Don't act like you're not jelly of my @gaydolphingifts shirt 🐬 I'll be back in #MyrtleBeach a week from today and you betcha I'll be visiting the #GayDolphin while I'm down there! Can't wait to see my southern family 🌴 #gaydolphingiftcove
At first the moon was a mere 14,000 miles away from earth while it is now more than 238,000 miles away and moves further each year. While gravitationally locked in orbit, the two shall never meet.
How is it possible to want the world while being so in love with the moon? I'm forever locked in the gravitational struggle. 💚💚🌙💚💚
If this sweatshirt could talk... I got this at my first @atreyuofficial show in 2004 at the @thewebsterct in #hartford #Connecticut. #Atreyu has been my favorite band for nearly twelve years now and their music may have even saved me from myself when I was battling some fierce demons as a teenager. After I lost my best friend to suicide in 2003 I found that I couldn't relate to anyone anymore because thirteen year old kids don't understand loss. No one could reach me but music could. I discovered Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses and something about that album stuck. I had never been introduced to anything harder than The Rolling Stones and finding anything outside of pop culture was nearly impossible in my small Connecticut town. I picked out the album from Strawberries based off of just one lyric I had read of theirs while searching for something else on the Internet. I had read every single lyric three times over before I bought that album; all you could find online back then was a couple songs on a MySpace page.
This sweatshirt is thin and has holes and bleach stains and it's still here. I remember every second of that show and how I felt alive for the first time since I lost Ryan. This was before smartphones when people talked to each other, actually interacted... Back when we were human and my teenage angst needed an outlet that wasn't behind a keyboard.
I have an entire side piece dedicated to the song Ain't Love Grand but that band goes way deeper than skin; they're soaked into the marrow in my bones, the blood in my veins. Without this band I honestly don't think I would have had the will to survive past the age of sixteen. No matter what, I could always listen to this music and go into a different world.
So thank you, @atreyuofficial. We've never had the opportunity to meet in person but I hope we do one day so that I can personally thank you for being such an amazing influence in my life. I might not be breathing today if it wasn't for you. Thank you.
Here's one of my self portraits featured in @mandmmodelingmagazine in the issue being launched in downtown #chicago tonight. Thanks to everyone who has made this possible! I have a two page spread about being a #tattooedmodel and how I am also my own #photographer 📸 check out the issue (released in print to the public tomorrow) if I'm not seeing you at the launch party tonight!
I'd also like to give a special thanks to everyone who has asked me how I'll ever be employed with all my #tattoos over the past decade I've had of collecting them. To those people, I would officially like to say, "Suck it."
Most of all, thanks to my dad for making me so friggin' awesome. This Tiki made possible by Papa Leff.

Today is my step sister's birthday. She passed away suddenly this past November. Carnations and snowdrops are the flowers of January so I decided to get them in her memory. Next session the snowdrops will be added (and carnations finished.) I love you @esjay_1890 ♥️ I'll always miss you, Sam. Thank you for everything and treating me like we were blood related.

If you order an @uber in #chicago I just might be your driver 😆 oh yeah, and I drive a #stickshift like the badass lady I am ☠ just look for the @toyotausa #hatchback with the #Connecticut plates. If you ride with me there is a strong chance you will be listening to the #SpaceJam soundtrack.
