    If my friend decides to get her lip repierced this weekend I might go ahead and get my septum and hold off on the VCH for a few weeks...

Then I'll have to start looking for a job again after band is over. :( The only way I'll be able to get it is if I don't have a job during fall semester after marching band.
    Jobs are usually the problem aren't they? It's a shame.

    On the septum front, I left a comment on the place I get pierced here's Facebook page asking how much it would cost to get it done and if it could be pierced with a circular barbell or retainer. Apparently it's 20 bucks with tax (so more like 25) plus with the tip. Now, they also said they don't pierce with retainers. I though that was a bit strange but maybe they just don't have them in stock ever because other people get it pierced with a circular or bcr. I don't mind being pierced with a circular barbell at all, especially because they will pierce at a 16g (that's the normal size for them apparently). Only thing that put me off is they called me Amanda instead of Alexandra..my name is right there, if you're going to try and be on my first name basis with me at least read it right! I really hope they can pierce with a diameter small enough to flip it up too.

    Haha wow! But that's good that you can get the jewelry and gauge you want, and $25 isn't bad at all! I'll probably be paying about $40-45 for mine.
    But my friend doesn't have the money to get her lip done so I think I'm just going to wait. My left nostril might need a little bit of time before I go putting another piercing right next to it anyway!

    Yeah it is pretty good for the jewelry and gauge I want and also considering it would be 40 at home.
    I think I'm just gonna have to ask for money one last time haha.

    Amy - Sakurachan, has pictures in her gallery of her medusa with a clear ball/bar on it i think.

    I still havnt taken my nape out. I'm hoping it will be fine soon, I'd hate to take it out if it was only just a bit irritated although i know its most likely growing out.
