How long are you supposed to wait to stretch your septum to the next size?
Wait until your initial piercing is fully healed. Then the fistula (piercing hole) will loosen around the jewelry, and the next size should just slide right in without a taper. If it doesn’t go in, then your septum isn’t ready. It usually takes about a month for each step.
The jumps between sizes after 8g are a bit bigger, so you’ll want to either purchase no-flare in-between sizes (7g, 5g, et cetera) or use tape to stretch.
Just got a call about someone interested in my photo editing services — yesssss what a good way to end an already-good week.
Loc knot-out results!
Turns out the struggle was worth it! I was apprehensive because I’d never seen anyone with straight bangs and curly locks, but I love how it came out.
Hahaha, I just lost two followers over that video, but it was so worth it.

Hey, thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it!
In Anselm’s terms, God cannot be evil—you’re right. Anselm, inspired by Augustine, was famous for his “ontological proof” for the existence of God. The first premise of the proof was his definition of God: “God is that which nothing greater can be conceived”—i.e., he is perfect.
While this is a popular definition for God, it is not the only definition. So I think there are certainly definitions out there that could allow God to exist with imperfection. However, there is no Judeo-Christian definition that fits that, so with Judeo-Christian discourse, it is a given that God does no evil.
Despite that, I never said God was evil. But the purpose of the post was to explain how Augustine’s philosophy doesn’t adequately explain away potential responsibilities for evil.
As a side note, though, I don’t think the Judeo-Christian God could canonically be described as an amoral agent. This is because ”The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and kind in all his deeds” (Psalm 145:17; God does not tempt to sin) and “God is not [the author] of confusion, but of peace” (1 Corinthians 14:33; God does not confuse). If God’s mysteries included amoral action that may be linked with our conception of the manifestation of sin, I would call that an involvement with confusion, not peace.
So I agree that you are right: For the purposes of discussion God must be considered all-good, and this is the task apologetics must tackle. But my position remains that Augustine’s account was insufficient.
I would love to read that.
I ended up being able to stretch the topic out across five pages, but I’ll try to keep it short here! I’m going to tag jams-world while I’m at it, just because I know he might enjoy this.
