So… I kinda want a nose piercing…

If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed that I went on a nose piercing spree the other night.

I’ve been interested in getting my nose pierced for a couple of years, but have always held back due to oh, you know, my desire to have  job. Well, I’m now in graduate school and will not return to the buttoned-up job world for at least another two years. I think now is the time. I can at least have the piercing for a few years and then take it out before the job search and interview process begins.

Can I get an amen, sistas?

I think part of this desire stems from my “good girl” life. I have always followed the rules, worked hard, never in trouble, and did the right thing. I followed a straight and narrow path my entire life and where did that get me a year ago? Miserable and filled with regret. No mas. Now, I’m just going to do it.

Plus, I secretly (or not so secretly) want to be a bad ass and maybe this will slightly accomplish it. Oh, yeah, I’d also like to dye my hair purple too.

Some old school photos. I completely forgot that Christina Aguilera and Kelly Clarkston had nose piercings.

Sometimes things happen in life that just make you want to seize the day. Not that getting a nose piercing is exactly “seize the day” material, but you get my point. Why wait for something that I’ve held back from? We don’t know what tomorrow brings, so now is the time.

I’ll keep you updated once I do it.
