I'm officially done with the Spring 2014 semester, thank god! I took my last final on June 9th for biological anthropology and I know I aced it. My grades are already in for Spring and I'm pleased to tell you I passed with A's and B's. But that was more of a suprise than anything because up until finals began, I was failing two classes. And I don't mean failing but actually close to getting a D, I mean, legitimately failing them. I was super stressed about all my classes as soon as spring break finished. I had to take a few days off of work to catch up in the classes that I was failing, and even then, I didn't know if the work I had done would be enough to give me a passing grade.
Literature club ended well, and I'm glad I joined it. Made a couple of super awesome new friends. I'm thinking about staying next semester and running for VP. HEY NOW!
For Merchandising we had to create a whole collection for American Apparel. Drawing croquis, flats, making inspiration and concept boards, filling out line lists, size spec sheets and a myriad of other things that I'll probably do a separate post on later, but we also had to reconstruct a garment to be our prototype for said collection. Wanna know what I did? I decided I was going to create a garment FROM SCRATCH. Yep, that kimono I'm wearing in the picture up there, I made it. From scratch. And handsewn. I actually really like the way it turned out but I think I'm going to make another one with the stuff that I learned from making the first.
Now that that's done though, I'm now officially one week into Summer I taking, a business class. Wish me the best of luck for this class for the next month.
