So... Friday I took my Registration exam to become a Registered Dietitian. It was a big day, and of course I passed, and I was very very excited.
I partied hearty and got my friends to buy me shots and it was merry.
But I wanted to commemorate the occasion with something better than a hangover. SO I got a new tattoo.
I am copying this story from my LJ so apologies if you are stalking me and already read it:
Zinnias are my favorite flower. Always have been. I love them.
Nobody probably knows that, because who talks about their favorite flower in casual conversation?
So at my internship graduation they did this presentation comparing each of the interns to a flower. Mine was the zinnia, much to my delight, because as I have now explained, they are my favorite.
Their reasons were that zinnias are bright, drought-resistant (I was very adaptable during the internship and pretty much put up with anything, because I rule), and because they're native to Mexico (I did a lot of translation during the internship as well - Spanish menus, a Spanish seminar, and handout translations. Plus I talked about going out for Mexican food all the time, ha).
I'd like to add that Zinnias attract butterflies and thrive in containers.
So without further ado, I would like to present my freaking AMAZING Zinnia that was done by Steve at Toucan Tattoo in Gloucester Pt, VA.
Now I will be the first to LOL at my freckly back, but you have to admit boy did a *****ing job on this flower. He is my hero and I'm gonna let him make something cooler out of my now-dorky-by-comparison butterfly.
