“Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive—it’s such an interesting world. It wouldn’t be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There’d be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
Belle, 109, the cupboard under the stairs.
I thought I might do a little ‘about me’ page to provide those of you who are interested with a little more information.
I’m currently dealing with quite a few disordered eating habits. I’ve also been struggling with self-harm for roughly seven years now. They think I have depression and anxiety; I’ve also had the terms Anorexia and Bulimia used interchangeably (not sure which category I fall into). I go to a psychiatrist that practices out of a house with high ornate ceilings and a garden that is in dire need of grooming.
I’m trying to get better.
I like to think, and I’m quite partial to over-analysis. Many people are of the opinion that thinking isn’t a hobby, but I say it is. Sometimes , I think I think too much.
I love to read, and I have quite the book collection forming. I also like to write, although I haven’t really composed anything as of late. Intelligent discussion and debate also makes me happy— politics, philosophy, science, religion…bring it!
I want to be a psychologist.
I’m also quite the avid ballet fan. I love how ballet tells a story and how every step has a name. A teacher once said to me, “if it doesn’t have a name, you’re doing it wrong!” I like that. I like tutus, pointe shoes, the smell of hairspray and gel. I like perfection. I like how you can never achieve that perfection. With ballet, you are never perfect; there is always something you can improve on, whether that be technique, performance, artistry, flexibility, strength or extensions. I like the feeling of getting lost in the music. Its just you and the music and you can dance and forget about everything else. I like how ballet is the same all over the world. No matter where you are a plie will always be called a plie and a pirouette will always be called a pirouette; the universal language of dance.
