1 Man, 2 Man, 3 Man, Blueman

The other night I had the wonderful oppurtunity to go see the Blueman Group in concert. I have heard of the group but I did not really know what to expect. It was an amazing show! I would definately go see it again. Kevin, my ex-boyfriend now friend, got 4 tickets from his parents for his birthday and invited 2 of his cousins, a girl from work, and myself. I knew one of his cousins from high school and hadn't seen him in awhile so it was nice to catch up with him. The opener for Blueman Group was an artist I wasn't sure I was going to like but I really did get into it. Her name is Tracy Bonham. I suggest checking out the website; listen to some of her songs.

Well, soccer is almost over. Tomorrow is our last game and it will be rough. It will be a fight but hopefully we can hold our own. I'm going to miss soccer and I'm going to miss my team but there is a part of me that is glad the season is over. Maybe it is because I know basketball will then start but ... I can't really explain it. Maybe I just need a break. Whatever it is, the season is soon over and that is simply how it goes. Overall, our season we decent. Not great but we made improvement and that is great. I really anticipate next year to really rock our field. I mean, we are going to have a lot of returners and we finally have our own field! Awesome!

Well, I should be doing homework so I'll see you all later!

Here it is!

Well, I did it! I got inked. I know my last post says it was gonna go down on Sunday but it actually went down on Wednesday (a week ago). The Inferno had a game Wednesday late afternoon so after that and a quick stop at the mall for mom, 2 of my friends and me went to Wild Rose and got this thing done. I went in with an idea (a cross with my grandpa's innitials; he passed away about 4 years ago) and the dude drew this up. It is what I wanted and I love it. The guy was great. While drawing up the idea I was discribing he was joking around with my friends and me. A real laid back biker guy with a story. He took us back and did his thing. I was a little nervous but more so because of my friends. They had me psyched for the worst and were acting strange. Each of my friends have a few tattoos already and they had me pegged for a weakling or something because they thought I wasn't going to make it without tears or asking for a break. It honestly did not hurt as bad as I thought it was going to. It did hurt but it was ok. The upper part hurt more that the bottom. They say once you get one you need more; I haven't decided yet. That's not to say I don't have ideas...

On my way to the library tonight to meet with a group from one of my classes I couldn't help but notice that I was almost sweating. "Why were my muscles tired? Why was I practically running?" was going through my head. I'm in no hurry. Why do I rush through life? I didn't even really want to be at the meeting but I couldn't ditch cuz that would be rude. Anyway... I'm gonna slow it down a bit I think. I have a really full semester and I'm going one place right after the other but that doesn't mean I have to run there. (Unless I'm late for class, then I'll be book'n my @$$ to get there.) So I did just that. I stopped, took a deep breath and slowed my trot to a walk. It was nice and I wasn't exhausted upon arrival.

Well, Sunday is the day! I plan on getting my (first) tattoo on Sunday evening. I'm nevous/excited. I've been wanting one for a few years now and I've thought about it and I really do want to go through with it. My mom is gonna flip but hey, I'm her daughter, I'm allowed to be the reason she flips, right? I'll post a picture after I'm done so you can all see! (Thank you "Diabetic Princess" for the feedback!)

I didn't die... really.

Well well well... It has certanly been awhile hasn't it? I apologize for my absance; with soccer, class, homework, and work I barely have time to sleep. Unfortunatly, that is more often the case than I hoped going into this year. I have already slept through 2 1/2 classes! (I am a VERY sound sleeper-I slept through 2 alarms and 4 missed calls!) The other night I only got 40 min of sleep. I think I really filled my plate this semester. I'm gonna keep truck'n through though. I know I can do it, it's just going to be harder than I thought it would be. It isn't all bad though. I had a paper due last week and I got it back saying I did an amazing job! Soccer is going very well I'm pleased to say. The Inferno is currently 4-6-1 which is better than past years. We won our first conference game (ever) on Saturday! This is our third year in a conference and we have won games before but this was our first conference win. It was a great feeling! All the hard work is so worth it when your team wins. "Nothing like game day." This week is Homecoming Week and there is a lot going on. Monday kicked off the week with a pep rally and staffulty vs student/alum volleyball game, Tuesday was our Homecoming game! It was an amazing game. We tied but... oh it was an excellent game. Today is the new field dedication. Super exciting! On the diabetic side of things everythings been going good. My blood has been in better control than I thought it would be and I'm feeling great. I should be eating a little healthier and I'm trying to. It's hard but so is life and that's what I'm playing for so it's definatly worth it. A bit of a damper though, I was at the doctor's a little under a month ago and it wasn't even an appointment! I went there for my 11:00 appointment and got in around 12:00. Then, he looked at my numbers, said we weren't going to be changing anything and that I did not need blood work and sent me out! I wanted to ask a question and he shoed me out crazy fast! What the flip is that about? Oh well, our insurance is changing so I'll have to get a new doctor anyway. The question was-maybe you can help-I want to get a tattoo... Now I know there are millions and millions of people reading this (ya, right) freaking out at me saying this-esp. those who know I'm infection prone. I know the risk is there but I wanted to know how severe they were. I know piercings are more of a risk (and I learned the hard way) but I still know the risks are good that bad things can happen. I just want some feedback. I know control is important too and I'm really being diligent to control my levels and what I eat. So... What do you reading this think? Should I ask my doctor, live on the edge and do it, or... help me out.
