Not gonna lie, I sat down for a good half hour tonight and procrastinated over what to blog. And then I saw this post by Debi. And thought y’know what, why not just chat? Her post was so so so lovely and motivational blog-wise. Drivel seems to go down well here, so more drivel it is!
I’ve spent god knows how many hours this week working on my final piece for textiles, and thankfully it’s finally (almost) done. My whole class went into college on our study day and I came home never wanting to sew another stitch again. Lasted until the following day, when I was whizzing my corset through the sewing machine once again. Deadline stresses aside, it was actually quite fun being with my textiles and arty girls all day, we had a right laugh! I love how we’ve only actually known each other for a relatively short time but get on so well. Every single arts student was in on our day off, we had the radio on full, the art department resembled a bombsite by the time we left but final pieces look good so hey. Once mine’s 100% finished I’ll bring it home (somehow, could be interesting on the bus) and take a few photos to share with you guys.
I basically feel like I’ve just been between college and dancing this week! At the minute I’m dancing a couple times per week, as our show’s coming up pretty soon so lots of practice to be done. Hasn’t left much time for a great deal else during the week but left my weekend free at least, small mercies! Of course I’ve still managed to waste time endlessly browsing Pinterest. Of course. It’s for inspiration! Looking at summery stuff whilst there’s a (admittedly feeble) layer of snow on the ground, no surprises there. SS15 board is underway already. You can probably tell from my board that I’ve been obsessing over white, white and more white. Maybe I’m maturing (lol) into a love of looks devoid of colour. I’ve already decided that my next textiles final piece for unit 2 is gonna be all white and textural and fancy. We haven’t even been given the bloody theme yet but I know it’s gonna be white! Slightly backwards logic there maybe but you know me. 🙂
As far as workouts go, it seems that every time I tell myself I’m gonna have a ‘good week’, I have a mediocre one, and every time I don’t set my goals too high, I surprise myself. This week fell into mediocre territory, but I’ve had enough stuff to get on with at home that it’s not the end of the world. Basically my motivational self lost to my “you need the sleep” self in that little internal debate you have when your early alarm goes off. Deciding ‘I’ll just have 5 more minutes’ ended in falling back asleep for an hour. I’m out like a light, it’s ridiculous!
On top of all that, we’re moving house very soon so busy, busy times! Tell me something random about your week so far. 🙂
