OMG Becky Look At Her Butt!

XO Everyone! Lets jump right into it!

Recently this picture was posted to Facebook.

When I saw it I was immediately hurt. Why? Because I look like this...

Defend me all you want or don't but I see some major similarities. I hear a lot that its more socially acceptable to be skinny. I can tell you that in my 27 years that I have never been socially accepted for being under 100lbs my WHOLE life. I was on a ladder one day in a retail store I used to work at and I all of the sudden feel someones hand on my waist assessing its size and I hear "Oh my God, do you ever eat?"In a VERY snobby voice. Why would anyone think any of that was "ok?"

I was only 18 and at work so I replied with a yes and smiled. Is it ok if I walked up to an "above average" person and grabbed their waist and said "Omg, do you ever stop eating?"All of my life people have made me feel like I should be ashamed of being thin. Men turning me down because I am "too skinny." Strangers, and in one case a doctor, thinking I MUST have an eating disorder. If you know me, you know I LOVE food and eat all day long. Yes it stays down. However, most of you don't know me.

People seem to think when you are skinny your life is perfect. WRONG! I can tell you in my personal experience that I have struggled with health problems, acne, clothing not fitting, etc my whole life. I have cried numerous times trying on bras, tops and denim. Not to mention the negative stares and comments I hear as I walk through the mall or a store. I don't feel its necessary to go through everything with all of you. Thats the point. As a person, its not fair to judge someone. People judge me by assuming I don't eat and that is the only possible reason I am thin. Or is it that I don't eat right? Again, my point. I have told you some and nothing at the same time. Is it fair to assume that "celebs" MUST be teaching the world and the young you HAVE to be thin? Is it maybe that celebs are being taught the wrong things? Im sorry but Keira Knightly is actually VERY healthy indicated by her 6 pack abs. Through out history there have always been different shapes and sizes. Nothing has changed, people have just gotten more openly careless with there sexual side. Where the heck is Audrey in that set of photos? She was always very thin!

My last example is this...There is a girl out there who doesn't like me because of my size. She believes my life is perfect and dislikes me for this. She has never said this to me and would be very surprised to find out the truth. Food for thought below with Miss Jenna Marbles...

We should spend more time working on ourselves and being happy in our own lives then bullying others. Let it flow. Please comment below.

I have something you may want to see...

I Have a Bonus post for you!

I was doing some doodling last night and I thought I would share it with you! They are some recreations and interpretations of images I found while searching on a few websites.
I had a hard time getting the bodies right. Drawing is tricky. This next sketch was actually drawn first.

Pretty Cute Right?!

I enjoy drawing from time to time. I used to do way more when I was younger. It seems the older you get, the less time you have for the things that really make you feel stellar inside. Unless you are rich and have no need for work. 

I am working on incorporating these drawings into more things. Im not totally sure what I mean by that but we will all find out soon enough. Thats kind of the fun of this whole business adventure process! 

Thats all for now!

No, the world's not ending. We're just taking it over!


A fox smile heals all!

I really hope everyone has taken some time to re evaluate their situations and created some goals to improve your already awesome life! There is always room for improvement right!?!? This is how I ended 2011.

Its AMAZING lobster mac and cheese from Maestros in Saratoga Springs, NY. There were HUGE chunks of lobster! So good! This was my last mean before 2012 and boy was it perfect! I ended up having to work and got out around 10:30 so I was able to enjoy some of the festivities of our local First Night New Years Celebration.

This was my First Night Badge. You have to wear on in order to get into the awesome events they have each year all over Saratoga. I LOVED the punk cabaret feel to the artwork this year!

I was hoping to have some really sweet tee shirt designs to show you this blog but the friend who is helping me out is still working on them. Patience is key! So soon soon! 2012 is already off to a great start!

How can we say "It Gets Better" in a different way?

This question was prompted by The organization "It Gets Better," created by Dan Savage. I watched a few of their videos encouraging LBGT teens in middle school and high school to tough out those years because life gets better. I don't believe we should have to TOUGH out those years so how can we turn the fight into a change? (Please Comment Below! :) )

HF has created some Foxtastic goals for 2012. I can't wait to reach every single one and more! (coming soon in our next post!)
