I have had a pretty good day
for starters, i had to retake my placement tests for school. my appointment was at 0830 for math and essay. i started work at 0615 because i wanted plenty of time to be sure my brain was awake and to eat a good breakfast. i was so nauseated while waiting to be sat in the testing room. i paid extra attention to my essay since i had previously scored too low when i tested in February. i followed all the tips that my friends, family, and tutor had given me and i am proud to say
i could have cried when i found out! i had been so nervous
so now all i have left is my CPR class this Saturday then i can see my counselor next week to complete ranking for my degree plan. i start this fall and graduate june 2014
also, i checked my bank online and see that my tax refund is scheduled to be in my account come tomorrow morning. i will first pay for tuition and put some aside for school books but i have some left over after that. i contacted my tattoo artist and will see him tomorrow to discuss my next 2 tattoos and set appointments.
i hope to get one on friday (if he has an opening) and the other in 2 weeks. i will keep you posted, of course!
so i finished sketching out the 2 tats just now. let me remind you: i am no artist. good thing is, my artis is good at taking what looks like an 8 year old drew it and making it awesome.
first i want to get a bough of holly. i will have it colored green and red, naturally.
i will put this on my right forearm just in front of the crook of my elbow
and then in 2 weeks i want to get a candle burning at both ends. i have reserched the meaning behind different colors and decided to color this piece blue. i will put it on either arm just below where the elbow bone sticks out. i am pretty scared of the pain in this area. wish me luck!
if you are wondering why i chose blue it is to remind me that while i am often burning the candle at both ends more often than i should, i need to remain:
calm, relaxed, loveable, optimistic, lively, joyful, calm, warm, giving, approachable, feminine, (like) water, tranquil, stable, strong, healthy, and dependable
and since i have uploaded cell phone pictures that i took today, i decided to include this picture of my sweet hearts sleeping in a heart formation
arent they so cute!
