2018 Updates and Goals

Welp, here I am. Back again. Gonna try this whole blogging thing once again.
Wish me luck y'all cause I really want to do this!! I think I let it go because I harboured pipe dreams of being a YouTuber. I don't expect to have followers or anything like that but I love the idea of having an online journal that I can look back on. I think I finally excepted that I will never do a proper channel on YouTube though. My self esteem is far too bad, and I'm far too ugly to go through with it. I've tried. I can't do it, so I'll just blog instead. Hopefully these blog sites don't go under cause I really love being able to look back at memories.


Industrial Piercing Update:
It's fine. Like there's really nothing to report. I did the soaks for like a month, then every so often if it got hit or something, I'd have to do it again cause it wasn't healed fully. But I change jewelery whenever now and it seems fine.

Life Update:
I still share a duplex with my boyfriend and kids, while my (still legal) husband and his mom live in the other half. As we are all cordial, this is a very awkward living situation and I still dream of my own home. (Which I have been since I moved in this house at age 13 lol)

2018 GOALS 

Body Mod Goals:
*I want to start stretching my lobes. The goal is to get to a 0g. I'm currently at 16g and it's a long process so I doubt I'll get completely to my goal during 2018, but I hope to be as close as healthily possible.
*I'd like to get the second holes in my lobes redone. They were originally done at Walmart when I was like 15ish and have been partly closed and have a weird little lump in them ever since. This was before I knew better and to go to a professional piercer.
*I want a memorial tattoo for my hero (only dad I've ever had passed in June 2017)
*I want to finish my half sleeve on my left arm.
*I want to do my left hand (I have a top of hand and a finger tattoo in mind)
*It would be nice to update/fix my foot tattoo
*I'd love to do another Friday the 13th flash tattoo

Life Goals:
*Get a car in our name. (I currently have a van that was bought for me but I fear it will be taken away from me, long story)
*Get a house. (I'm realistic. I don't want anything huge or fancy, just something I can call my own)
*Go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Personal Goals:
*Start and stick to a skincare routine. I'm not a spring chicken and need to take care of myself.
*Keep this blog extremely current.
*Complete THIS LIST

Industrial Bar Week 1 & 2

So I'm gonna post Weekly Updates, as I feel that will be the best way to keep all this organized. I'll also be sure to include pics cause that is what I would wanna see.
 Sunday Mar 5, 2017
*Made up my solution and the plan was to soak my ear in it for 5-10 minutes but it wasn't working for me so I ended up just soaking a cotton pad (got these at Sally's for $2.50, but saw them at Wal*Mart as well) in the solution and laying it on my ear for 5-10 minutes. It was probably closer to 10 minutes.
My Cleaning Method 
My cleaning solution (click for more)
soak on cotton pad, place on piercing for 5-10 minutes
Dip Qtip in solution and get around the sites and any crevices
soak another cotton pad in warn water to rinse 
This method will be used upon wakeup and bedtime for 2 weeks. Then I have another plan.
Also, midday I will wash my hands really well with antibacterial soap and do a full turn and push the bar up a lil and down a lil. never spending more than a minute messing with it. I really shouldn't have to say this, but please be sure to wash your hands VERY well before touching your piercing.


I did this for 2 weeks. I was going to take pics everyday and post them, but I honestly saw no point. They all look exactly the same, My ear was a little sore, and I am learning to sleep on my left side as long as I hold my arm in a way to create a hole for my ear to rest in as there is still a lil bit of pressure if I lay on it, but really I don't have any real update. So far so good 😀

Dear Junkie's Wife,

(My reply to THIS)

You call me the Judgy Facebook Lady and I will accept that title. Not because I like to be called judgy but because I keep it real.
Now you ask if you deserve sympathy and I say absolutely. It is not your fault your husband was a junkie, but I refuse to give sympathy to someone that did this to theirself. I see time and time again people are defending their family or friend because they had this "terrible addiction" and it was "this terrible disease that won". No. The person was a fucking junkie and they gave their life to a fucking drug. It was a CHOICE. Yes, I know that you can become physically dependant, but unless someone is holding a gun to your head making you "just try it" that first time, it was your CHOICE. If you get hooked after that it is still YOUR FAULT. Its not a "disease". No one wakes up and says "I'm having a bad day or life, I think I'll try a lil Cancer to get through that day." No, you put on your big girl or big boy panties and deal with it or deal with the consequences, If I get drunk to drown my pain should I not have to deal with the consequences of what I do while drunk?
People like to say "oh you don't know what led them to it", true I do not know. What I do know is that I have been dealt a very shitty hand in life and could write several Lifetime Movie scripts on my fucked up story but I know better than to turn to drugs. It takes a very weak minded individual to turn to drugs and I know better. So yes, sorry not sorry to anyone I offend but it is weak minded people that turn to drugs.
That being said, I am also not just blissfully ignorant to the junkie's plight either. I know past and current users. Yes, That's right. Go back and read that sentence again. I said "PAST", Did you catch that? I also said "KNOW" as in they aren't fucking dead! They knew they fucked up in their personal moment of weakness and GOT HELP. Why? Because they wanted to. You can get better. You just have to want it.
So yes, I will continue to "judge" and get pissed off when I see Narcan being handed out like free candy on Halloween because it's bullshit. People can't wakeup and say "Oh I think allergies sound cool, I'll take a shot of peanut allergy please, oh don't worry if I go into shock, Epipens are given away on the street corner" they are truly suffering and some can't even afford their MEDICINE while junkies are able to do their heroin and get free help? No. Would you be singing this tune if your husband ODed in a car and ran over a child? Or if a stranger ODs and kills your child? No, you'd be devastated and curse said junkie. Don't make excuses because you loved him. Call a thing a thing. Your husband was a junkie and needed to WANT help.
If I decide tomorrow "Oh I wanna try heroin and see if its really all this and that" and got addicted then it would be my fault and I wouldn't expect anyone to make excuses for me either.

Industrial Piercing: Night 1 & Cleaning Solution

So I just got my industrial bar at around 7:30pm, if you are curious as to how that went click HERE. I was out and about for a few more hours before I got home. (We went to Sally's beauty, out to dinner, etc) For the first 2 hours after getting my piercing, I'd say it went back and forth between a throbbing and a squeezing type of pressure. It wasn't too painful or anything really, just a noticeable sensation in my ear. Moreso on the top piercing. The lower one was decently fine. I didn't really feel anything out of that one. The cold air blowing on it, however, was a bit harsh. Going out side as I went from car to location was no fun, and I had to cup my hand over my ear. This is pretty common for me though as my ears are crazy sensitive to wind anyway so this wasn't anything extra I had to do.
Cleaning Solution
I was finally able to be home and settled enough to clean my piercing around 12:30-1am. I have decided to use the following solution to clean my piercing: 1/2 teaspoon sea salt to 8oz of hot water. I didn't measure. I simply put about half teaspoon sea salt (Got this at Wal*Mart for $4) into my teaspoon measuring spoon, then grabbed a small mason jar and filled it with hot water and stirred until it dissolved. Next I soaked a couple Qtips and went around my 4 sites and cleaned up the bar a bit. There's discomfort in doing this but the worst part is turning the bar. I tried to do at least 2 or 3 full turns so crusties don't get too bad on the bar, and I knew I bled a fair amount and wanted to clean that as much as I could tolerate. Major rule to any piercing is to not play with it or mess with it too much.
And of course, here are a few pics so you can get a lil visal of what I'm dealing with thus far 😃
1st Cleaning
Night 1 
Since this is on my left ear, I can only sleep on my right side. Don't even think about rolling over. I only attempted to roll over once and instantly my ear said "Nope, turn your ass back over. " It was like a painful alarm that refused movement. (I have a very bad back, so I am quite used to my body yelling at me and not allowing me to make my own decisions though) Again, it wasn't too bad. Just a quick reminder to roll over and it was fine. First night went well overall, I'd say.
