Welcome

Would you believe I had a version of this that I absolutely loved, and I lost it? So frustrating. It was the perfect post. Anyway. Welcome to my blog! I haven’t had a traditional blog since Xanga in the early 2000s. I was just a teenager. I spent my time talking about middle and high school, my huge crush on this guy I went to church with, and my friends. I hope that page doesn’t exist anymore. It was terrible. I remember only getting it, because my friends had them and I wanted to fit in. Desperately. I didn’t really need to try that hard. I mean, they were already my friends.  But, I was young. I didn’t know any better.

This time around, I created this blog as part of an assignment for grad school. I just started the MLIS program at San Jose State University’s School of Library and Information Sciences. Yay me! I struggled, though, with what to call it. Originally, I wanted to name it “Librarian In Training,” but that was already taken. I sat and thought for a bit, then came up with Tattooed Librarian Lush. It combines my three favorite things: tattoos, libraries and librarians, and drinking. This should give you fair warning about what I’ll be posting. In addition to school work, I’ll chat about what books I’m reading, what I’m drinking, my current and future tattoos. I may even add a few posts about what I’m watching on tv or at the movies and listening to on the radio.  Side note: I love I Heart Radio and The Kane Show.

Well, enough about me. I’m off to start the next section of class. Oh, the class I’m in right now is LIBR203: Online Social Networking. I’ve already finished Units 1 and 9. This is the beginning of Unit 2. Yes, I am jumping around, but that’s ok.

See you soon!

  1. You should take pictures of your tattoos and post them! I sometimes think about getting a small tattoo on my ankle but I think I’m too chicken to actually go through with it (the pain factor)!

    • Hi Stacey! I am actually planning to take some pictures and post stories about the journey to getting whichever one is pictured. Don’t be scared…on second thought, be a little scared. A tattoo on the ankle is going to hurt something fierce. Try drawing the design with a permanent marker, and wearing it around town for few days/weeks. If you still love the piece, go for it!
