Week 6, part 2: delight

I love my new tattoo.

I love it so much. I keep admiring it in the mirror during dance class. Whenever there's a free moment, I am looking at myself.

Which is weird.

I am not unaccustomed to self-admiration. I admire many things that I am or do. But I'm not used to admiring the way I look in a mirror. I look in the mirror and aim for yeah, okay. Sometimes, I manage to achieve better than before. Taking delight in my appearance, even this one small part of my appearance, is a strange and new experience.
