Friendships

Hi guys! 10 weeks should feel like a long time, but these weeks have gone by so quickly. With only two classes left, the friendships that have been formed is what I will miss so much. FIT is fabulous because you are brought together with people who share your interests. This is so different from school because there are very few people who have an interest in what I do. Being in a classroom for hours every Saturday with similar, yet different people is so amazing. I know that I will still keep in contact with the friends I have made after these two classes, and I will hopefully see them again. In my first class, sewing, it is fun to sit at a machine next to friends and sew & talk. Since we have extra time in class, my friend and I made shirts that we taught ourselves to make. It was fun discovering what we could do and what we had learned. It is also really nice to be in a classroom filled with so many sewing machines, it just makes me happy! In my second class, drawing the fashion figure, we have so much fun. I think I have made a new friend every class! Our teacher is always cracking jokes, and makes us all laugh. In this class, the ages range from 14-20. It is cool to talk to juniors about their experience and ask them advice for what I should do. I look forward to my last two classes, but I don’t want them to be over!

Hang Outs

Coming in from the city and staying for at least 8 hours can be tiring, but everything is worth every ounce of energy. It is so exciting waking up (at 6 A.M.!) on Saturday mornings knowing I am coming to be with new friends and to do what I love. As much as I love my classes, it is nice that we get 15 minute breaks in the middle of each class, and an hour lunch break in between my two classes.

For the 15 minute breaks, the perfect place to go is Starbucks. I usually go with friends during both breaks to grab a drink to have before returning to class.  It is the perfect place to go because it is right across the street and convenient (if the lines aren’t out the door!)IMG_3639

Here is a photo of some friends on our way to Starbucks!

For lunch my friend and I go to the perfect place- Whole Foods! I never thought about going there for lunch, but they have a salad bar which has everything imaginable- I love it. Whole Foods is only 3 blocks away, so we go and it takes about 20 minutes to get there, get our food, and get back. That leaves us 40 whole minutes to get back and eat. We either eat in the lobby or outside if its nice! IMG_3211

 

This is my friend, Larson and I after eating our Whole Foods in the lobby. (BTW – if you’re on snapchat, check out the geotag for FIT) I cannot believe there is only three classes left! :( Time flies when your having fun!
