I've registered for Nearsighted Owls "How to be a Fat Bitch" ecourse. Part one is "You are not giving up"
Today's assignment is as follows:
Write down 5 things that you are going to do that make you happy. Not "even though you are fat" but because you are fat and awesome. 5 things that have nothing to do with trying for the sake of others. 5 things for yourself and your well being. Like "go out dancing and actually dance", "throw away my scale", "make something yummy and bring it to work to share", "join a yoga class" and "wear that tight leopard skirt". Blog it, Instagram it, Tweet it (#fatbitchecourse, #nearsightedowl), etc. and share it in the comments below. EXTRA CREDIT: Do some of them!
So here we go :D
5 Things That Will Make Me HAPPY!!
1. Enrol in the Cake Decorating class at the local TAFE. It will cost $200 for 2 night classes, but it will be awesome!
2. Wear clothing that I like, not what everyone else wants me to wear.
3. Make an appointment to get my tattoo.
4. Try (REALLY TRY) not giving a shit about what one certain person in my life thinks of me, says, does etc. She doesn't matter!!!
5. Be more social :D
Hopefully I'll be able to pull all of them off. Hopefully I can do it!!!! Wish me luck!!

EDIT (added 9/03/13)
I've had a few people ask why I'd want to be a "bitch"
This e-course is not about making me into a "rude, mean evil" sort of "bitch" more of a "I don't care what you think of me" sort of "bitch"
I'm a nice person and always have been, my main problem (yes it's a problem) is I worry too much about making sure other people are happy, before making sure I'm happy.
You think you can be either "Selfish" or "Selfless" but you can actually be both and still be a nice person. Some people don't know how to pull that off.
I'm in the process of trying to become more "selfish".
You may think that that sounds like a bad idea.
I'm not being selfish as in, "I won't help someone" I'm becoming selfish as in "I will wear/do/think what I want, and not what you want!" etc.
I hope you understand what I'm going on about.
It's about finding that middle point between, being who you want to be, but still being a nice, generous person.
I hope I will find it one day.
