I'm going on holiday in a couple of hours, but for now...

Think on don't have to comment, but think it to yourself: if you had to cast a Patronus Charm, right now, what memory would you choose?

It's a nice thing to think about.

Long time no speak :)


How are we all? Good? I'm glad.
Now, we know all the best blog posts start with excuses, right? Sorry it's been a while, once again I've found myself busy busy busy, and when I'm not busy I'm too tired to even think straight, let alone compose some kind of coherent blog post.

Possibly I'm also just lazy, ANYWAY. I turned 18 just under a month ago, which means I'm legally allowed to get a tattoo. Which is something I've wanted to do for SO LONG. My only problem now is deciding what to get :/ for any of you who might be interested though, here are some of the front-runners...

The tattoo: Well that's basically it. A lyric from Florence + The Machine - Raise It Up in vaguely typerwriter-y font. I'm toying with the idea of having "the" at the front as well.
The location: Probably the inside of my wrist.
The meaning: Twofold. Number one, I freaking love Florence + The Machine. Number two, the full sentence of the lyric is "I must become the lion-hearted girl," which is sort of true. It's kind of a reminder in life to stay brave even when things get tough.
Pros: It's small and easily hide-able. And super cool.
Cons: On the wrist is supposed to be really painful. Song lyrics might date. Typewriter font is a bit of a hipster retard thing.

The tattoo: "Le monde est a nous." A quote from La Haine, probably in the exact same font. 
The location: Again, probably wrist. 
The meaning: Translates literally to "the world is ours." For me it kind of speaks of the idea that the world is ours to grab, ours to hold, ours to live in, and not ours to just exist in. Also it's in French and I love French. And France.
Pros: Again, easily hide-able. 
Cons: Will probably have a million people asking what it means. Another language is maybe a bit pretentious.  Sounds a bit environmentalist eco-friendly hippy-dippy which is definitely not my style.

The tattoo: A daisy. With yellow in the middle but basically like this one.
The location: Wrist? Foot?
The meaning: It's a pretty flower. Okay no, I've always been a daisy person and that's the only way I can describe it.
Pros: ...small and easily hide-able?
Cons: Foot tattoos and colour tattoos hurt like a bitch. And pictures might date faster because of the way they're drawn.

And I'm maybe considering getting something vaguely Beauty and the Beast related but that sounds so tacky when I say it out loud so I'll leave it at that!

Basically, for any of you who've read this far...which one would you pick if you were me? And indeed, would you ever consider getting a tattoo yourself? Or do you already have one? Talk tattoos to me people!
