after two and a half years, and my persistent inflexibility, i'm taking the cartilage piercing out. :( the things i have sacrificed for this! sleeping on one side most nights! pushing the metal back through the flesh! occasional mild infection! which makes me sigh because the more you suffer for something (in this case, an inconvenience?), the more it means to you. (life lesson no.4).
then today i thought of sub-freezing temperatures. with a small piece of metal. in my ear.
and then that thing was out faster than .. than... a really, really fast thing.
p.s just discovered the band Empires today, and found out their entire album is free for the taking on their website. given how good they are, this is just. WIN.
