My birthday and other sorts

“Dreams have a habit of coming true when you least expect it – never lose faith, even the impossible dreams can become a reality if you commit to making them so.”

  -Deb Ivarsson

So, my art history class, I think, will end up being fun.  My teacher is incredibly smiley and energetic, so I think that will lessen the pain of having a night class haha.  I’m saying this now because I didn’t have a chance to tell you guys last time~

In other news, I had a fun celebration at Nakashima’s Friday in lieu of my birthday Saturday.  Always an entertaining time going to my favorite hibachi grill in Green Bay.  Our chef was hilarious and very amusing, and there were quite a few dirty jokes being said.  All in good fun, though!  What was strange is that during the meal, after the chef had left, I got a RAVE alert text message saying that if you were on campus, you were to lock your room and remain there until further notice.  Apparently there was a man who had threatened a girl in the dorms with a gun (i am later told it was possibly the fourth floor….which is the floor I usually reside <__>).  She was able to escape and notify police.  They arrested a man a couple blocks west of the school.  A short blurb http://www.cbs58.com/news/local-news/Student-threatened-with-gun-at-Mount-Mary-University-241959401.html

 

Other then that craziness, the rest of the weekend was fine (considering I was home and not at school.  Thankfully.)  My birthday was spent being lazy, no corset or anything, and pretty much lounging in comfy clothes.  I was able to get a fitting, and some crafting, done however.  So the day wasn’t completely wasted!  Also got to spend some much needed time with the boyfriend.  I consider myself quite lucky to have such a loving and quirky boyfriend.

 

With my blocks for Sarah ready, I was able to get quite a bit done this morning in Tailoring.

Not too bad.  I had to adjust a few things such as crotch depth, where the pants would fall (instead of at waist, they’ll hit about high hip), and adjust the inseam curve.  All that’s left before a test fit is cut the two sections apart, add paper where I cut to create seam allowances, and I’ll be good to go.  I think I may be able to use my friend Janelle, who is in the same class, as a test fit model.  She has very similar measurements to Sarah.

 

Nice thing about today is that classes have been cancelled from 4:30 today until 4:30pm tomorrow.  Gives me time to catch up on my internship presentation which I have to do Wednesday, and other homework I’ve managed to slack off on already n___n; I need to get my act together.  Oi.  It’ll come eventually.
