existential crisis, piercings and tattoo

Things are looking up, Finally.

My therapist poked a hole in my existential crisis logic today. My logic was as follows;

We're all going to die. The human race will die. The earth will get engulfed by the sun. What is the point? In the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter. Why bother?

He answered me as follows:
Do you watch movies? Or do you skip them because you know their going to end. In the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter?

He's right. I enjoy movies even though there's no point in the end. We do lots of things that have no point in the end. But we still do them. And we should do life.

In other news I got my belly button pierced today! And no, I'm not at my UGW, and today I decided that that didn't matter. I don't need to be a certain weight to get pierced.

I have updated my tattoo design, which I will hopefully be getting next weekend as long as my discharge goes as planned. The lotus flower represents how I've risen from my eating disorder (neda symbol) and my stepmom's passing (star).

  1. Wow, I love that design! I have two navel piercings, and neither were done at weights that I was particularly confident at. Sometimes it just feels good to say 'fuck it' and go for it :)
