Let me start off this post with a note to my parents: No, I didn’t go get a tattoo without telling you.
I’m fascinated by tattoos, but I don’t think I would ever actually get one. Nothing against tattoos at all – it’s just that for someone like me, who has trouble putting stickers on her laptop without thinking it over for approximately 3 years, the idea of getting something permanently inked into my skin is kinda terrifying. I have so much respect for people who have the commitment to get tattoos, but I’ll stick with wristbands and pins, thanks.
Still, sometimes I wonder if I absolutely had to get a tattoo, what would I get? What’s something that’s so important to me that I would want it with me for the rest of my life? I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, and I’ve decided to compile it in a “tattoo wishlist” – one I’ll never act on, but a wishlist nonetheless.
I know most of my regular posts are on the more upbeat side of things, or are at least thought-provoking but never very serious. However, every once in a while, there’s something I want to talk about that requires a more serious tone.
Yesterday (September 10) was a day that’s very important to me: World Suicide Prevention Day. In light of that, I’d like to reflect on this topic of suicide, depression, and mental health, since this is something I care about deeply and I feel like I haven’t given it enough attention as of late.
I hope you all had a great week! Mine was pretty good: as I mentioned last Friday, I went to go see Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them with some friends, and I really enjoyed it! I actually didn’t end up going to the board game night like I planned, though – a friend of mine invited me to her house for dinner, so I did that instead, which was just as fun.
Oh, and I’m feeling better too! (Knock on wood.) After taking all kinds of cold medicine and whatnot, I think I’m finally back to my regular self. I still have a bit of a cough, but I’m feeling much better than I was.
And I finished the introverts/extroverts series this week with Introverts for Extroverts! Thanks again to everyone who helped me, it means a lot!
Curious about what I’ve been doing the rest of the week? Read on!
