I love piercings, to an extent. I would by no means say that I am obsessed with them, however I do have 6 (which I think is a lot). I have my lobes pierced as well as my cartilage, the middle edge of my ear (also my cartilage I guess?), my rook, and most recently my frontal (forward) helix. From what I can remember, I don’t think I had any major complications with my piercings in the past, my rook took longer than expected to heal and my cartilage developed a bump that eventually went away, but other than that, nothing note worthily wrong, until now. I got my frontal helix in October and it was really tender to the touch (obviously..it’s healing) and then just recently, it started forming this bump that if I could see probably looks disgusting. It still hurts to touch and I’m running out of things to do! I’ve looked up different “home remedies” online and there was one that seemed to be coming up the most frequently. I have been doing hot saltwater soaks once a day for the past 2 or 3 days and it seems to be helping a bit! Lets hope that it starts to work better and faster…I really don’t want to take it out.

On a happier note, the Pack play today and the decision will be made whether or not we get home field advantage! Errbody out there better be cheering for the green and gold!! I mean how can you not cheer for GBP?

Packing and unpacking

One thing I absolutely hate doing is packing. I know some people find it fun to pack if they are going on a trip because oooh how exciting they’re probably going someplace warm in the winter! But no. I hate it. I am always afraid (and for a good reason) that I’m going to forget something and you know what? I’m usually right. I always forget something extremely necessary.

One time earlier this year I forgot to bring home my contacts…MY CONTACTS. That is a necessary part of my everyday life and I forgot them ah school. What an idiot. At least I had my glasses.

Anyways, I especially hate packing for longer periods of time, for example: when I go home for winter break (end of December to the end of January). That is quite a long time to try to remember everything one needs. I don’t know what I’m going to be in the mood to wear or if I’ll need fancy dress up clothes. And if I need fancy dress up clothes, what kinds? What will I be in the mood for?

Side note: I’m well aware I sound like a total girl right now but everything I’m saying is true! It’s so much more difficult for girls to pack than it is for guys. At least that’s what I’ve noticed. And I think most girls have also noticed this as well. For example: Jenna Marbles.

I don’t think I could have said it better myself. When making my trek back home, I decided to pack almost everything I own, just to be safe. On that note, happy packing everyone. Don’t forget your necessities!

Forgot I also titled this “unpacking”..shoot. Okay well if you could see my room right now, you would be able to understand what in the world I mean when I say I hate unpacking. I feel like I’m not going to be home for an extremely long period of time and unpacking/putting everything away would be a waste of time when I just have to pack it up again in a month! But then again, I can’t very well leave it laying in the middle of my floor so I can’t move around! Uhg. Dilemmas, dilemmas.

Have a wonderful night y’all. It’s raining here. ( yes, raining in December..)

Got me thinking.

Every time I say “So I was thinking…” to my mother, she comes back with “Oh no that sounds dangerous” or “Don’t hurt yourself..” and now every time I say that, mom pops into my head and makes me laugh (usually out loud too–which gets me weird looks sometimes). Anyways, something that a friend told me today got me thinking. I’ve seen this quote a couple time before and every time I see it, it makes me appreciate my life. Think about everything you have, and always be grateful, always. There are lots of people out there less fortunate than you are, be thankful for what you do have.
