The Balance of Letting It Go.


I had a situation happen today. Nothing dramatic. In fact, it was quite minuscule compared to most actual, real-life problems, but it still bothered me.

You see, I have a friend with whom I share lots of quips with back and forth on a daily basis.

I have a few tattoos, seven to be exact. In fact, I am trying to work my way to get a full sleeve on my left arm. And what with most of my tattoos being quite visible, and me supposedly being ‘not the type of girl that would get tattoos’, I often get questions about them.
