My Recommended Piercing Shops in Calgary:
#1 The Arthouse Inc.
This is my number one choice because I have been going here for quite a few years. There are two different piercers name Laura and Sondra. They are the best of the best if you ask me and they know what they are doing. If you have ever gone to a tattoo festival here in Calgary, AB you would have seen them there. They have won awards for there business which includes; tattooing, piercings, laser tattoo removal and selling jewelry&merchandise.

#2 Strange World Tattoo
This is my number two choice because I have gone here with a bunch of my friends who have nothing but good things to say about this place. They have gotten numerous amount of piercings and three of them have gotten numerous amounts of tattoos. They only have one person who does piercings and her name is George. She is full of information so if you have any questions she's the best person to ask. She also helps run the shop keeping the business going. Strangeworld has also been apart of tattoo conventions and has won awards for there business.
Word of Advice:
I believe getting a piercing is something that should take a lot of thought. It should be a decision you are willing to make, not forced by friends or family. I also believe that if it is something you want, you shouldn't let what others say keep you from.
On that note I also believe that you should wait until you're older (old enough to sign the consent sheet without a parent), all because it's not "permanent", it does leave scars. It shouldn't be something you get because a friend told you to get, or because someone thinks it would look "cool" on you. Your body=your decision.
**I highly recommend that you do your research before you sit down on that chair, and get a needle jabbed through your skin. What you do, and where you choose has consequences. Different diseases, bad piercings, un-sanitized jewelry/needles/piercing equipment and unprofessional piercers. Make sure you know what you're getting yourself into before you do it to your body.
***I highly recommend not getting piercings done by friends with things like; safety pins, sewing needles, and earring's. Even if they say they know what they're doing, don't always trust them.

I say cheer me up because lately things have been all out of whack with everything. I'm finally just finishing school which is a big load off....but work has been getting on my nerves more and more. When you think Wal-Mart most people think low prices, good deals. When I think Wal-Mart, I think under payed, miserable, stuck up people who hate their jobs. No one has any respect for one another and everyone gets the crap end of the stick because of it. It's almost like the managers and supervisors get paid to be bitches to you....it's as if they truly enjoy watching people make crap money, looking miserable and in some cases, cry. I say some cases because there are the odd few that actually break down and cry. Me being one of them. I'm normally not the one to break down and get bothered by the way someone has treated/talked to me....but in this case I just couldn't take it anymore. I try and tell myself that I'm the better person and they are just low life pieces of crap stuck working this s**t job for the rest of their lives...but when you get it every day from absolutely everyone. It tends to bother you just a little bit. SO I've made a little (big) promise to myself. Once I get back from Vancouver I'm going to find a different/better job. Wal-Mart can go shove it up their low priced, stuck up asses.
Everyone has fights with their "best friends" and sometimes they get over it and sometimes they actually stop being friends with that person. About a year and a half ago my best friend and I got into a pretty big fight. The biggest fight we have ever had since we started being friends. It was bound to happen eventually...it just came sooner than expected. Wanna know what it was about? Her not liking the person I was dating. They both didn't get along very well and in the end her and I got into a huge fight and well... stopped talking. It came as a pretty big shock to some people because we were so close and did almost everything together. This one fight ruined our friendship and it hurt a lot more than I ever thought it would. I've had other "close" friends in my life before...but none that actually understood me for me. After that fight my boyfriend realized how it hurt me, and and blamed himself. I don't know if it was because of him, or also the fact that things were probably going down hill anyways? Losing a friend isn't something most people would want to experience...but will never have the control over. A couple months ago I was going through things in my room and found a picture frame with a picture in it of me and this friend of mine. It was a Christmas present she made for me a couple years ago. I had took it down shortly after we stopped talking and I figured I might as well put it back up. I really liked it. Not long after I hung that picture back up, I actually got a call from her. She had moved back into Calgary and was getting into piercing. She wanted someone to "practice" on and figured I would be a good person to do so. Her boyfriend predicted that we'd get to talking again and start hanging out. He was right. We talked over what happened and all the things we've missed in each others lives...and we have started hanging out again. I don't know what will happen with this friendship, or if we will ever be as close as we once were. I guess only time will tell.

Day Twenty Five:
Tuesday, March 8, 2011
Question: What about Daniel?
Answer: "Nothing!" My friend Courtney tends to butt into conversations she wasn't apart of. My mother and I were talking about my boyfriend, Daniel, and then walked in Courtney.
Day Twenty One:
Question: Have a good sleep babe?
Answer: "Sure did, lol."
Day Twenty Two:
Question: When do you work tomorrow?
Answer: "I don't." :)
Day Twenty Three:
Question: Are you tired?
Answer: "No, not really. Like I can sleep, or I'm good to stay up all night."-I was staying over with my boyfriend at his sisters, and I yawned. Daniel automatically thinks I'm tired and ready for bed.
Day Twenty Four:
Question: What do you think I should do?
Thursday, March 3, 2011
Question: Are you ready?
Answer: Yes. I'm normally ready in time to go to the gym.
Question: When does your bus come?
Answer: Yes I still take the bus...and I don't exactly remember the time I said it came. But my mother usually asks me so she knows when I have to leave for work.
Question:Can you wake me up at 7:30?
Answer: Why? Are you afraid of setting it for pm again? Mom mother tends to screw up the times she sets her alarm clock for. Sometimes she'll ask me to make sure she's up...just in case.
Question: What time did you go to bed?
Answer: I haven't yet! This was the other day when I needed to cram finishing all my homework into one night. I've done it before, and know I shouldn't keep doing it because it never turns out. But my dad worked a graveyard shift that night, and by the time he got home he was surprised to see me up. He was wondering why I was up and when I went to bed. He seemed pretty surprised when I told him I hadn't gone to bed.
Question: On the phone?
Answer: I usually spend quite a bit of time on the phone, and when the boyfriend and I haven't texts each other in a while, usually we'll catch up on what the other person is doing. I was on the phone earlier that night so he assumed, which is a good assumption, that I'm still be on the phone. He was wrong. I actually feel asleep. =P
Question: Any Higher?
Answer: It doesn't really get high. A few weeks ago the pipes in my house got plugged up. So whenever we put clothes in the wash or flushed a toilet, the water in the laundry room and basement bathroom would overflow. Well it did it again last night...BLAH! It just leaks a craaap load of water, we use whatever we can find to soak it up. He normally only effects the laundry room, seeps into the furnace room and then over flows the bathroom. Which kind of soaks the carpet just outside those rooms. It stinks and isn't the most pleasant to deal with. Errrg!!

Question: How was your sleep?
Answer: Awesome. It was well needed. My answer to my boyfriend who had to wake up many hours before me to go to work, so I got to rub it into his face that I slept good and for a long period of time. =]
Question: How are you?
Answer: Good. This was also asked by the boyfriend...it's our daily routine.
Question: Why aren't you here to cuddle with me right now?
Answer: Because I wasn't offered. The boyfriend was just at my house that night and by the time he got home I guess he was a little lonely...he should have invited me over.
Day Thirteen (today):
Answer: Again this was asked by the boyfriend. But we had just woken up and were sitting in the living room where he seemed a bit cranky, cause he was....but we were talking and in a very cranky he asked what. I don't even remember why to be honest but I called him cranky. He doesn't like it when I do that. =/

but I can't wait for the rest]
The next night, (thursday), we went out that early afternoon and got some crepes and frozen yogurt. We tried something new from our usual, strawberry cheesecake. I didn't have high expectations for it, but now I think it might be my favorite. (I highly recomend you go and try it out.) After our adventure for breakfast we headed to Chinook Mall for dinner & a movie, plus my suprise valentines present. He took we straight to Build-A-Bear where I got to pick out which bear I wanted, heartbeat/voice, and an outfit. I now have a badass, biker bear named Ryder! (He's a boy!)
[Harley Davidson leather jacket, awesome shades,
and knock-off converse shoes!]
After that amazing suprise we headed to what we thought was going to be Moxies for dinner, until we found out that Chinook doesn't have one. We settled for Joey's Tomatoes where we were pleasantly suprised with the delicous starters and entrees we had! We than headed to Kernels for some popcorn to sneak into the movie where we then saw "No Strings Attatched"! I must say it's on my top list of movies everyone of you should go see along side "The Green Hornet."
I must say that this Valentines was definetely my favorite. I'm pretty glad that I have such an amazing boyfriend that loves to spoil me! (If you want to head over to his blog here--->toomuchthought, you can read his side of our awesome night together.)
My sister is the one who had gotten me into blogging. I know I'm no PioneerWomen, but it doesn't hurt to give it a shot. My sister also invites me to random things like this blog convention they're holding here in Calgary for all the local bloggers. I'm going to give a shout out and ask you to come check it out and meet some local bloggers, enjoy some great coffee and hopefully walk away with some new friends and inpirations. Just click here----->twtvite, and I'll hope to see you there.
2. I guess this next thing I like is technically two,tattoos and piercings. I'm hooked on the fact that I enjoy 'modifying' my body. I like the fact that my body has stories that I'm constantly asked about on a day to day basis at work. I like what they do for me and my appearance, and I know I'm not done getting more yet.
I promise I don't and won't have that many.
4. Flip-flops! If it wasn't for the snow, I'd probably wear flip-flops everyday, all day! I don't know what it is, but I can't stop wearing them.
5. Last but definitely not least..I'm addicted to all these cheesy reality/dumb TV shows. One I am pulled in by...Jersey Shore. I think I'm actually a little embarrassed to admit that, but I can't help watching this stupid, GTL, t-shirt time goodness. [Please don't judge me :( ]
This is where I tag four people:
Question: So do you like it?
Answer: It's growing on me! Earlier that day I went out to the mall with my friend to go present shopping. Randomly I decided I was going to get my hair cut because it was rather over-due. The boyfriend is constantly reminding me how much it bothers him...I have lots of hair which happens to shed, quite a bit. My mother later that night had dyed my hair for me..and when I can come she was wondering if I liked it. Yes!
Question: Did you guys have fun?
Answer: Yeah we did. Again my mother had asked the question of the day. I'm not too sure if she knows that I'm even doing this, but I don't think she does it on purpose. This was the question asked after I went out with the boyfriend and his sister to Peters Drive In! Everything there is pretty much amazing. BUT after some Chocolate/Mocha, chocolate/Watermelon/raspberry, chocolate/marshmallow, chocolate/banana milkshakes, we headed back to his sister's house and hung out the rest of the night talking about random things.
Question: Do you wanna go to bed?
Answer: Yeah..! This was an awesome day full of excitement, good food, and awesome presents. The boyfriend and I got home pretty late and decided that we were ready for bed. I was pretty tired and kind of falling asleep on the couch. It was a good time to hit the sheets.
Day Nine: (Today)
Question: Do you have any change on you?
Answer: I think I do. My dad usually only pays for everything with debit, and my mom needed some change to take the bus to work the next day. She didn't have any change on her either (which is pretty weird for her), but since I'm like the hoarder of change it seems like some days, I probably do have some change I can hand over.
Tuesday, February 15, 2011
Question: Are you guys ready yet?
Answer: That what asked on Feb. 13 by my mother. The boyfriend and I were hanging out at my house dog sitting for my sister's three dogs. Jabo, Lily, and Iggy! If you don't know, Iggy and Jabo are named after two hockey players that are my sister's hockey loving boyfriends favorite players. The dogs were going to sleep in my room that night and I had asked my mom to take the dogs out earlier so I didn't have to go out in the cold weather. When she was done she came in and asked if we were ready for the dogs to come in for bed. The answer was no.
CUTEST DOGS EVER!
Day Four:Question: Do you work Tuesday?
Answer: Yes. That was the answer I gave my dad when we we're having a random talk one night. I was interested in his idea's for what I should do with the boyfriend for valentines day.
Day Five:Question: How are you?
Answer: I was feeling like crap and wished I could sleep a whole lot longer. The answer I gave to my friend Jeff was, "Could be better." I've been pretty sick the past few days...I've felt like I was getting a cold, and today it finally hit me. It smacked me right in the center of my face where it now hurts to breath. I have a runny and stuffed nosed, and my throat is killing me. How do you think I'm feeling?
Saturday, February 12, 2011
Normally I would love to go out on this day and spend an amazing night with the boyfriend, but it turns out that we both are working that day! BLAH! Solution=Valentines on Thursday the 17th instead of the 14th. What we're doing is still unknown. SO if whoever is reading this blog has any sort of idea's on what we could do, please throw come comments my way BELOW. [Try and include idea's that don't involve dinner + movies, making eachother dinner...that kind of thing. :)]
Question: "You wouldn't want to go get me ice would you?"
Answer: This question came from my mom around 1:00 O'Clock in the morning. Her face has been pretty swollen the past couple days and we had just ran out of ice. Instead of waiting four hours for the our own ice to freeze, I went for a little walk to go get her some.
Question: "Jessica, why do you hate me?"
Answer: *Laugh*, "I don't hate you!" Was my reply to my friend Aaron who was depressed after a night of drinking. We were on a three way phone call with my other friend Courtney and the two of us were just messing with him with a couple jokes here and there.
Thursday, February 10, 2011
I am a huge movie lover. And if I really enjoy a certain film, I can watch it over and over. Just ask my whole family. When I was around 6/7 years old the movie "Titanic" came out. I had watched it with my whole family that day and fell in love with it. So within the next couple days following I locked myself in my parents room and watched the movie over and over...probably around 50+ times. To this day, it's still my favourite movie. BUT back to the point! My boyfriend and I love going to the movie theatres and watching all kinds of movies. Our goal before Christmas was to try and see at least one movie a week. So far that hasn't happened. But last night we went and saw "The Green Hornet". I must say that it was AMAZING. I laughed so hard and it's definitely a keeper on my list. There hasn't been that many 'great' movies out lately, so this one most definitely surprised me the most.
I found a new favorite chocolate item. I found my new love at the movie's last night. We were getting some popcorn and in the candy stands there they were, just calling out to me. These delicious things are the Coffee Crisp Bites!!! Oh. My. Gosh. They aren't overwhelming with coffee flavour, so I bag you to try them. You just might fall in love too!
As for trying new things, I'm going to try a new questionnaire that 2mt4fbook created. It's called; Thirty Questions in 30 Days. This is what you do...
Take the first question of your day, remember it, write it down (if you have troubles remembering things), and when you get the chance...answer it! Don't forget, it has to be your FIRST question of the day. It can be on a sign as you're walking, or a question someone asks you. Here's the catch-they can only be answered once. So if the first question of day one is "What's up?", any form of that being 'sup', or 'wazzup' is out of our question category. And since it can only be answered once within the thirty days, you need to remember the second question of the day-as your backup. SO now it's your turn to take this challenge and GO answer it...NOW!
Question: Do you like mango's?
Answer: "Mango's are disgusting!" Was my answer to my boyfriend's mother. I slept over at my boyfriends house last night and when we woke up today he had a missed call and voicemail from his mom about mango's. She was out this morning going grocery shopping and at this certain place if you spend a certain amount of money per purchase, you get something free! Today's free item was a case of mango's. She wasn't too fond of them herself so she was calling to ask my boyfriend if he liked them, or if my family wanted them. I don't really like mango anything. The actual fruit or even mango flavour in smoothies...etc. I was quick to turn that offer down.
