Last night i stayed up until 3 in the morning working on my swatch book. it's this book for textiles, and let me tell you that it is annoying as heck. SHEESH i am an apparel design major, but i don't think anyone should have to go through what i had to. It's just this huge book that has swatches in it, that tell you the fiber content, what it's made from and other random crap. it's not pointless, but i wish it was so i wouldn't have to go through all that trouble. 198 swatches. taping it in, writing the name, number, and fiber content. UGH. it's a good thing i love fabric i guess. Oh here is a page in my lookbook!

If i never knew what the word "busy" meant, i definitely do now. I am taking 14 hours in college. "Oh that's not too bad." people say... well to them i say "it is if 4 of them have at least 2 hours worth of labs." 4 labs. which means every day i have at least 1 class that lasts about 3 hours. As an Apparel Design major it is great. I am so excited for my classes, but 4 Labs??? (INSANITY) My labs are Textiles (chemistry based class), Chemistry (KILL ME), Design Theory (basically a Fashion/Art class), and Apparel Production ( a sewing class)
Meet the most difficult device ever. The Industrial Serger. Took me 30 minutes to thread it.
To all you fashion majors, i understand your pain. And it's only been a week of school.
