyl. first presses are always hell, but once the plates are made everything speeds up a lot.

Anonymous said: I feel like no guy is ever going to love me because I'm not a size two and every guy I've ever liked turned me down because "I'm not a chubby chaser". And I don't know why I'm telling you this but I'm just really sad and I can't stop crying.

well, first of all, forget about these guys for a second. what do you think about yourself? do you see the beautiful aspects of your body? as long as you genuinely believe that you’re beautiful, then you’re beautiful, and it becomes easier for other people to notice that beauty. it’s as simple as that. it’s not as easy as that, but as far as simplicity goes, thats more or less how it works.

i used to hate the way i looked because i’m scrawny, have spindly little hands, and hair that runs up my stomach, and barely to my chest. i have little faded scars on my arms and legs, and a giant scar running up my left arm that i hid for years. it wasn’t until i got really into writing and describing all of these little aspects of myself that i learned to appreciate them. one morning i woke up and was like, “holy shit, this is MY body. what a cute little work of art it is.” and i’ve basically been that way ever since.

i don’t know, society is a weird thing. it’s constantly projecting its constantly changing concept of beauty onto the world and the impact of that always leaves somebody feeling like they’re not good enough. don’t let the current state of that, whatever it may be, make you feel like no one will ever love you, that’s just not true. 

i’m not just saying this to make you feel better. i don’t know how old you are, but i just turned twenty four this summer and like a quarter of the straight males i know have a legitimate and open preference for heavier girls and don’t even pursue thinner girls. a preference is a preference, and real peoples preferences are much more colorful and varied than we’re taught to believe growing up. but again, my biggest word of advice would be to love yourself. it really does help. learn to love every little inch of your body and, soon enough, someone will explore it like a map and learn to love it too. inch by inch.

and if you’re old enough join okcupid or some shit

Anonymous said: I'd just like to wholeheartedly thank you for your response on that ED anon because I go through the same thing and when people ask me that it makes me feel even shittier so although I'd never wish it on anyone ever I kind of find solace in the fact that someone else understands what I'm going through.

no problem. just keep in mind that anxiety related eating disorders are so insanely common and there’s so much you can do to help yourself. you should look into it more. i’m not the only person who understands, so many people out there get what you’re going through.

fuck every single person on planet earth who says “well its her fault for taking those pictures in the first place” every time celebrity nudes are leaked. what the fuck? people are allowed to take pictures of their OWN FUCKING BODIES you dip shit. they’re also allowed to send those pictures to whoever the fuck they want. your body belongs to you, whatever pictures you take of it belong to you, and if something happens then something happens. hackers steal, ex’s betray you, but it is never ever ever your fault for liking your body enough to take pictures of it

Stupidest thing I’ve read today.

i hope one day someone steals your car and the whole world collectively shrugs and goes “well, its your fault for buying such a nice car. what did you expect?” and no one files charges because your blog is literally horrible

Anonymous said: Sorry (this a bit of a personal question) but why do you have problems with eating like why don't you eat?

well, people who have an anxiety disorder usually also deal with digestive problems or eating problems as a result. during high anxiety or panic, your body shuts down its digestion to focus its energy on dealing with the invisible danger of a panic attack. your body can also start to associate the sensations of eating, being full, etc with panic, so eating in itself becomes a trigger. it all comes and goes, and you can overcome it just like you can overcome all aspects of a panic disorder with the right work, but it’s important to keep in mind that it’s a totally different category of disorder than the more typical self image based ed that some people deal with.

and just for future reference, “like why don’t you eat” is a pretty insensitive way to approach discussing an eating disorder. in case you were going to talk to someone else about this.

recovery #04 (vacuum)

you were so beautiful at twenty three
you are so beautiful at twenty five
when i think about it i feel how
the ocean must feel when it
crashes against the cliffs
trying to reach homes that
don’t belong there

today i missed you so much
i left the vacuum running for
fifteen minutes
just to lie beside it
and fall apart

what a loud world
