Summer, Tattoos, & No Dating

So I have finished finals, and I am officially done with my junior college *throws confetti* Now all I need to do is wait for my grades so I can order my transcript and give it to the university. But what have I been doing since summer has officially started for me? Well, yesterday was a Degrassi marathon and I have been watching The Tudors. So the start of my summer is chill, I am also working out again! *does happy dance*

If anything, this summer will be mostly filled with me stretching my ears and getting my tattoos. My mom is already tired of my angel bites and wanted me to take them off. I convinced her to let me keep them though because I told her that I am doing good, I got accepted into the university, I don't have a bf, I'm not pregnant...the least she could do is let me have my piercings. Piercings don't make a person bad. When I told her I could be in my ex bf's wife's shoes about having a 2 year old and being married to my ex and barely starting college she decided to let me keep them lol. I told her, if anything the piercings would scare away the guys and she liked the idea more haha.

I swear, her worst fear is any of us getting a boyfriend and getting pregnant. She always says how guys are so much trouble and aren't worth it. To an extent I agree, that's why I don't have or want a boyfriend. I feel like it's too much work and if I had to pick school or a boyfriend, I'd pick school. Or studying abroad or a boyfriend, I'd pick studying abroad. A boyfriend is not my priority.

I am not the way I want to be looks wise, I want to have most of my body mods for when I do decide to get a bf. I get so tired of when guys try to get to know me and find out I want tattoos they look at me like "O___o you want tattoos?" or "I don't really think a lot of tattoos look good on girls...." or, or, even better "You know most guys don't like girls with a lot of tattoos..." and there I am looking at them with a poker face. Well it's a good thing I'm not getting tattoos to get guys now, isn't it? My God, guys are so ego-centric! Thinking everything a girl does is to get a guy -__-

I could go on about this forever, but I'll just stop now haha. Oh, and Hannah tagged me so I might as well do that while I'm here. I don't think I'll do the 11 facts about me since I have done this tag before but I will answer her questions^^

Finals and Stretching My Ears

Around 2 more weeks left of school, give or take. I am so freakin' excited to get out of my junior college, such a hassle. Lately I've been busy studying for finals and finishing up on final presentations and papers so I haven't had time to do anything. My old laptop (the HP one) ended up dying on me while making a video for my presentation. I had to use my little sister laptop to download Sony Vegas Pro and finish the video and then use my older sister's laptop to type the rest of my paper as well as do things for my other classes. Just my luck -___- I managed to get the stuff done though, and that's what counts!

In other news, on my Twitter I have been talking about stretching my ears. I had been debating for a while, but once I got serious about me doing it that's when I voiced it. Needless to say, my sisters freaked out. I think when people think of stretching their ears they think about the people the stretch it a lot. I am not planning on stretching it big at all. Maybe 1/2" (12mm)? If I remember the size correctly lol. The point is, it's not going to be big. I just started the stretching process last night. I would take a picture to show but I started small, and the taper is transparent so there really is nothing to see right now lol. I'll probably actually post a photo when I get to an 8g. It won't be for a while though, because I will be taking it slow since I don't want to mess up my ears.

These are the tapers that I am going to stretch to next, the size is clearly still small so you can only imagine the ones I have in my ears now lol. The ones in the photo are a 10g (2.4mm). For those who wanted to know the pain, it's not bad at all. I didn't even feel it when I put them in. Make sure you do it after you take a shower or as my piercer suggested, in the shower. The go in easier when they are wet. Going to wait at least 2 weeks before I go up a size. Have to do the whole process of soaking in salt water again OTL

I'm pretty sure my mom is not going to be happy at all when she finds out I'm stretching my ears. But I doubt she'll notice lol. She didn't notice when I got my second or third hole pierced in my ears, so I doubt she would notice the stretching especially since I am not going to go big so I'll just tell her it's a earring since I have earrings that remind me of plugs. That is what started this whole stretching notion to begin with. -shrugs- we'll see lol

Acceptance into My Dream University

Four posts in the last month?? That is horrible, lol. I have been super busy with school, and to be honest I wasn't planning on making a blog entry because I am so packed. I should be working on my Philosophy presentation that is due Thursday...but I wanted to record this moment. I don't really talk much about my school life besides complaining lol, but I am currently at a junior college and recently applied to the university I always wanted to go to, and believe it or not...I got into UC Irvine!!

I was seriously so shocked, because never in my life did I think I would get into a UC. I didn't get the best grades in high school, partially because I already knew I was going to a junior college and the other part because I sucked at math and would fail so horribly lol. I just saw myself settling for going to a junior college and transferring to a Cal-State (not that there is anything wrong with one just that I didn't really care for them). Heck, before I would settle for an AA and not get my BA! WTF was I thinking?? I seriously didn't see myself doing better. It wasn't until I saw the Cal-States and realized that I didn't want to go to any of them. My older sister went to UCI and convinced me to check it out. So, I did and I ended up loving it. I set my heart on going there. I remember when I first told my mom she freaked out because she didn't think I could do it. My older sister was the one person who supported me from the beginning. Of course, once my mom saw how serious I was that is when she began to support me.

It's going to be hard work, but I am going to make sure I do all I can to live up my uni life and that includes good grades! lol :] Now I can study Japanese in an actual classroom! No longer self studying :D and not to mention, I can finally get everything together to study abroad ;A; I hope this happiness doesn't leave anytime soon.

Time to cross this off my bucket-list :DD
