So I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but I've been so busy.  School is intense this semester, I have a part time job, and I've also been skating more. I don't mind, but, it leaves me very little time to socialize and sometimes I feel guilty about that. My school is extremely small, so almost everyone in my cohort knows each other and they have regular get-togethers out side of school. I've only attended a couple of these because usually it just doesn't work out with my schedule and I'll admit that I just feel awkward around groups of people. But, I don't want to be known as the girl who never does anything and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings... How do you guys handle busy schedules and social obligations?

And I have another dilemma. Since I've been skating more, I've been wanting to test a certain ice dance. To do this I need to skate with a guy acting as a prop or partner. Originally, I was practicing with my friend R because he's tested this dance and because he let's me trade bread for lessons (don't ask lol). I've found out, though, that he doesn't really do the dance correctly and that the judges probably don't like his style of skating. So now, I'm going to test with S who IS a true ice dance coach and has taken dozens of skaters through this test. My problem is that I don't want to hurt R's feelings. I know he assumed that he would test with me, even though I never expressely said I was going to do it with him.  I just don't want to be rude or mean, but I do want to pass the test!

So that's my life right now. Other than that, things have been going well.  I've struggled a bit with eating especially at school, but not to the point I can't handle it.  I've really been trying to slow down and stop worrying so much, like I said in my other post. I figure if God thinks I can handle whatever is thrown at me, than I can. :)

I have been a bit uninspired with writing lately, so if you guys have any questions or suggestions feel free to weigh in! I will do a tasty food themed post soon though complete with pictures. ;) And thanks so much for all the comments! I really appreciate it. :)


  1. I'm glad you're doing okay!(: Skating sounds like a lot of fun, I used to skate a lot too but then I stopped and grew out of my skates. It's okay, you have to do whats best for you and you can just tell that to R. I don't think he'll think you're being rude or mean. Thanks for your comments on my posts too!

  2. It sounds like you have been busy lately. That is good. ;)

    I have noticed that among people with ED have always struggled with fitting in and socializing. You are not alone. I am in my mid-20's and still struggle with this!


  3. I know what you mean about the socializing thing. I like to do things in smaller groups, when I know and like and completely trust everyone in the group, but I absolutely hate huge things where I don't know many people. I also don't like social events that involve food, especially things that are my "fear" foods, like pizza and ice cream. So I do avoid that stuff and I feel bad, but if I were part of it, I wouldn't be having much fun anyway. So I totally get where you're coming from.
