One more orange down!

Tattooed another orange today, and touched up my ankle tattoo two days ago...

St. Patrick's Day was surprisingly really slow at the bar, but we have a Pub Crawl this weekend and business should pick up.

I am planning to come home for Easter, so make time for me! :) Gotta head home from the shop to get ready for work at the bar tonight... working 4 days a week at the bar and 6 days a week at the shop is starting to take its toll on me... but I'm doin' ok.

The bar is improving...more business and I am leaving with decent tips every night. Bills are being covered, which rocks, AND my brainchild is taking form.

What brainchild you ask? Well, I (meaning DICE Bar & Lounge) am throwing a Wonderland Party... Alice in Wonderland themed drinks and hookah specials and even little cookies that say "Eat Me" from an amazing bakery downtown called AmyCakes.

I designed the flyer and its going to be handed out started Monday:

Big steps.

Yesterday I tattooed a pair of oranges. The rind is supposed to mimic the way human skin takes ink, but it didn't seem to, in my opinion. I got fairly good with the oranges, and I am doing a couple more today. Then I touch up my ankle tattoo that I did a few weeks ago, finish the "Mayhem" tattoo on our piercer Misty, and 8 more good tattoos. Once I reach that point, I get to start tattooing actual customers, which means money in my pocket!

I am moving forward! Still able to pay my rent, been living pretty frugally, but I am comfortable.

May or may not be coming home for Easter, still trying to figure that out.

It has been a long but relatively uneventful week. I had a meeting at Dice (the downtown bar I work part time at) yesterday and everyone ate sushi.... the boss bought it, reaaaaally expensive sushi. I had rice... lol...

Been bonding with a couple people from the shop, Misty, our piercer, is absolutely crazy, but awesome.

Ryan, one of artists in the shop..well...fits the same description of Misty, haha..

I desperately need to do laundry, but I have no time to do it. The laundry facility here is closed when I get off of work. Oh well...
