Today, Hyde and Seek turns one year old! It’s been an amazing year, filled with drama, realization, revamping, and a co-blogger (who, coincidentally, just had a birthday on Sunday! Happy belated birthday to IntellectualFeminist!)
While now my blogging is relegated to when I can afford to spend time away from working, studying for entrance exams, job hunting, and my writing projects, the journey that I began on October 21st of last year is still going strong. My consciousness has been raised in ways I never thought it would have been, and every day I am still learning more about myself and this movement as a whole. I’m grateful for it.
I’ve mentioned the wedding I’ll be in come December. See, before FA, I would have been losing my MIND trying to get my body right and my life as whole together before I went back to see the friends I’ve come to know as sisters in spirit. Now? I’m just looking forward to wearing a beautiful dress and helping one of my best friends celebrate her marriage. Just not having the weight of…well, my weight on my shoulders has been invaluable to me. So Fatosphere, I’d like to thank y’all. Not only for helping me with my own body issues, but being brave enough to share y’alls issues. And then for putting up with me through my sometimes rambly (and now, my few) posts. 🙂
And just to cap this whole thing off, how about a throwback hit? I find this one pretty apropos of the occasion:
It’s been an amazing year, y’all. Thanks for sharing it with me.
