-meat, (aside from fish/seafood! i avoid red and white meat, like chicken and burgers and steak etc etc). i don’t like milk- so i stay away from milk entirely and try to stay away from anything that uses milk as a main ingredient (like ice cream), also- gelatin, canola, soy.
heal myself? i just like to grow- so i encourage that upon myself every day.
i don’t cry, anymore. i do tear up though, when i have vivid memories or dreams. i was in love with jax and cared about him so much but i never thought he was my soulmate. he and i both knew we weren’t right for each other. coping comes with time. it’s easier to accept when you realize that death is apart of life.
eat: seaweed salad, lentil burgers, caesar salad with fresh mahi/grouper/yellowtail, peanut butter, mangos, rice&beans, yucca, buddies (or) peter rabbit organic fruit snacks.
clothing: my favorite things to wear- my hemp sweater from Goodwill, or my boyfriend’s tee shirts and my loose jeans/denim shorts. i’m always in bathing suits but if i’m not i wear really baggy clothes, nothing ever designer really.
all of Augusten Burroughs’ books (Running With Scissors, A Wolf at the Table are my favorites), Fear of Flying by Erica Jong, A Million Little Pieces by James Frey, Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey, Jack Kerouac is good, Lord of the Flies is an old time favorite, The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, Manic by Terri Cheney.
If you like (or think you will like) to read short stories i suggest Raymond Carver, or Roberto Bolano! (Both authors are pretty twisted, but they’re brilliant writers)
I’ve gotten a D once :(
