So, before you all think I am crazy I will assure you that I am telling the truth. I truly do love my job. :)Where do I work? I work at a tattoo shop called, Happy Monkey Tattoo. I am not a tattoo artist but I help with the designing process and I am also the receptionist. I help clients day to day to meet their needs; I also try to help the artists out as much as I can. ...more

I had the pleasure of hearing her speak about her epic journey in person as part of a live conference a few weeks ago and truly wanted to share it with this community.
Friday was so beautiful here. Actually, it's been so nice for the past week... including the weekend! I was a little shocked by the weekend part because usually it'll be nice all week and then when it's playtime, it'll rain. Murphy's Law at its best.Anyway, I initially planned to stay home and clean on Friday. However, it was just too nice to be stuck in the house so I headed to Nakagusuku Castle. It's one of the best preserved castles in its original state and was registered on the World Heritage List in 2000....more
