2012 isn’t even halfway done, and it’s already been one of the most important years in my life. I finished my degree after 7 (7!) years of hard work, found a teaching job for next year, and – most importantly – will be marrying my best friend this September.

I wasn’t raised with many rites of passage, so I think that getting tattoos has been one of the ways I have marked time as an adult. I got my first during my senior year of college, my second when I graduated, the third when I’d been living on my own for a while, and the fourth during my first year of graduate school. All of them can be covered by clothing, and usually are. They are my secret ink, testaments to how I’ve grown and changed.

I think it may be time for another one.
