To start off, I just want to say that today was one of those days where I just thought about how happy I am that my major is journalism, and how I know it is for me. In high school I struggled with what I "wanted to do when I grew up", even though I always knew I wanted to be a writer, but never thought it was actually a possibility. Here I am though, in my fourth year of college and writing articles for school and my internship almost every day.
I know everyone says this is a tough degree to get, but I know it will be so worth it in the end. I was given the ability to write well for a reason.
Anyways, on to other things that are floating around in my mind. Last week Scott started using the old, but wonderful, sewing machine that his nana gave to him and two years ago. Since then he has surprised me with a lovely bag that he made out of his two favorite shirts (they were a little worn out so he felt he could part with them and turn them into something new for me), and an amazing apron out of this vintage sheet set that we bought at Goodwill Monday night. He's really getting good at sewing and is currently working on a other projects, but I can't wait to get my hands on the sewing machine so I can make something for him (I already have something in mind, and all the fabric cut out, I just need some alone time with the machine).
Here are a few pictures of the bag (very blurry and dark. Sorry!), and the amazing apron along with the crochet slouchy beret that i just finished making a few nights ago:
I will take a better picture of it and post it soon!
It has four pockets, one being for pens!
Back detail! The straps are made out of leftover fabric from ikea curtains.
Scott had to be involved in the photo taking fun! He's just so cute!
This week has been pretty great! All my classes are going well, and my internship is going great. On Wednesday they had a "Dogs (and Cat) Days of Summer" party and they had had yummy cupcakes that looked like puppy dogs! I've already had two things published on the Ira. A Fulton Schools of Engineering website and I have many more to come!
Tomorrow Scott and I are going to have our weekly morning coffee at Cartel, and then I will be at my internship until one. Hopefully tomorrow night we will go to the Mill's End poetry slam (3rd week in a row!) and maybe get some froyo.
Oh, and did I mention that Scott and I picked up "Daisy" by Brand New last night at Best Buy! I have been waiting for this CD since 2006 and am happy that they finally put out some new music. Brand New has been one of my favorite bands since early high school days, and will forever have a place in my heart. If you haven't checked out their new CD I highly suggest you either go pick it up at your local record store, or listen to it in its entirety on their myspace.
For now I will leave you with a few images that I have found just adorable lately:
GINA if you're reading this, you should show Elizabeth this picture. When I found it I instantly thought of her. She knows why :]
I'm in love with this quote, anybody know where it came from?
Hope everyone is having a lovely Thursday night!
