I Want A New Tattoo

So, I’ve been thinking about it and I really want to get another tattoo. I have two now so this will my third and I just like them so much. I don’t want anything off the wall or really crazy because that just wouldn’t be me. But I’ve been looking around and I found a couple of ideas that I like, but I just can’t decide which. The one that I found is on both wrists and it says ‘make believe’ across the wrists and has two little bands around the left wrist above the word believe. Another one is getting ‘Omnia Vincit Amor’ around one wrist or I’ve considered possibly getting that written down one of my forearms. Another thought that came to mind was maybe getting the ‘make believe’ with the bands on one wrist and ‘Omnia Vincit Amor’ around the other wrist above the word make. I’ve included a couple of pictures of the three ideas so take a look and let me know what you think of the ideas and which sounds particularly the best to you.

It’s about that time of the year when everybody has a smile on and every child is happy and filled with joy. It’s a holiday season better than any other, and its shared with those who we love most and hold dearest to our hearts. Its Christmas time! Christmas is more than gifts and presents. Its tradition. It’s out playing in the snow, or sitting inside all warm and cozy. It’s about those who you love and spending time with family and friends. It’s about smiling at everyone you see and being happy.

I cant wait to be home for Christmas. Only a few more days and I’m there (to stay). I’m going home. I’m leaving Eastern after the end of this semester and starting at CSCC for the winter quarter. Some people say that I might be rushing into the decision to leave, but its something that I have thought about over and over and have decided it’s what I’m going to do. I really can’t wait to be back. I do miss my family and friends, and being around loved ones more than just a couple of times a month, and that’s only on the weekends. I want to see them everyday. I feel like this is something I need to do for me. I’m actually excited. I know that I’m going to be happier and enjoy myself more. Spending more time with my family and staying with my friends. Playing Ultimate all the time, and possibly starting our own team to play in the Columbus league. It’s going to be amazing! Its going to be a nice change. Five months of this was enough I suppose. It was nice learning what it is like be away and be on my own though.

I have finals week coming up. I’m not really looking forward to taking finals but I know that once I’m done I get to go home. I’m getting pretty excited. I’m looking forward to saying Hello to Ohio again, for good.


Are You A Writer?

Not sure why I didn’t think about this before, but I did now and there’s still quite a bit of time left to submit.

Are you a writer? Photographer? Artist of any sort? Are you also an undergraduate student at any college or university somewhere? If you fit into any of these categories and you’d like the opportunity to possibly have a piece of your work published then you should highly consider submitting to Polaris, the undergraduate journal of arts and literature at Ohio Northern University. We are now accepting submissions in the categories of Nonfiction, Fiction, Poetry, and Visual Art. If you think you might be interested check out our website at PolarisMag.org and view the submission requirements. We will be accepting submissions until February 25, 2011 EST.

If you’re not sure about wanting to submit quite yet then just go surf around our site and look at some of the past publications in the archives section and see what you think.

Remember that Polaris only accepts submissions from undergraduate students.


Snow On Our Blog!!

Hey everyone, it’s snowing on our blog page! Those of you that are seeing this post somewhere other than our site should come check it out. I’m not that much of a fan of Winter itself because I hate the cold and ice and what not, but I still think snow can be a really pretty site during this time of year. If you have any great photos of snow that are just really captivating post them on your blog or Facebook page or whatever you have to post them on. If you don’t have somewhere cool to put them feel free to send them to us at brothers.northerntsunami@gmail.com and we’ll post them up on our page for you.

It’s getting close to Christmas and Christmas break from school so we want to wish everyone and very merry Christmas (or very happy holidays). Enjoy the season and cherish the time you have with your families. ­čÖé


Another Great Song

For You I Will (Confidence) – Teddy Geiger

Wondering the streets, in a world underneath it all
Nothing seems to be, nothing tastes as sweet
As what I can’t have
Like you and the way that you’re twisting your hair
round your finger
Tonight I’m not afraid to tell you
What I feel about you.

I’m gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
and cannon ball into the water
I’m gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
For you I will

Forgive me if I stutter
From all of the clutter in my head
Cuz I could fall asleep in those eyes
Like a water-bed
Do I seem familiar, I’ve crossed you in hallways
a thousand times, no more camouflage
I want to be exposed, and not be afraid to fall.

I’m gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
And cannon ball into the water
I’m gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
You always want what you can’t have
But I’ve got to try
I’m gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
For you I will
For you I will
For you

If I could dim the lights in the mall
And create a mood I would
Shout out your name so it echos in every room
I would

That’s what I’d do, That’s what I’d do to get through to you

I’m gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
And cannon ball into the water
I’m gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
You always want what you can’t have
But I’ve got to try
I’m gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
For you I will
For you I will
For you I will
