Yesterday I gave myself the day off from school (the only class I had was my gym class, so I missed my workout) because I wanted to get two tattoos since it was 11/11/11.
The first one behind my right ear is an asterisk. Andrew McMahon, lead singer of two of my favorite bands (Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin) is my hero. Back in 2005, he found out he had leukemia, underwent two rounds of chemo, radiation therapy, and a successful stem cell transplant from his sister. He's now cancer free. He's an amazing person and one of the sweetest, most inspiring musicians I've ever met. He uses an asterisk in all of Jack's Mannequin's album art, which is why I got an asterisk. Also, in my favorite Something Corporate song, he makes a reference to 11:11, which is why I thought it was appropriate to get the tattoo on 11/11/11!
The second one behind my left ear is a lightning bolt. Basically, I got this because I love Harry Potter. I grew up with the series and films, and I am part of the Harry Potter generation. Also, J.K. Rowling is an amazing woman. The books are so much more than just about magic, witches and wizards. They're about the power of love, bravery, hope; so I got a lightning bolt to represent that (because of Harry's lightning bolt scar) Yesterday, the last Harry Potter film came out on DVD, so again, I felt it was appropriate to get this.
AAAAND I finally fit into my size 4 skinny jeans that I bought over the summer! HELL YEAH!
