Everyone has that one thing that they are obsessed with whether it is sock monkeys, pandas or cats. To me, my one thing is a cactus.
For anyone who knows me or has stepped foot into my dorm room knows that I like cacti and succulents ... a lot. Everyone reading this (as of January 2018) sees that my website even has a "cactus" theme.
It all started small with buying a cactus and throughout the year I have acquired 3 more succulents and a larger cactus. Along with plants, if there is a cactus version, I buy it or receive it as a gift AKA bags, ornaments, stained glass, laptop cases, note books, note pads, sticky notes, pens, mugs, stickers, pins, pillows, lights, wall art, etc
You name it, and I have it.
You might be thinking, "This girl is crazy," and yeah you would be right,
because I just got a cactus tattoo.
Now before everyone freaks out, let me explain. To me, a cactus is strong, independent, resilient and frankly they don't give a f**k. My first semester of college had some highs, but also definitely had some lows. I had to be what a cactus is in order to complete my first semester successfully with grades that allowed me to be on the Dean's List. By having a cactus on my body, it is a constant reminder to continue to have these qualities day to day. While tattoos may not be for everyone, I love the decision that I made.
