I’m Becca, a midwestern millennial with dreams bigger than my wallet. I believe in persistence—from little things like perfecting winged liner to big things like battling and recovering from an eating disorder–I’ve endured a lot in my short 27 years of life.
I’m here to share the ups, the downs, and all the in-betweens of this crazy thing we call life, all the while having some fun along the way!
I believe in embracing uniqueness, going against the grain, being your true self, and not letting anything or anyone get in the way of living an authentic and fulfilling life.
I know it sounds cliche but once I learned that doing what makes me happy makes life that much better changed everything for me.
When I originally created this blog I wrote strictly about my eating disorder and my subsequent recovery from said eating disorder. However, it hit me one day that I wanted people to get to know the REAL me, not just the ED me. So here we are, the new and improved The Persistent Pineapple!
Although the content has changed, the goal has not.
I created The Persistent Pineapple with the goal of having a place where you, the reader, can come and feel welcome. The whole reason I chose to include the word “pineapple” in my blog (aside from being obsessed with them, myself) is because of what they represent. Warmth, friendship, and hospitality. I want to create a place online where you can come to get advice, laugh, cry, or cry from laughing so hard.
Here’s a rundown of some of the topics you can expect to read about on my blog:
- Navigating adult life
- Book reviews
- Video game reviews
- Social media tips & tricks
- Beauty (mostly makeup, but I’ll talk about other beauty-related topics too 🙂 )
- A little bit of everything else
I’ll basically write about anything under the sun, nothing’s off-limits! Have something you’d like me to write about? Let me know here!
It’s not always going to be pretty, but I can promise you that it’s always going to be real. So pull up a chair, chaise lounge, or whatever method of sitting you prefer and let’s do this!
