Things I Wish I’d Done Before I Got My Forearm Tattoo

When I’m Scared, I Tell Myself…

Moments of bravery:  we all have them.  Do you, like me, use your personal moments of bravery in times of struggle?  In a previous post, I mentioned how much I challenged myself in 2015 and the confidence those moments of challenge gave me when faced with mundane, everyday moments of[…]

How I Want To Spend My Summer Vacation

What a ride the past nine months have been!  It felt so much longer.  I got incredibly drunk (one – ONE frozen mojito!) after school with my coworkers on Tuesday to put the year behind me and look forward to this summer.  Of course, I’m looking for a new job[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Fandom Guilty Pleasures

Normally I would say “Nothing you enjoy should make you feel guilty!” but there are those things you cringe to admit like… 1.  I adore the Twilight series  and I’m glad to see it popping up on other people’s lists too!  I feel so bad because the books are a[…]

The New Year’s Eve Meme from Sunday Stealing! In 2014, I gained:  a new job, a new friend, and a hot boyfriend. Hi! I lost:  my first pet, Charlie. I stopped:  working in retail – “and that has made all the difference.”  I never realized how shitty I was being[…]

Hiya!  It’s snowy and awful here in New York City, and my mom is coming in to visit for the day!  I’m leaving the house, whether I like it or not, and going to try to have fun.  In the meantime, here’s a bunch of bits from the internet that[…]

1 Year Old!

I completely forgot! November 17th was my one-year anniversary of my two left-hand tattoos (in my head I called them “the twins” because they happened in the same sitting) Happy Birthday, babies!!!

There’s Got to Be a Morning After(care)

This is a post about my tattoo healing process.  Some people may be grossed out or even offended by the descriptions.  Also, my experience may be different from your experience, and each tattoo heals differently under different circumstances.  This is a (hopefully) humourous look at my own circumstances. “It rubs[…]

Ma Vie En Rose

Last week’s cold, rainy Friday, I went off to finally get my rose tattoo done.  After years of turning it over in my head, fantasizing, and saving up money, months of appointments and consultations, and days of preparation for the pain, I finally went through with it and felt…amazing. During[…]
