Happy New Year
Today is the first day of my new year. It was overwhelming and exciting all at the same time. I usually start any new teaching endeavor dressing pretty conservatively and hiding the tattoos. Then, I give my staff a couple of weeks to get to know me before they get to know the fashion (and tatted me). This is my conservative outfit. I ended up having to forget the no tattoos rule, as it was really hot in the media center where I spent most of my day.
So, I was driving home today and I realized that three major things are impacted every time I embark on a new life change. The first is that I consume more wine (to calm the nerves); second, I buy more clothing (to make me feel better); third, I almost always get a tattoo (also, to make me feel better, but in that "hurts so good way").
I've been nursing a glass of wine for the past couple of days, I've purchased eight new dresses, and I'm planning on getting a new tattoo as soon as I can make it to the tattoo parlor (friday maybe?). Needless to say, life changes are an expensive time for this girl.
