“The first one I got on my eighteenth birthday.  It was more of a spur of the moment thing with my second one. I didn’t even know I was going to get it until I was on the way to the tattoo artist.  I told my parents that I was going Christmas shopping, and that was my plans. I have ‘Veni, vidi, vici’ and ‘tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.’ ‘Veni, vidi, vici’ is from ‘Julius Caesar,’ which is the play that we read when Mrs. Cornish was here. It was one of the main quotes in it, and it means, ‘I came, I saw, I conquered.’ This year in Mrs. Yates’s class, we read ‘Macbeth’ and one of his famous lines was ‘tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.’

“I plan to get one from every Shakespeare play. Not a lot of people understand what he’s writing all of the time, and I am somebody who can actually read it and understand it. I find a few of them that I don’t really care for, but I like most of them. I’ve just always liked Shakespeare. Even the ones that I didn’t like, I would still read them because I liked how he wrote, and his style of writing.”
