3. I graduated high school at the age of 17 and finished early at a school for delinquents because it was the only way I could get away with finishing within a month.

4. Back to the bathroom topic, I’ll never use a handicap bathroom for fear someone who’s actually handicapped needs to use the restroom while I’m in there.

6. I briefly worked at a yoga studio before Collin and I started dating.

7. I still try to do yoga everyday; it’s the only form of exercise that doesn’t make me feel like I’m trying to burn calories, but makes me feel comfortable and strong.

8. I’m almost always scared that every slight ailment is like a killer disease. Collin makes fun of my for it, but my anxiety takes off at the smallest sign of sickness.

    I’m in awe and I’m so inspired by how you’ve overcome your struggles. I struggle with anxiety and it’s refreshing how honest your posts are! ❀️So sweet to see you so happy with your little family (you,Collin, & Prim, of course)

    I can’t wait for the tour either! I also I had a chance to see Merriment in Houston so I’m excited to hear them again. Also would love to meet a fellow blogger such as yourself. XD

    Lol at #18. I will never take printmaking again.

    I love that you make homemade salsa because homemade salsa is SOOOO much better than that jarred stuff. That’d be awesome if you posted some of your recipes.

    I had to comment on this because I quit smoking when I got to Colorado for vacation a couple of years ago as I could not breathe once I got there so be very glad you did it before! lol Thanks Colorado!

    I loved reading these! I love your honesty.

    This was so fun to read!

    I also graduated high school at the age of 17 and had to take a class at the ‘halfway’ school to do it. I found a bag of weed in my literature book on the first day there.

    I too never use the handicap bathrooms because of that same fear but one day… I had to go so bad and broke down and used it and lo and behold, there was a woman in a wheelchair waiting when I got out. I was mortified.

    I’ve found that the best workouts for me are strength based ones like yoga, pilates or barre. If I do a lot of cardio, I get amped up and feel great right after but then if I skip a day, I feel awful.

    Number 8 (about being afraid of every ailment is a disease) is totally what I do too! My boyfriend always says, “When you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.” Hah. But seriously, when I put on hairspray and a bit gets in my eye, I wonder if it’ll make me go blind.

    If you like bananas, have you ever made banana ice cream? Like literally put a frozen banana + soymilk in an ice cream maker until you have ice-cream textured bananas. So yum! I add in chocolate chips.

      This made me laugh so hard!! We are the same! And yes I have :). Well in the blender. Ice cream maker makes it best?!

      • Rachael · August 3, 2014

        Good question! I’ve never made it in a blender so I don’t know! Does a blender make it ice-cream/frozen yogurt texture?

      • BlissBranch · August 3, 2014

        It’s kinda more on the froyo tcby side. Milkshakes are fun to make, just add bananas, almond milk, dates, salt, agave, and some chocolate chips!
