the semicolon project

an excellent read! ” A semi-colon is a reminder to pause and then keep going. “

FullSizeRender-1FullSizeRender Today I went to a tattoo artist, and for $60 I let a man with a giant Jesus-tattoo on his head ink a semi-colon onto my wrist where it will stay until the day I die. By now, enough people have started asking questions that it made sense for me to start talking, and talking about things that aren’t particularly easy.

We’ll start here: a semi-colon is a place in a sentence where the author has the decision to stop with a period, but chooses not to. A semi-colon is a reminder to pause and then keep going. 

In April I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. By the beginning of May I was popping anti-depressents every morning with a breakfast I could barely stomach. In June, I had to leave a job I’d wanted since I first set foot on this campus as an incoming freshmen because of my mental…

Recently my husband and I have become involved in the Jehovah’s Witness Christian faith. This means we both acquired our own bibles. I have my favorite verses book marked, so sometimes I panic when I accidentally grab my husbands copy for a bible study. I needed a way to tell ours apart. Obviously his and her designs were exactly what I needed.

Day 50: Amish Inspired Hat

tons of patterns!! oh my! 🙂

Raising Robertsons Farts

I’m obsessed with the show Amish Mafia. I grew up in Pennsylvania. In a city. Just a short distance from Lancaster where the show takes place. I grew up around Amish culture. A few of my classmates were children of shunned Amish. And our local public high school football games would draw Amish teens in by the dozens. Such nice people. But very secretive. Wink wink. I noticed how popular black Amish style hats were becoming these days. I had to design a crocheted one(yes I already have an authentic one :/ I betrayed PA and had one sent from Indiana).
