Confession: I'm a tatted up, bibliophilic punk rocker.

I really enjoy creating playlists from my favorite music each week, my Tuesday Music Mix, but yesterday was just not having it.  Really though.  I was at work all day, ya know, working and stuff, then out to dinner with Jon and when I got home I was up until two am finishing some homework that was just a couple days late.
Obviously I had wayyyy more time for watching the Belgium vs US game then I did for getting on blogging.  Sue me.

BTW, right on Tim Howard.

So because I love my music, and my brain is completely fried today even after three cups of coffee, I'm posting my playlist today instead of yesterday.

I'm a rebel, I know.  Don't have to tell me twice.

Song list:
"Elevated" by State Champs
"Soul & Body" by Air Dubai
"Loose Ends" by Real Friends
"Adelaide" by Anberlin
"A Call To Arms" by Bayside
All of these songs are from artists playing at this year's Warped Tour.  I'm really damn sad that I can't go this year but I play the compilation CD in the car, close my eyes and pretend that I'm there, surrounded by the pungent smell of pot and rubbed on by sweaty dudes in sleeveless shirts.
Sigh.  A girl can dream.


Today I'm also linking up again with Vodka and Soda for Humpday Confessions.  I don't have anything crazy vulnerable to put out there like last week, but here it goes.

I confess...

...that I loathe, dread, hate homework but, dude, I get so freakin' excited to do the science experiments for my bio class.
Last night I bounced in to the living room to show Jon the status of my egg experiment, which was an egg soaked in vinegar, karo syrup and coffee for about a week, and all he could do was yell at me, "Ew!  Why the hell are you touching it with your bare hands?".  Hater.  What he didn't understand was that it might be an a gross egg but it was a really cool gross egg.

...that I often I would rather sink in to the couch and read then leave the house to actually do stuff.  Such is the life of an addict.

...that I didn't do my homework on time this weekend and covered by telling my teacher that I had trouble with my Internet.

...that I reeaallly want a full sleeve of tattoos but am too scared of what other people will think, especially possible employers.  Would I be able to get a job?  What if I can't cover them up?  I stare jealously at other peoples' tattoos but don't have the balls to get another one for myself.


What are your humpday confessions?
Would you go for the sleeves?  Do you even like tattoos?  Do you even go to this school?  (10 pts for whoever knows what movie that's from!)

Linking up with Vodka and Soda.
Check out previous weeks' music mixes here.


  1. Personally I'm not crazy about tattoo sleeves but that may be because I ridiculously weak when it comes to pain :( If you can cover them then it should be fine and perhaps you'll have a trendy boss who'll one day appreciate them... who knows, right?

  2. 100 points for using a Mean Girls reference LOL

    I want a sleeve and lots of tatts but cant bc I am a *wannabe* teacher. Im sure thats frowned upon by principals of elementary schools LOL

  3. Ahh, the life of a book addict :) I'm awful chincy about tattoos too. I don't care what other people think, but I always consider it when it comes to employers. That's a biggy for me too!

  4. Reading is definitely usually a better option than anything else!

  5. I want a half sleeve because I can't commit (nor have the dollars for) a full sleeve. I'm worried about how it will look in a wedding dress (when did I become this girl?), but with a half I could cover it with sleeves and I'm cold-natured, so it wouldn't be surprising.

    I read on the elliptical at the gym and that is 85% of my motivation for going. Although I'm currently reading Insurgent and anytime Tris says "Okay" to Four, I get confused that Augustus is missing after watching The Fault in Our Stars. #moviesruinbooks

  6. Have you seen the Tim Howard save hashtag? It's pretty much gold. Also, I would've loved to see a picture of that gross/cool egg. As for the sleeves, maybe start with a few small ones that can be covered up and see if you are comfortable with more? I've been wanting to get one too, but on a part of my body that is easier to cover up.

    Another Beautiful Thing

  7. Ahh I would love to get a sleeve of tattoos! The thing about tattoos though, is that no matter what, people will judge you. And let's face it, we aren't going to look like a super hot tatted girl forever. We'll be the old lady that was rumored to have killed someone and got her tattoos done in prison. I have a couple tattoos right now and still do want to get a few more, but just not where it's super noticeable or will make me feel weird when I get older. How about just a half-sleeve? At least you'd be able to wear shirts and jackets to cover up your shoulders and arms at work.

  8. my husband has 2 full sleeves and he's a highly respected associate director at work. the CIO and SVP don't even bat an eye to his tats. they're not as taboo as people think. hell, even one of the SVPs here is completely covered in tats - even his neck!!

    thanks for linking up

  9. I think tattoos are awesome, however not sure that they're for me. Maybe one day though!
