So, a few weeks ago I delted facebook because I found myself being distracted by the nothingness that happens on the site. In this video, you will hear my roommates ridiculous reasoning to why I should still be on the site. Feel free to laugh. You will also see my dying process for the cotton dress….and my distractions in between. Feel free to laugh, again. Finally, you can see kids “dancin’ for change”, the work of my classmates, my skype date, my very “lived-in” room and one of the subways that I depend on every single day! Oh, btw this is one of my favorite songs —U2~ “It’s a Beautiful Day” <3
This has been a LONG week! Full of interning, applying to jobs, fittings and of course being goofy with my bff’s. Too many things going on, this week…I will let my video speak for me. (at the end of the movie is what happens after a long day of interning and schooling when all you want is Cold Stone and the line is around the store!—oh yea, that’s Martha and Grace!)
This weekend has been fun………..(insert sarcastic tone here)
Monday the 7th, my professor told our class that this coming Monday (the 14th) we will have a fit model come in to fit our first garments. Everyone in the class looked at each other and exhaled a stressful sigh. I don’t think anyone was remotely ready for what our professor had to say. I am posting a video of the “Low Down”- or what we have to get done/should have done already. Although she is right, this is when reality hit.
Friday night: dinner with friends, classroom until midnight.
Saturday: buy cotton fabric, half day in the classroom finishing patterns, rest of the day at home doing homework. (Finished basting my first garment and ready to be fitted on Monday!!!)
Sunday: other homework and buying groceries…it is about time I eat something remotely healthy.
Besides fashion, I love to eat, I love to be creative with food and eat healthy as often as I can. The highlight of my weekend was going grocery shopping at Whole Foods. I spent about an hour and a half looking around and getting the things I “needed”, including vitamins, bringing my bill to $120. Pshhh…being healthy is expensive! Anyways, for dinner, I made what I would call a half burger. Ezekiel bread toasted, a little mustard, burger (gorgonzola and sun dried tomatoes mixed in the beef), sautéed onions, spinach and mushrooms to top it off. It was delicious!!! Then I made gluten free brownies for dessert and was pleasantly surprised by how yummy they were!
….2 hours later, I recognize how much time I have wasted being obsessed with food and realize it is time to get back to work. My Spanish midterm isn’t going to take itself and either is my U.S. History quiz! Back to studying!!!
