Well, bad thing is - my internet is down so I’m using my phone and it’s a lot slower and much more difficult. I have some things to say so this may take a bit.
You’ve noticed my recent ink I assume. Well, my parents don’t know. But, offhandedly I asked my mom what she thought of tattoos. I was hoping for a “I don’t like them, but I don’t care.” of course that’s too simple- my mom is inventive. She ended up talking about how they are like a devil’s mark and how misfortune befalls those that try to get rid of it, etc. Well. That’s hard to work with. I don’t know about many here but I’ve always been the type to please my parents whether it’s with personal accomplishments or school accomplishments. But I’ve always wanted them to be proud and its hard knowing not only will they not accept it but they won’t be proud or anything. And that simple truth kind of stings even if I dont feel regretful enough to get rid of it.
I wish I could say more but I’m falling asleep so I will do so later.
