This is my personal blog, a journal of my life; my blog of pretty things (et cetera) is here. Twenty-three. Might as well be five.
I just moved to Portland, OR, so if you're a Portland-living person, say hi! New friends for a new city are much appreciated.

Note to self: if I ever want a tattoo while I’m in/near Athens, Georgia, I’ll go to David Hale.

This is a shitty sketch that took me less than 5 minutes. But this is a rough idea of what I want my tattoo to look like. I’m glad I realized where the coloring concept was from, so I can bring a photo of that wall to the artist.

But not an actual ass tattoo, like, a lower-hip-kind-of-butt place. I’m not sure how to explain the place, but I could pull down my pants and show it to you without revealing crack. It’s not actual cheek, but it’s definitely actually the right place for a MLP stamp and I’d be able to see it.
Yes, I had a serious conversation with Leslie about this. We also discussed how I should do it in pony colors. I’m thinking I like purple.

Tara and I are getting tattoos this summer to commemorate our time together. (D’awwww.) So this is the Baskerville italic ampersand, the most beautiful ampersand of all ampersands. The Indy’s body font is Baskerville mostly because of this ampersand (but I mean the whole font is beautiful but I meannnnn) and Tara and I agreed immediately upon that decision, so this just makes a whole lot of sense.
Leslie says I should get it on my butt because I’m an “editor pony.” And you know how I love looking like a My Little Pony…
Seriously though I haven’t decided where to put it yet. I just know that it’s happening.

Rachel gave me a tattoo tonight! Hurt a little but nowhere near as badly as I was expecting. It’s beautiful, a little infinity that fits perfectly between Plymouth, Dearborn and Detroit. Love having my map on me. Love having friends who do beautiful random things like this.
I already made my first sunrise of the semester, and I’ve been here for like 16 days. Jessie and I stayed up so long with her baby hamster and just talking and laughing. I needed some realtalk and she definitely came through with it, I feel so much more aware and prepared for dealing with everything now. And it was her first sunrise, ever! Sharing sunrise is such a bonding thing—I still remember my first sunrise, after 8th grade on Ruchi’s porch with all the TAG girls. It’s just special. I feel like there’s no other way to thank her for our talk than to give her this sunrise. 
In general, I’m feeling a lot better about everything right now. The whole night made me feel secure in the friendships I’m making/building, which is obviously huge given my issues in that area. To see someone and not think, “Oh, she was just bitching about me,” is really refreshing. I need this more. Luckily, there’s more days in this weekend! And more weekends in the semester. Oh, god.
