A Little Bit of Crazy

Ladies and Gents, I have done the crazy. I am a college student and have decided to go down the crazy path that crazy college students do. No I didn't go to some crazy kegger, no I didn't get my nipples pierced (honestly people, I said crazy not straight-up masochistic), and no, I didn't run off to Vegas with Josh and get married by a preacher-man who looks like Elvis. tattoos. Not a tattoo. Tattoos. Plural. Two. Painful.

I have one on each wrist now. I'm rather happy about it, and I continuously look at it going "What on earth did I do?". Mostly because it's in a rather difficult to hide location. Wrists don't just disappear. And in Arkansas long sleeves are not your friend in the warm months.

For those considering getting a tattoo, honestly I don't recommend it. It really did hurt. A lot. And it is permanent. I know you know that, but it really doesn't hit you what that actually means until there is this image on your skin and you're looking at it thinking "This is there. Forever. For. Ever.". It's rather unsettling when you starting thinking about careers and children. Also, if your finace doesn't really approve, just go along with him/her. Josh wasn't happy at all about mine. He's moved on since there's nothing he can do about it, but he still doesn't like it.

Basically I have them. I'm happy I have them. And I have the "It's college." excuse when people ask why I did something so flat out crazy. It's all fantastic.

The blurry one says "You can't take the sky from me". It's on my left wrist.

Useless SAL and Whatever Else

It is March 4th and so it's time for the next Totally Useless Stitch-Along post! I've done quite a bit and my bottle is filling! It's actually kinda neat looking.

Much has been done, and I'll post about those later. No really! I will!

Which brings me to my next point: Y'all I. Am. Busy. Oh my goodness. This semester, combined with my job, combined with planning a wedding, combined with trying to figure out what to do with myself after graduation this May has left me quite literally ZERO extra hours for things. Any kinds of things. I mean, I only see my fiance for about an hour a day if I'm lucky. It's chaotic.

However, good things have come from it as well. I have applied for the apartment I want to move into after graduation. This is the same apartment that Josh will move into once we're married! So I'm going to be living in our home. It's actually pretty awesome. I've only applied though, not put down the deposit. But I really can't think of a reason I'd be denied. My worry-loving brain just makes me think I'll get denied for some reason.

My roommate (who is also a bridesmaid) and I have spring break starting a week from this Saturday! She's coming up home with me so that my mom, sister (Matron of Honor) and she can start really getting into the wedding thing! We're going dress shopping and doing all those fun things! And with as frazzled as I'm getting, bring on the spring break! Ugh!

There is a thing going on around campus called the "Harding Bazaar" where crafty people can buy a booth and sell their crafts! So of course I jumped on that, giving myself even more things to do...I've knitted two coffee mug cozies, I'm thinking of making a cowl, and I'm going to bring lots of patterns and books for people to look through so they can order things. I mean, that's how most stuff is done right? Made-to-order!

I'll post some pictures of things I've made sometime soon. When I can breathe. Ja ne!
