When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace
My first tattoo. Done today by Shauna S. at Robot Tattoo and Piercing.
The story behind it is that my dad used to be really annoying about telling me how much he loved me. Especially after we had spent the day doing something together, like playing tennis. He would say, “I love you” and of course I would say, “I love you too.” Then he would go on. “No, no I love you.” And I would say, exasperated “No, I love you.” He would go on until I stopped responding. Since I lived apart from my dad the last three years of his life, I always knew how important it was to tell him I loved him. “I love you” was the last thing I said to him, on Christmas morning.
Lately everything has just been a struggle. Health, school, money and just living is proving to be something I have taken for granted. I’m changing for the better and building habits to result in a positive life. I am so happy to be in a relationship that is so loving, caring, supportive and fun. I’ve definitely found the someone I need in my life to keep me motivated to becoming my true self. Us, together, feels like having a best friend and a lover at the same time.
You’re wasting all your expensive mascara.
Everything will be okay, you have it all. Your soul has been replenished from the watering cans of your friends, don’t waste it all on a single problem. It’s only as hard as you make it, this life of yours.
There are those birds you gauge your life by.
I’ve decided that since all my time is most likely going to be spent online this semester, why not keep you updated on my life? I just made a new blog, on blogger, for my ENGL 250 class. We are using that to submit our homework and also to know what’s going on in class. I’m really excited for it, mainly from the idea that it’s an environmental writing class and so far the reading has kept me intrigued.
Expect much more from me and soon you will get it.
Someone to tell me they love me to my face.
