January Update (NY Trip Postings, Interview with Jinxi, and more)

The spring semester started earlier this week. I am taking five classes this time...yikes! If I manage to pass all my classes, pass a math competency test (and retain my sanity) I will be graduating this spring with AA degrees in fashion design and fashion merchandising. It will be nice to have something to show for the past, um, 4-5ish years of community college. Even if it is two almost useless degrees.

What's next? I may continue going to school to take more business classes, maybe get a business degree. Worrying about the future just stresses me out, so I'm trying to not think about it until the time comes to make more decisions. Right now I am just trying to focus on getting through all my classes. I've somehow managed to maintain a 3.9 GPA, which means my perfectionist side will be stressing out about receiving any grade less than an A. Anybody want to trade brains with me? I drive myself nuts sometimes.

Anyways, earlier this month I was interviewed by Jinxi, writer/vegan/tattoo collector/all-around awesome person. You can find the interview on her blog, here's the link:

I also finally managed to finish my write-ups of my trip to New York last year. Here are links to all the postings, complete with lots of pictures:

NYC Fashion Industry Trip (Part 3)

Any sewing or fashion design nerd should find something of interest in these posts. I spent a lot of time on them, so I would appreciate any comments!

Since I will be so busy with school over the next four months, I probably won't have time to update my website as much as I would like. If I have any spare time, I will try to make some new one-of-a-kind outfits to put up for sale. A while ago I promised a friend of mine that I would make a bunch of polka-dot themed outfits that she could model, because she loves polka-dots. Now she won't stop annoying me about it. So I might start on that soon!

My house is having another basement show tomorrow night. I think the Secretions might be shooting a video of it, for their new song "Casa de Chaos". This should be a lot of fun!

Well, now I'm off to do more homework. It never ends!
