So something really awesome happened since the last time I blogged. Well, I should say two things really cool happened.
First, I am on my 2nd generation of the sims though I have 3 generations in this family. The founding father is just about to die as I am typing this (RIP Miles Lawrence). I’m not playing with the families (2 daughters) that have 1 child each. My founding mother is named Kala. In 2 more sim days she becomes an elder so it will be her and her twins Tianna and Brandie. T & B are going to take over the house after Kala dies. I’m having B take over the restaurant (currently 3 out of 5 stars) and T is going to get a job in the programming career… or whatever it is called. 1 will have a husband and the other will be gay and have a wife and the one with the husband adopts while the other has 1 child. I am only having 2 children with this 3rd generation. This is the longest I have ever played a game of the sims. Whether on 3 or 4. I’m so proud of myself. 😀
Second, I GOT A TATTOO!
If you can’t tell it is on my left wrist. No, it is not centered which bothers me a bit but I will get over it. I wanted to get something that had a heart in it. Originally I was thinking something with a heart and 5 stars around it but I couldn’t attach much meaning to that. Then 3 nights ago (right before bed) the word Love and a heart came to my head. I wrote it out on a piece of paper then I thought cursive and it came out something like this before I went to the artist:
Sorry about the picture, it is a picture I took from drawing this on our display model iPad Air 12″. Top is me writing it out. Bottom is something a coworker drew/wrote up for me. I showed this to my tattoo artist and said I wanted something like this as I didn’t want to attach the tattoo to anyone by myself because this tattoo was and is for me and me only. If I attach it to someone else and end up hating them then that will ruin the tattoo for me. Hence the particular attachments.
Anyway, I was talking to my artist. For reference, I went to Fat Cat Tattoo & Body Piercing. I am about to review them on yelp. The guy that tattooed me has been doing it for 14 years and told me that he was hoping I wasn’t going to have him do what I came in with. As I asked him if he had ever done tattoos that he, personally, disliked. While I like the design that I made, I’m glad I got something almost completely different from that. I had a really good experience there and with tip and everything the tattoo costed $68. I don’t believe that is too bad.
That is unless you want to include the $200 in clothes I spent for new pants, socks, bras and shirts to cover up my tattoo. Then it was close to $300. Hahahaha. I bought too many pants but I need them for work!
Lastly, I did my first “bad” thing. I work tomorrow (Saturday) from 11:30 to 8 but I was off today (Friday) and I’m off Sunday and Monday so I decided I am going to call out tomorrow. Since I only have to do it 2 hours prior I am going to call at 9 or 9:30 and call out. It will be worth it as my first time having 4 days off in a row in a few months and I am so stressed out. This is the last time (3rd) I will call out until I get a new job.
I should have an in-person interview with Suntrust Bank right around the corner from my work. Other than that I am still applying for jobs but I’m not sure how that will go with my tattoo. Though I have my shirts, never know how there tattoo policy is.
Push comes to shove I still have Best Buy and my IT career will be fine with it. I won’t call out again at BBY for at least 6 months so it is fine. I just want to leave before the holidays so that I can go home during the holidays. Spending it at home was depressing last year. </3
Well, that’s all I’ve got!
P.S. I pled for Miles’ life and he was brought back for now. Looks like he has another day or so and then he will die of old age again. LOL Also, I have renewed my VPS for longer SIMPLY for the ability to practice ruby on rails and coding on a dedicated platform. I may still host people but for now I’m not.
