I’ve been trying to do things that scare me, as once you do them your comfort zone gets that little bit bigger…
No8 was get a tattoo
I never knew how sweet pain could be til then. 5 hours, only a ten minute break, no pain killers, but BOY did it feel good. Except for the last 40 minutes which were agony. But I love having something etched on my skin, which no-one else has. I love the indelible artwork. I love the process of being tattooed. I love the ritual nature of the procedure. I want more.
Do something scary no9 was go on a ‘flirting safari’. Sounds stupid but came about because i had originally signed up with friends, and ended up going by myself to London, but was good. I can talk to just about anyone, unless it has something to do with me and my feelings and i have the chance of being hurt. Playing the fool is good because then if someone doesnt like you, well it wasnt really you.
So on this safari we talked about how to talk to guys and then we were made to go out in Selfridges and talk to them, talk to all different sorts of people and talk to them about their personal life, get to know them, etc etc. It was scary but cool and I actually chatted to someone nice and we exchanged FB details then numbers. I am not sure if I exactly like him in that way, but just to know it is possible, and that humans arent that scary, is pretty good.
