I never posted pictures of my pink hair because it was horrible. Lord of all things unholy and pink, it was horrible. The good news is that now it is fixed. And I am never allowed to attempt my own hair again.
I am still in the process of getting an unfortunate tattoo on my back covered up! yes, I am aware that you probably want pictures. I will try and get the before and afters as soon as I can. This is all I have so far. But it's way better than that first one! PSA: do not ever tattoo any one's name on your body. Especially when they are all "what's that? I'm still married? Meh, it's cool. I'm gonna go ahead and fall in love with someone else and lie to you about it. That's OK with you right? But have fun with my name on your back."
|original, Session 1 to the right bottom, and session 2 on the top.|
|about 9 hours in. Session 3. You can't quite see it but the top lily goes all the way up my neck with some leaves and blends into the phrase I have written there. It is very much cool. |
This is the front of that dress. Mostly because my hair looked good (and not pink, but purple like god intended), you can see the right arm tat pretty well that will creep into a full sleeve, and I got the dress for 20 bucks! What WHAT?!
I get to stand in front of people naked for money again! In the artist classy type of way. Because I am classy. And it's fun. And they PAY me to stand there naked. It's my favorite. Plus it really is an awesome quiet time to get my thoughts together, breathe, meditate, slow down, and become aware of my senses. That made me sound like a total hippie. Also, they PAY ME! But I will not be posting those pictures. you are welcome.
Musical season has come and gone again. I missed it last year because I was doing one of those jobby jobs in a office. I don't really fit in an office environment. Not so much my speed. Remember how I had the nervous breakdown and walked out and then ended up in the nuthouse again? Yeah. So probably not office jobs for me anymore. I'd rather be poor and doing what I love. So anyhow, I'm back at the piano and the musical has come and gone. I must say that I love working with these students. They work hard (mostly), this is an experience they won't have after high school (most of them), and also I love playing and helping them grow their voices. I sound like a nerd again. Sorry...um...beer. there. That hopefully un-nerded me a little. I'm also teaching again and the studio is growing. It takes so long to build up a good studio. And it's been a while since I have been mentally healthy enough to handle it again. Thank you medications!
I'm back to social sports! I was gone for a while (see above nervous breakdown). Also I started grad school and have a 4.0 right now like a boss. But, the time has come the walrus said to return to social activity. It's old friends and so many new ones. I needed the new ones as well as the less new ones. I needed people who didn't know me as that other guy's wife. I needed people who knew Angela. Who never even knew him at all and never saw the way my life revolved around someone else's happiness and how I derived my self-worth from another person. These friends of mine know me. Crazy and overly honest and loud and in charge of my own successes and failures. I'm in charge of my actions and my consequences and my own self worth. And as my friend the Commish' says "You broadcast crazy like its your job." So I guess that's a good thing? I
It's spring break, so I'll be around for a while.
