The past view months have not been fun. I quit one job and gained another. We started looking for a new apartment in August and were not moving until December. I worked midnights at this new job and I was so stressed and exhausted that I lost 15lbs. Not cool.
Things are getting a little better now. I have ignored this blog for a long time and I’m going to try and get back to it in the New Year. Ill be in a new place, in a new city and hopefully I will be feeling better.
I need a fresh start.
I have reading goals for 2019 and art goals and work goals and travel goals and I hope I can keep up the momentum and get shit done.
So heres my small update. More for myself then others I guess. Because no really reads this thing anyway.
This month I got two tattoos!
Because when I feel like crap I torture my skin to make myself feel better.
First one is a bunny-fish, or Bish for short. This is one of Koree’s original drawings. Tracy named her Fiona. She’s real pretty. My foot kept falling asleep. That was the worst part about this one. ugh. And I’m pretty sure I kicked Koree when my leg twitched. Oops.
Next up is my little axolotl. He’s super cute and was named Abbott. ha! Lana is so great. I love it!
June’s theme was sports! I’m not in to sports, literally at all. But they’re still cute!
July’s theme was Hawaii! How cute are these?!
July was a busy busy month for book collecting! If only I had read more. Gah!

I subscribe to Hey Atlas Creative and Bibliophile Prints on Patreon for the month of May.
Hey Atlas Creative “Big Atlas” reward is a 4×6 print and a matching sticker.
Bibliophile Prints “Book Lover” reward is a bookmark. At the end of June she closed her Patreon so these are the last two bookmarks I received.
