Hi there! My name is Sarah. I’m a 21 year old college student following my dream of becoming a music educator. I’m currently studying at Central Michigan University and hope to graduate within the next two years. This year, I’m taking a semester off to do the Disney College Program. My program starts May 20th and lasts until next January! I’m super excited to see where things go within the next few years. I created this blog in order to document my journey in a more organized manner.
Some things about me: I’m super bubbly and outgoing and love making friends. If you’re extremely introverted, I might make you uncomfortable but I’m harmless, I swear. I play the flute and have been since 4th grade. Music is still one of my biggest passions and I can’t wait to share it with kids. I’m also an avid runner. I’ve been running for 3 years and have just completed my third marathon. I love this sport with all of my heart and will probably blog about my running experiences most. Along with being a runner, I’m a fearless eater and chef. I love trying and experimenting with new foods. If one of my recipes is a big winner, you’ll definitely find it on this blog. I don’t follow any particular diet (for reasons I’ll talk about later) so you’ll see a bit of everything. I do try to eat a lot of whole and nutritious foods while also enjoying lots of delicious treats. I also like to lift heavy weights, swim, bike and practice yoga occasionally. My goals aren’t really weight-related but I do know that I just want to run some killer marathon times, finish an ultramarathon and do an ironman.
As mentioned before, I don’t follow any particular diet because of my prior struggles with anorexia. I was a prisoner of my eating disorder for 3 years and started the journey to self-love and recovery last year. It’s been a long and very difficult journey but I can proudly say that I am in a much better place now. I don’t think I could’ve fully recovered if I went on a crazy clean-eating kick or tried vegetarianism, veganism, paleo, etc. I’ve learned to have a normal and healthy relationship with all foods. Yeah, I’ve gained about 20 lbs but the mental gains have been completely worth it. On this blog, you’ll constantly find inspiration to love yourself as is. I am firmly against promoting weight-loss as a way to have a better life. I believe in Health At Every Size as well as self-love at every size. My sass will probably to a few blog posts calling out many diet programs on their BS. I hope that my lifestyle will lead some readers to ditch the diets and love themselves.
Other than that, I love to read and listen to music. I also love to travel and learn languages. I currently can speak Arabic, German and English and hope to improve my French and learn Italian in the near future. I also love history and culture. I’m a huge nerd who watches Doctor Who, Sherlock and Supernatural religiously as well as anything Disney. I have a strong faith in God and hope to just love on as many people as possible. As much as I’m a huge talker, I also love to listen. Ultimately, I just hope that my journey can help others get to a better place.
