I haven't been very active around here lately.
Been dealing with some stuff on the homefront. Still struggling to find a job and whatnot, but hey! It's not all bad. I've gotten a girlfriend now so I got that going for me.
I'm also slowly adding to my arm, though my money is disappearing faster than I am adding haha.

iggy:
I hope everything on the home front is going okay! And congrats on the lady friend! She's one lucky gal!
holybasil:
@iggy Thanks! Yeah it goes as well as one can hope :)

My lip that is! Not my finger, I need to fly free.

I got a new jewelery for my lip today. Circular barbell by Industrial Strength. Internally threaded of course. Unusual, but I’ll get used to it.
Purchased at Pinpoint - Oslo, Norway.

Love getting new piercing jewelry. Looks great :)

For those that are unaware. The 17th of May is Norway's independence day. This means parades all day long, alcohol for those wanting that and jolly celebration.

Definitely @arroia! It's a lot of fun to head downtown and see all the children schools march through the city and to the front of the Castle. Like this:

I figured I'd just post a small thing about what's going on in my life for those that may find it of interest. And it's just a good feeling to get all your thoughts on paper every once in a while.

I'll just start with my love life first, it's the shortest section so easy to finish. Hahhahaha... I'm...

Ahhh the FWB trap. Either it's great, or it's just fucking awkward. Don't yet discount the person you're talking to online. Perhaps her pictures don't do her justice? Perhaps you'll meet and find her more attractive? I've met people online that I thought I'd fall head over heels for and ended up not liking them at all and I've met people that I was luke warm about and ended up falling hard for them. 
holybasil:
@iggy I definitely shouldn't rule it out, no. I think it's just because I have a preconceived notion of what I'm looking for. I'll do my best to suppress that thought though! I'm actually meeting her later today, so we'll she how it all turns out.

I'm sure many of you are up to lots of exciting stuff. I know a lot of people around me are doing fun things, like a holiday to Istanbul. Metal festival that is 3 days of non-stop metal and drinking (I was there last year). Lots of ski resort and cabin trips. And there's the odd duck that decides to power through by

@kaicito Normally I would relish the time of nothing same as you, but being unemployed as made me quite restless. I need to stay active and not just laze around at home all day :) Enjoy the sightseeing though!
kaicito:
I'm currently (tho unhappily) employed, but I've been there, so I know how that feels. Good luck finding something!

So, I was feeling sick and tired so I figured I'd order pizza, I go to pick it up.
Turns out I got a large one instead of a small one. I figured "sweet! they made a mistake and I reap the benefits".

BUT! When I get home and get set to eat it, what do I see when I open the box. A...

So, sort of on a whim, but not really since I've thought about it for a bit was that on this tuesday I decided to get my frenum pierced.
If you do not know what the frenum is then you can google it, but be aware the results will be nsfw. Not that you should even be on SG when you're at work...

First off, good weekend everyone. I hope you're having a good time and hopefully you're not too drunk. Nor sober for that matter.

What is this blog going to be about? Why the progress I got done to my leg on thursday. Like I've mentioned earlier there is still LOTS to do, but now we got the entire background above the knee...

My artist managed to squeeze me in for a small session on thursday. I'm really excited since I haven't been able to continue on my leg since march of last year due to me losing my job so tattoo money has been tight.
It's not a big session, only 4 hours and a drop in the ocean compared to what's left...

Excellent! I'd love to get another tattoo, but like you I would rather save the money I have than spend it all and risk not having it should and emergency arise.

I agree with @iggy Gotta think of the emergencies as well and peeps tend to forget that :)
