I Got My Cartilage Pierced

Hey everyone! Yesterday morning I went and I got my cartilage pierced! I won’t say too much about it now because I’m going to be uploading a video onto my YouTube channel explaining in detail what my piercing experience was like. So now I have six piercings total! Two on each lobe, my nose, and my cartilage. All I can say now is, wow! It didn’t hurt at all! Even my lobe piercings hurt more than my cartilage did! I didn’t feel a thing; no pressure, burning, or stinging. And it only burned for a few minutes afterwards. I got it done with a mechanical needle. It looks like a gun but it’s actually a needle that replaces the needle with the stud so quickly, so it’s the less painful option. The needle is too slow and the gun is too rough (and can also lead to infections.) So this mechanical needle thingy was a life saver, too bad like no piercing places use it except for the one I went to. And guess what? Afterwards, I didn’t have any pain either! It’s a miracle. Most people are sore for weeks/months. Anyway, I shall go now. I will post an update when I upload the video!

9 Things I Just Can’t Handle

fdsgfdgfh

Everyone has their little phobias and pet peeves and things they just cannot stand. Here are nine of mine. Originally, I was going to use pictures to go into further detail but I thought I’d be nice and spare everyone (mostly myself) the gruesomeness of having to see these things. What are some of yours? 

  • Needles

There’s an actual thing called needle phobia. The scientific name for it is “trypanophobia”. Yes, it is a real thing. There’s a whole bunch of facts and statistics. Including, a large percentage of people with this would rather die than get a shot and also some people just have a fear with medical needles. I feel a lot more comfortable having a needle pierce through my nose (which I got done last year) than get a flu shot in my arm. Seriously, it’s bad. Those of you who have this know what I’m talking about.

  • Centipedes 

NO, PLEASE, NOOO!!! Centipedes are ugly. And creepy. And weird. Ugh. No. Maybe my fear sprouted from waking up in the middle of the night when I was a kid and having a centipede casually walking right beside me. Yeah, I think I was scarred . . . I can’t even look at a picture of one without cringing and feeling things crawling all over me.

  • Raw Meat

When my mom was pregnant with my brother, she couldn’t stand seafood. He hates seafood. When my mom was pregnant with me, she couldn’t stand raw meat. And I absolutely despise it. I cannot cook meat because of this and probably never will. My husband will have to do it. Even looking at it makes me want to throw up. And as for steak? It has to be brown, well done, fully cooked. Any pink/red at all and I’ll gag. 

  • Rude People

But, doesn’t everyone hate rude people? Wait, what about rude people? Do rude people hate rude people? How does that even work? The questions that keep me awake at night . . . 

  • Sports

This one is pretty odd, but, I actually can’t stand sports. If I go to a hockey, baseball, or basketball game, I’m only there for that buzz of excitement in the air and the food. Mostly the food. I find them boring and I actually have a fear of soccer. I don’t know if it came from a bad experience or what, but I’ve always been scared of soccer and always will. *Shudders*.

  • Extremely Loud Noises

If it’s music I like, then no biggy. But if it’s music I hate, or any other loud noise, I immediately get a migraine and can’t focus and in certain situations depending on what it is and how loud it is, I can get really bitchy. So please don’t blow a horn in my ear at any given time or I may or may not attack you for it.

  • Redundant Romance Movies/Books

Blech. So annoying and corny. Yes, I do realize there’s some romance in Mackenzie High. But it’s not that kind of romance. Come on, people, do you really think Taylor and Lonny stare into each other’s eyes and say “I’d be lost without you?” Nu-uh. 

  • Cigarettes

I have to hold my breath when I walk past someone smoking. The smell is gross, the action is gross, just everything. 

  • Freezing Cold Weather

Which is odd because winter is my favorite season. (Because of Christmas, boots, cuddling next to the fireplace, hot cocoa, etc). And I LOVE my winter coat. But when I’m outside and it’s in the minuses, then no way. I’m outta there. 

 

Have a good week everyone!
