I have lived in Minnesota now for 12 years, I had no intention of staying after I graduated but ended up getting a great job and just did. One thing that I will never get used to is the way that Minnesotans give directions, It’s on the southwest corner of where the Ace Hardware that was torn down in 1972 was located which is kitty corner to what used to be Dayton’s. Oh, but you weren’t here when Dayton’s existed. I don’t know where that is, nobody knows where that is. Just give me the cross streets or literally any currently existing landmark. I think it’s passive aggressive, no matter how long you live here – if you weren’t born here, you aren’t a Minnesotan and they’ll take the time to remind you of that. Mostly by giving you completely asinine directions and probably hoping that you get lost along the way. Thanks, I’ll Google it.
I think that I am getting a tattoo for my birthday and I am going to go real cliche and get something with my zodiac which is weird since I am not super into that stuff but it is fitting. I have been looking through Pinterest for some inspiration and here is what I am liking so far:
I hate the idea of walking into a shop and just showing them something that I printed off the internet so I might do a mash-up of a bigger one and add small details. I can draw enough to get it done. I am a little hesitant to get a full-on goat because my mother (who was a religious zealot) was convinced that the literal, modern day interpretation of Mark of the Beast was actually referring to all tattoos. Don’t ask me how she came to that conclusion but she was convinced this was the case. I am a little hesitant because goats do have roots to being a form of Satan and if my mom was right, I’d be screwed. Odd that I am not even religious and yet these superstitions still plague me. Also, aside from the horns, these look like kelpies which were thought to be demons – I better just skip the astrological aspect all together 😀 Are tattoos sacrilegious? Give me your thoughts…
Thanks for stopping by <3
