2009 I started my freshman year at the university of Oregon. I was concerned about finding love again. I had just started smoking and drinking. I was concerned about my physique. Constantly thinking to myself if college was the right move, during most parties I found myself wanting to be alone in my room. A lot of confusion and fun during that time. My emotions were up and down depending on what drugs were in my body or what girl fancied me. Still trying to figure it out.
2019 Its about to be my 5th anniversary with Heather after meeting on OkCupid.com. My second year of tattooing in a shop. I have recently reconnected with my family after 7 years of no communication or relationship after being kicked out for smoking pot at the house with my little brother who was 14 or so at the time. He is currently my and heather’s roommate and one of my good friends. I have been practicing living a conscious lifestyle for about 4 years now after reading a book called zen and the art of happiness. Heather introduced me to that book of course and it changed my life. A couple years earlier I had picked up a book called “cognitive thinking for the irrational mind” or something and it was similar but it didn’t click at the time. Now I am choosing to see the positive side to all situations and share the positivity. I want everybody to feel as good as they can so I try to share and spread the love and positivity when I can. Art and tattooing has a positive impact on me so I try give back by spreading the love of art and tattooing. Heather and I hope to travel the world and make a living from making and selling art and we’re slowly getting there! #2009vs2019#tattooartist#theartofhappiness
