I got a second ear piercing.
When I chose to live out dream this year, I knew I'd want to keep an eye on my bucket list and see what dreams of mine I could complete. As my birthday came up and I couldn't think of anything I wanted, I decided to pick a couple activities that would cost a little money and would make good birthday presents. One of these was "get a second ear piercing."
I have one set of regular holes from when I was a few months old. One thing you, my lovely readers, should understand is that I'm not a normal girl when it comes to jewelry. I can't wear any earrings that aren't pure yellow gold for more than a few hours. I get lucky if they last all day without itching, redness, possibly even gross allergic-reaction-type stuff. I can't wear watches at all, even sports watches, because the metal backs of the actual watch piece irritate my wrist. Bracelets and rings sometimes give me problems, too.
So I went back and forth a lot on whether to go through with this. Another factor: I have no pain tolerance. None. Also, Claire's doesn't have pure 24K yellow gold, only 14K, and with stainless steel backings. I was so afraid of infection, of pain and irritation, of removing my earrings and letting the holes heal and having it all be a waste. Right now that still could happen. But I went through with it anyway.
