On the “get to know me sheets” I have my class do on the first day I ask them to draw me a random picture on the back. Here’s this year’s winner - me and my Peer Advisor leading class!

My DC Ragnar legs. 

Need to bump up my training milage over the next 2 weeks to feel completely ready. 

I’m pretty sure my dream broadway role would be Hedwig, the rousing performance of Origin of Love I did repeatedly on my drive to work this morning supports this theory! 


Also I mean I AM obsessed with Drag Queen make-up and glitter!

Why are there so many tattoos now? Some of it is clearly a statement of individuality, or a love of art, symbol and story. But those of us who wonder should remember that while a few are tattooed for shock value, many are just using their bodies to tell us stories, to share emotions. They’re wearing their pain, their loss, their hopes, their values, their dreams and fantasies Great post from a Doctor about the popularity of tattoos http://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2014/08/consider-messages-tattoos-sending.html
