Ok so one of my wedding pics is getting reposted- which is a little odd.. so here is the original.
And please don’t tag us “rockabilly”. We don’t even listen to rockabilly music. Labels are restrictions.
Thanks ;) I see my High School pic is making the rounds again.
Well I actually did get kicked out of my first High School- it was an all-girls Catholic school.
My parents were actually atheists but wanted me to “get a better education” so they sent me there.
In my sophomore year I cut my hair into a bob and dyed it black. Soon after I was called into the office and told I was “too pale”. They accused me of wearing makeup. My step-dad finally had to explain to them that black was a natural hair color and that I never wore makeup ( which at the time I didn’t) and I was naturally pale. The hair color just made me seem more pale.
They let me know they didn’t want me representing their school. I was drawing during the Ash Wednesday Mass when one counselor grabbed me by the arm and dragged me out. I was asked why I was “doodling” during Mass- I told her our family was atheists and why should I have to pay attention and the lady flipped.
Now this school actually let people of any religion into their school but if you were non-catholic you had to pay more. I didn’t really see why I was forced to go to Mass but whatever.
My mom was called and I was told I could either leave or be expelled. In a rare moment of coolness she told them all off and we left and I started a public school where I was free to express myself.
The rumors that spread about why I left were pretty funny though.

This is me. Yes I am over 30. Yes I am married. No I don’t really care if you like me or not. Cause at least I’ve never been afraid to be myself.
Didn’t know there was an age limit on blogging ..or on anything else in life.
Ok, so this happened the other night.
And I’m not posting this to brag- I am weirded out.
This blog has always been just me posting stuff I like and well I dunno…It’s just crazy. I’ve accumulated a ton of haters over the years on here and a few friends. It’s never been about getting a ton of followers and I never kiss ass- which is maybe why tumblr won’t fix any of the issues I have been having on here with ghost-noting, my inbox,etc.
This is a little overwhelming.. I feel like I need to make better quality posts or something…..I’m very grateful that people like the posts enough to follow this blog and just want to give a huge thanks to everyone. Almost everyone is really cool and supportive and I’m super grateful for all the kind messages and comments over the last few years.
