I stumbled across the Fat Acceptance Movement in early March 2008 and have since literally dunked myself in it. I am learning to accept myself, and am working on making myself healthier. I hope this blog will be a good outlet for me to not only track my progression through this movement, and document my discoveries and feelings, but also will open the eyes of those who read it. Whether or not anyone reads it…well that’s a different story.
I have a BA in Political Science from Kalamazoo College and will be attending George Mason University, starting in Fall 2010 to get my MFA in Creative Writing. I am an avid pursuer of social justice, and a writer of nonfiction, poetry, plays and screenplays. I enjoy documentary filmmaking and video editing. My favorite book is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (ah, childhood), and I enjoy cutesy words with double letters (bubbles, puppies, muffins, etc). Beyond that, I’m a gal who loves to laugh and spend time with friends.
