It’s been a while since I’ve really hung on to bad feelings and let things stew. I guess I forgot about it but seeing this made me remember, it’s not really a problem anymore

How I did it: After making it a goal and waiting for years for them to come into an area where I could actually reach them and waiting to be old enough to go to a concert on my own I went to Pitchfork in Chicago this summer and finally saw them with two of my friends. Read how I did it…
How I did it: I went to a reputable and clean piercing parlour and had it done. I was so scared and I thought it would hurt but it did not. I found a lot of good websites on how to clean and take care of my new piercing and any problems by just googling "nostril piercing aftercare".

I love my bike, I love biking! But it’s getting cold and I just don’t have the money or motivation to actually buy all the gear I need to stay warm but not sweaty on my way to school. I’ve just gotten busy and I’ve been doing things after school at night too so I’ve just started driving.

I don’t want to A) get hit by a car as I’m riding home at night or B) slip on ice and get run over in the winter.
If I get a bike to keep on campus and ride it around then I’ll call this year a success and maybe try again next year.
