My name is Melissa. I’m 22 years old and I love dogs, aliens, Steven Universe, LOST, and Animal Crossing. I collect thrifted objects.

I started this blog because I like to write. I studied English and Creative Writing in undergrad and I’m studying the same in grad school, but I’m also passionate about feminism, body image, and recovery. Initially, I wanted to write insightful posts about feminism, but I think I’m also going to open up about my eating disorder on here. My story isn’t special in its content, but I guess it’s special because it’s mine, and maybe talking about it will help me get better. We’ll see where this goes!
