Sleeve Update: I wanna see your…

I’ve thought some more about my sleeve (#14 of my “30 Before 30” list). I’ve talked to my boss at work about it and he doesn’t think it will be an issue. It is a conservative office and he’s suggested I ease the old fogies into it by starting at the top and gradually building it out. I’ll also need to keep it covered during board meeting and stuff. I kind of think that’s super lame, and he agrees with me, but I’m not out to start a revolution. You’ve got to ease people into this sort of thing. I’ve already got the shaved head and bad sense of style. I don’t need to draw any more attention to myself. 8P

I’d posted a list before, about some ideas I had for said sleeve. I figure we can start with the Edison bulb, since it will look good on its own. I believe those are called shoulder caps? It’s not going to be a half-sleeve, which would go all the way down to my elbow. It can be hidden by almost all shirt sleeve. I’m so excited!!

I’ve also found a quote…I originally heard it on Criminal Minds (don’t judge) and it really stuck with me:

Sarah’s quotes

“Tomorrow you promise yourself will be different, yet tomorrow is too often a repetition of today.”— James T. McCay

One of my favorite Bible verses has always been Romans 7:15 & 18-20:

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do…For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do – this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

And this is just a shorter, less confusing way to say it. I want to shorten it even more to simply “Be Different”. Kind of a reminder to me to always strive toward being a better version of myself. Which is actually my #30! So, yeah. I want to add that, maybe in Round 2: The Half-Sleeve. But I’ve gotten WAY off-topic. This has so far had nothing to do with peacocks, and for that I apologize. The world needs more peacocks. *insert terrible peacock scream here*

I’ve changed my mind in regards to getting a giraffe. I want a peacock instead. I already have a giraffe on my ribs. He just needs some TLC. And I think a peacock will be pwetty. 8} That’s all this post was supposed to say, I swear.


Tell me how you REALLY feel:
