My name is Michelle and I'm a 21 year old boring college student (who has a blog anyways!) Academically, I'm studying Psychology, Sociology, and Criminology... although admittedly a lot of the time I'd rather be studying what's on the sale racks. That's sorta where this blog comes in -- it provides a nice little outlet for my creative side that's all too often busy with the DSM-IV.
More personally, I'm just a girl from Kentucky who loves fashion and radical self-expression through personal aesthetics. I get high off the thrill of a thrift chase and my eyes dilate at the sight of a Clearance sign. I'm a pop culture sponge who enjoys the Internet, but I also love and appreciate nature and all its simplicities. My hobbies include cuddling kittens, making ridiculously large batches of lemonade, and smashing your preconceived notions of what it means to be fat and/or on a budget and/or a bitch. Also, I don't know how to write an "About Me" without sounding like a huge asshole.
More realistically, I spend a lot of time alone, with my boyfriend, with my friends, with my family, and with other people who don't fit into any of those categories. I'm newly a DJ reigning over the airwaves Friday nights from 3am-6am Central time. Lately, I've been spending more and more time swimming (or, more accurately, not drowning, as I'm sure I'm not "properly" stroking about).
My personal style aesthetic is usually a cross between sexy grandma and preschool vibrant kitsch and my spirit animal is the majestic manatee. I identify as both a fat activist and body acceptance advocate and am a firm believer in the Health at Every Size movement. I believe that every person, no matter their shape or their size, has value and the right to feel good about themselves.

TL;DR I'm fat. I'm a bitch. I'm on a budget. This is my blog.
