I always wanted to be a badass bitch, a tattooed drummer for a 90's rock band like Garbage or Hole however my parents didn't think it was suitable for a young lady to take drumming lessons so they sent my brother instead. I managed to sneak a tattoo onto my wrist at seventeen and the only reason they didn't flip out was because I was an emotional wreckage after my gran died and it has her name in it, 'Vida'. I used the birthday money they gave me to get inked. They weren't very impressed to say the least.
But then on my maiden voyage of rebellion I took a responsible turn and got really good at vaccuming and helping my brother study for his matric exams. (Long story there, I've told you this before.)
