Friday The Thirteenth Update

Happy Friday The Thirteenth, everybody. It's my two and a half year anniversary with my boyfriend, Joe, today. Unfortunately, he has work most of the day today, so we went out for lunch yesterday before he had class. We went to an Irish pub. I wore a Punk Hogwarts student outfit yesterday. I don't have pictures, but I wore my Ravenclaw tie over a black dress shirt, my black jean skirt with my "diy or die" patch I just painted, blue and black striped tights, and my trusty Doc Martens. 
I love this thing. I'm a Ravenclaw, but my Hogwarts letter was lost in the mail.

Yay for home-made patches. That's the best way to go, in my opinion.
I also went out for coffee with my friend, Justean, like we do every Thursday. I went to go use the restroom, and I found this on the door of the toilet stall:
It's really neat looking. Below the symbol, there appears to be some writing in runes. Can anybody tell me what this means? I'd really like to find out. If it doesn't mean anything, it might just be the work of some of those dodgy hipsters in black. They tend to gravitate towards triangles and "Satanic" imagery for whatever reason. The Greater Atlanta area has a large hipster population, and the local coffee shop is no exception. I suppose it's because a lot of bands come here, and we have a bunch of trendy stores and consignment shops. Anyway, I didn't mean to get off track.

I hope everyone plans on doing something adventurous this Friday The Thirteenth. There's an old legend where I live about a certain statue in a certain cemetery. You run around the statue thirteen times counter clockwise at the stroke of midnight on Friday The Thirteenth and ask, "Mary, Mary, what happened to your children?"  If you do this correctly, supposedly she will cry.
This is Mary:

Good luck, everyone!

    S sun cycle; H hail/snow; A the steadfast ash; G gifts and partnership; R trials and journeys; T the figure of Tyr

    With regards to inverted 'grams and crosses? I don't even.

    1. Thanks for the help. I'd love to learn runes one day. So is it safe to go with the dodgy hipsters theory?

  3. it seems like the work of hipster-goths to me (you know, the ones who do the "goth" style, but know nothing about goth music etc.)
    i don't even know how it got popular with hipsters..probably because they want to look edgy and "satanic" or something.

    1. You're probably right. That's what I meant by "dodgy hipsters in black." haha
