CAPES [something empowering] When I got my tattoo done, before the artist began, he asked me if I was sure it was what I wanted. My friend commented, “Does she look like the kind of person that doesn’t know what she wants?” It got me to thinking about decisions. When I make a decision about something, I stick with it. Whether it be a drink order, meal order, or tattoo, go into it with confidence. No one likes the girl that gets to the front of the line at Starbucks and still can’t make up her mind.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Ink is addicting. Beware. My latest says “oranje is de kleur van gekte” which means “orange is the color of insanity”, a quote from Vincent Van Gogh, which is also featured in this Nike ad.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] I have developed a theory about hybrid bicycle riders…they are cyclists that can’t make up their mind between two good things, so settle for something in the middle and think it’s awesome when it’s not. Shame on them. Stay away.
