Over this past month or so, I’ve been seriously thinking about getting a tattoo. I’ve always wanted one since I was young, having seen my sisters add to their ink collection over the years. Before now it didn’t feel ‘right’ to get one. No idea what has changed but my desire to get one has become stronger. 

I’m debating about whether to get a quote or art tattoo. I live by quotes because they can be applied to any situation. Art and images is/is something quirky and interesting. I can’t figure out which is more meaningful; quotes or art. I guess it depends on the individual. I need make sure whatever I choose is suitable. I doubt clients would be keen on a lawyer who has a tattoo visible.

-Ideas that I have for quote tattoos: 

"Faith in Fate" 
I think this would go on my inner foot. Lately, things for me have been falling into place. It’s like all of the pieces of the puzzle are finally coming together; that every step that I take feels like it’s in the right direction, hence why I would place it on my foot. Another thing is I don’t know whether to have it done in Latin (relevant to my law career) or in English for simplicity. 

"Every Little Thing Gonna Be Alright"
Back of my neck underneath this:

 


When my family goes through difficult times we always quote Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds. It’s just something we have always done. 

"Surda"
 Latin for ‘Deaf’. I’d have it behind my ear by my hairline. 

-Ideas for art: 

The ‘Noughts and Crosses’ from this Banksy painting: 

Simply because you don’t know whether the nought or the cross is going to to win, but you know one will. The outcome is definite, but there is still some uncertainty. Its relevant to me and law, because you know justice will be served, but you don’t know how. I don’t know where I would put it though…

Dandelion:

On my shoulder blade. It doesn’t mean anything to me but it just causes me to sigh with content when I see it. I don’t know why; I just like it. 



Hmmm. I got a lot to think about.

A tan for Graduation would be quite nice… :D I’m not sure the UK will be getting much sun this summer, never mind Wolves!

Oooohhh. Hello, Tumblr. It’s been a while… A long while. 

So I’ve finally finished my Undergraduate degree and I graduate in September. I also start my Postgraduate course in September. Scary! I’m not sure how I feel about it all. My Postgrad will probably suck the life out of me (well, any life that I have remaining after my undergrad!). I remember my lecturer talking about it and she said (and I quote) "Wave good-bye to your life for one year, and be prepared to eat, breathe, live, and have nightmares about the Solicitors’s Professional Code of Conduct and Regulation". Wonderful…! 

If anything I feel like I want a break from education. 17years in full-time education with no gap years or what-not can be draining! Somebody buy me a holiday?! I did go on few days break to Scotland with some family, but it got to the point where I was asked if, because I was Deaf, could I read Braille. No. Just no.  


Like I said, it’s been a long while since I’ve made a post. I’m not entirely sure what to write about. I guess this means I need to find something I’m passionate enough about to write blogs on. How on earth do you get the inspiration to write about something? 
I hope everyone is okay?

“Deaf Teens, Hearing World”
I wouldn’t normally do this, I hate seeking attention but I feel deaf awareness and understanding needs to be improved. I am going to be participating in a documentary on BBC3 at 9pm on 6th February.
It will be about different deaf people doing different things, just like any normal hearing person would (going to university, going to music festivals etc)
Each deaf person in the documentary has a different level of hearing loss and different views on deafness. This would be beneficial to the public and help eliminate some of the preconceptions of deaf people. As the deaf community is very much a closed off “access denied” community, this would be an opportunity to have a sneak peek of what its really like to be deaf. 
If you do watch it, I hope you enjoy it and any feedback on my tumblr would be awesome! Will pass them along to the director who I worked closely with and developed a really good friendship with. She would be pleased 
(the photo above is when I came out of my operation, with the director of the documentary- operation will be shown!!!)


SKY+’d! So looking forward to this documentary!

Annnnnnnnnnnd people are p***ing me off. I’m already stressed beyond words, I don’t need your stress or patronizing words as well!

Yes, it’s a seen exam… NO, IT’S NOT A PIECE OF CAKE! NO! WRONG! If it was a piece of cake I would be sipping champagne with strawberries in it right now. 

ARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

 

I feel a bit better now. Back to exam prep.

If you are going to be influence by someone to a point where it changes your view and opinion of me, well… 

frankly, you aren’t worth it.
