So I made it through the end of my first semester of school. I am pretty sure I've never had to work so hard as I did over the past 3 months. Architecture school is serious business. I like it, but I am a little sad that I don't have time to enjoy the primary reasons I stayed in Chicago: my friends. There isn't much I can do about it, I try to emerge from my Architecture world as often as I can to meet up with them, but even when I do I'm really out of the loop and out of place. Oh well.
Since Monday I have spent time with my cousin who was visiting and then today I spent all day at home. Lazy? Maybe. But I did almost 75% of the things I said I wanted to do when I had time during break!! I sorted and filed my important documents, wrapped some presents, and made a cover for my all important Moleskine notebook. The first sewing I've been able to do in 3 months, it was a really quick and simple project and so so so enjoyable!! I used the tutorial here by Mr. Monkeysuit and some Floragraphix fabric I've had for almost a year for both the cover and lining. I really like how it turned out. My other to-do is to craft more over the next month of my Christmas break and tell you allll about it!!
