Today…

I am quite emotional. Even as I am writing this it makes well up.

I was looking at my instagram, like any other normal day, and I see multiple pictures of people from old school. They had their Awards Day today. They were in their cap and gowns adorned with multiple colors of cords and yellow sashes.

I saw seas of royal blue throughout my feed. I felt like I couldn’t escape it all.

I wish I could be there with them. I wish I was in those pictures, the boomerang kind where you jump in the air.

I miss my school so much. I loved how it was so small you knew everyones names. I loved the Spirit Weeks and overall admiration that everyone felt towards our school. I loved that I had friends. I loved that I felt like they knew me and they got me. I loved the band. I love how it brings together so many people. I loved that school and everyone in it.

Good Night.

One thing

How can one accessory make you feel different about yourself?

This is how I feel about my new Warby Parker Glasses. I know I just got them tonight but I can notice the difference already. I feel prettier and more cleaner somehow. I think its the color. It brightens me. My mood even seems calmer and lighter.

I feel the same way about my tattoo. When ever I feel down I can just look at it and it just makes me feel so much better. I love it.

Well I just found out I have to give up my room for the next week…. so all that has gone out the window.

 

A Poem About my Dog

I look at her quizzically

Causing her to leap up

She challenges me

With her favorite toy

Hanging from her mouth

Frozen

Waiting for my response

The smallest movement causes her reaction

She releases her energy

Which cannot be contained

With playful barks and lurking stares

I chase her through the sunlit hallways

She has the grace of a baby deer

As she leaps to through the house

Finally, once I am able to corner her

She breaks down

Rolling on her back

Scratching at my skin

Seeking Attention

Begging for praise

Closing Another Chapter

Wednesday was my last official day of high school classes. I had one AP to complete the following Thursday and I was done. I couldn’t believe it. All these days that I had woken up at the crack of dawn to learn these mindless things and write wordless essays. I am so thankful to be done. I am one of those people who believes a they will never miss those days.

I will say I missed those days back when I was living in Alabama but I will never miss it here.

I am getting more and more anxious to about going to college every day. I use to sike myself out every time I would go up a grade. I thought it was going to be so difficult that I wouldn’t even make it the first week.

College is gonna be different. I don’t feel prepared for it. I still feel like I am a 6th grader just now getting used to lockers for the first time. I hope that over the summer this will have changed. I hope I can look back at this and smile because I was so wrong…

Goals

Just for your information, I am mainly writing on here for myself. I want to look back at what my thoughts and plans were over the years. I think it would be cool.

So this time wanted to write about my goals. My aspirations for the coming years.

  1. Find a Major – I know what you’re thinking. All freshman change their major at least once. I am not really sure what I want to do. I think being in some sort of creative major would be good for myself. I thrive on creating things from nothing. I definitely want to take a bunch of art classes this fall. But I have to think into the future about these things. What’s gonna get me far in this world. I was recently thinking about being a ophthalmologist. I think this came from my recent purchase from Warby Parker. I think it would be cool working for them. Maybe being on some sort of creative team designing the glasses, I think that would be cool.
  2. Make Friends – Ever since moving to Florida I’ve lost a lot of connections with some of my best friends. Whether this fall I reach back out to those friends or make new ones up in T-Town. I really miss going out with people (who I’m not related too). Having someone that I can say practically anything too. I can’t say it hasn’t been tough. It’s mainly my fault I guess. I’m not great at small talk and I get really nervous around groups of new people. I’m gonna have to get really out of my comfort zone this year.
  3. Grow my Vinyl Collection – This year I bought my first record player! I had received a live vinyl from one of my favorite bands for christmas but sadly had nothing to play it on. I took my time researching to find the best but most affordable one on the market. I ended up getting the Audio-Technica. After having for 5 months, I have to say it is one of my favorite purchases. I just need to build my vinyl collection. I have about nine total right now. If you have any vinyl finding tips let me know.
  4. Get another Tattoo – Honestly, I don’t know when I will be getting my next tattoo but I am always thinking of it.  It’s always in the back of my mind. I will mention something that happened to me when I visited Celebration, near Disney, on Saturday. I was checking out at a little corner bakery when the boy at the register said “Are those roses?” At first I had no idea what he was talking about. But then he mentioned my tattoo and I told him no, that they were peonies (And it doesn’t bother me that people sometimes mistake the type of flower it is). But he then began to recommend a tattoo artist for me that was just across the road. I immediately thanked him for the recommendation. I was really giddy (on the inside) that he had done that (i’d never gotten a recommendation before so it was kind of a big deal). Okay end of story.
  5. Do Good – I just want to take college as seriously as possible. I want to do my best. I don’t want all of this hard-earned money to go straight down the drain. I will get all A’s. I will be productive. I will be positive and ready to work with other people. This is a big goal but you never know if you can do something if you don’t try.

Now that I have some positive vibes I think I am ready to sleep!! Now I got this list from Question Lists on tumblr. It was originally 100 but I had to take out a lot due to repeated questions or things I didn’t feel to be appropriate. :/

Good Night!

This is a Mess

So I am already an overly nervous person to begin with but put college on top of that and I am ready to pass out.

I have all these things to fill out, money to put down for housing, and not to mention the four shots, that are probably going to be put in my butt. Oh yeah, and I currently don’t have any medical insurance, for reasons i’d rather not explain. But these things will come and go. I know that. But it’s really nerve racking.

I feel like this might not work out for me somehow. But we will see.

Schools almost out. I have 2 weeks left and I am really excited to get out of that hell hole. To be honest the teachers are wonderful but the students SUCK.

UA, I’ll be there in a few short months and that crazy to me. Roll Tide.

Artist I Hope to be Tattooed By

  1. I find it easiest to find Tattoo Artist who you like through social media. I hate the idea of going to some random shop and saying, “Hey, I want a tattoo is that cool?” No, I have to make sure that this artist is someone whose work is something that I genuinely enjoy seeing. I will start first my saying who I chose as my first tattoo Artist.
  • Erin Odea
    • I chose Erin to do my first tattoo because I loved her style. She had the thick black lines and old school style that I loved. She was located just north of Miami but I didn’t care. As long as I knew that the artist I chose would be able to create something that I loved, I would drive any distance (Not the west though). I contacted her in July wanting to schedule for September. Now, every time I see my tattoo, it gives me this boost of confidence that i never knew I could have. It makes me feel, honestly, like a bad ass! Though this is not why I got the tattoo. I got it because I loved the idea that I could have something on me, that I personally thought is FREAKING BEAUTIFUL, forever and it would be something that could never be physically stolen or taken away from me. Now my mother that’s a whole different story that will have to be told on another post. Erin, thank you so much for my tattoo and handling the situation with my mom.

Alright on to the list. My top 5 artist. Starting from the top!

  1. Myra Oh
    • Alright, this girl is so freaking amazing I don’t know what else to say. Her work is what I have been waiting for! And how freaking lucky is it that she isn’t a country away!! I love, what seems to be her signature tattoo, her pretty ladies with the flowers that cover their heads. She has to be my number one on my list because I am just in awe of her. I even bought a lovely tote and shirt from her! And I got the cutest stickers to go along with it!Screen Shot 2017-04-23 at 10.48.56 PM
  2. Jody Dawber
    • COLOR. OH MY LORD. Jody has so much talent I don’t even know where to begin. She does the incredible looking thing with her tattoos where it pretty much looks like she sprinkled them with little candies. I especially love how she does these pieces with the straight RED hearts. It looks incredible. The sad thing about Jody is that she is a country away 😦Screen Shot 2017-04-23 at 10.59.00 PM
  3. Brian Flores
    • Brian’s tattoos just LOOK so freakin fantastic.  His style is something that I just could look at forever. It’s smooth and vibrant. I really can’t describe it well so just look at the pictures below. Again, not in my country.

4. Phil DeAngulo

  • I LOVE Phil’s style. He has the solid lines of my dreams and that style that pines at my heart. Old school is my style of choice I guess I can say. It just seems like it would never go out of style. Especially the way Phil does it! See below!Screen Shot 2017-04-23 at 11.22.08 PM

5. Leslie Karin

  • Known as Catxbone on Instagram, her work is like no other. I adore the sketchy style she has to them. She makes me want to cover my whole body with crystal tattoos. I have nothing bad to say about her work. They are all so whimsical and lovely I just can’t handle myself. Just look at this Harry Potter inspired one!!

Alrighty y’all. That’s it! They’re so many more but I there is so little time! There will be a part two coming soon. Thanks for reading and check out all these fantastic Artist.

Lets Try This Again….

Last year I had started a blog. Obviously from the title that didn’t work out to well for me. I want to try again this year as I feel as though I have matured enough to have confidence in what I have to online (I am 18 so I should be mature. Right?). I hope to share on here my adventures of ending high school and starting new as a freshman in college. It should be an adventure….. maybe. Who knows if I will even be able to make it to my second blog post? See you tomorrow.. maybe?
