Hello 1620 Readers,
Last Friday, I was on a mission. On a mission to get a tattoo. I knew what I wanted. It had come to me on a dream and in the form of a Zoobook when I was a little kid. Then, In our trip to Colorado it flew above us and guided us to the mountains. A peregrine FALCON!
This is my fifth tattoo! Which means that I have five tattoos and can't wait to get more! I'm honestly not gonna lie. I'm not going to be one of those guys that try to act all though. This tattoo was hurting so freaking bad when I was getting it done and then the day after that it felt like some traced a falcon on my arm with a razor blade to add to all that in some sick twisted way I loved how soothing it was to get it done.
sidenote : Tonight I made grilled chicken with Puerto Rican spices after that I added BBq sauce to it and combined the two places where I have grown up and have been raised...Puerto Rico and the South!!! To top it all of I chopped the chicken and put on Ciabatta bread. It tasted delicious!!!

Hello Faithful Readers,
School is almost over and as I pace stressfully the hallways of our school I am able to feel the intense pressure and stress of turning work and finished pieces on time. To say the least, I also have a bunch of work to turn in.
On a lighter note, I'm getting a tattoo on friday and I am super stoked on it. A falcon will be my next tattoo. It will be a line drawing of my spirit animal that has been present in my life since childhood when my aunt bought me the zoobooks collection.
Also, Easter Sunday was a wonderful day at the 1002 house that was spent doing house/yard work and then my family came up from Franklin to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ with my roomates and I. My mother, made a succulent Puertorican meal and after that we played frisbee in our recently mowed back yard. So far this week, is going alright not only because Preview Day went so well,but because I'm getting somewhere in drawing class (my self portrait looks like me). That's all for now. Here's a picture of a falcon. I hope you all can share in the joy of my 5th tattoo.
Don't get caught in the wave.
