A Tattooed World: Temping at Berklee College of Music  
Ah, the joy of being a student. I am sitting here in the Uchida Computer Lab at 921 Boylston Street. I am one of the eight temps here for add drop. The guy next to me is currently helping a student with an earring attached to a nose ring, who is wearing a tank with a fishnet shirt over it. His tattoos are showing up pretty clearly through the mesh. And I wonder why people keep asking me if I'm a student. Guess I look like one with my own multiple piercings and tattoos.

I am here until the 20th of September, and then I go back out into the real world. A world where people look at you strangely for wanting tattoos and to run a marathon. Which reminds me. The Boston Marathon has made it easier for people to enter (not people in their 20s and 30s, older people). But this still might be the year I run the Marathon.
