Oh my. This has been a long, long, long week. There is no time to even breathe.
Our school had the preliminary round of ‘Recycle Runway’ fashion show yesterday. Its a different kind of a show. Students from grade 9, 10 and 11 can design and make their own dresses and bags from recycled or waste materials. The best twenty dresses and bags will be selected for the next round. Its all about making fashion out of waste. Last time, I didn’t participate but this time, my friends and I decided to do it. We designed a dress (mainly my friends awesome design) out of painted shells, purple chocolate wrappers and old Cd’s. After we finished, the dress looked AMAZING. We made our bag using and old boot. An ankle length boot actually. It didn’t quite come out like we intended but it was still a nice clutch/purse. Somehow, I ended up as the model. (I have no idea how or why I agreed to do it but I did. And I was an awesome model.) Anyhow, the show was yesterday. Everything went great. I walked the ramp in my heels without falling, a BIG achievement for someone who doesn’t wear heels often. In fact, who NEVER wears heels. I’m all about being comfortable. Actually, compared to other people’s heels, mine were nothing. They had like, heels higher that my index finger. We don’t know the results of the show yet. But I’m just happy we participated because it was a lot of fun. Of course, there were moments when we had designed the dress, but had no idea how to make it. We had actually considered backing out. But we didn’t and I’m glad we participated. It was an experience.
Yesterday was a fun day and today was awful. I got yelled at by my teacher for…..something, which I don’t want to elaborate. Anyway, she said a lot of things which were mean and I’m really sad and depressed because of that. I admit I had done wrong but the fault wasn’t completely mine. Both of us were at fault. I just feel really bad about it now. I apologized to the teacher but still. All of that is just heavy on my mind. I’m also doing nanowrimo this year and I’m really behind on my word count.
So off I go to drown my sorrows in writing and pictures of Damon Salvatore.
