other students come home from NY today.. if i have to spend the next 2 weeks looking at pictures and hearing stories, i'm going to pluck my eyeballs out with my own two hands, and shove them into my ears
i wish having this weekend off really meant i could be super lazy on the couch watching heinous amounts of arrested development on netflix. however, it does not… i am planning a surprise visit for spencer next weekend, and have his best friends coming in from home, meaning we have to clean our entire house.
so on the list for today is tons and tons of laundry and cleaning
a trip to the dollar store to buy some organizing bins, and a shower curtain liner
a trip down to work to make a deposit for the store
go to fit4less to (finally) pick up my pass
and go to fabricland to buy allllll the fabrics! going to try to get in some sewing today if i can find my sewing machine in the storage room.
so much to do so i can have a relaxing week, NEXT week
a lot of the reasons spencer isn’t getting jobs, are because the recruiters think he’s too nervous because he stutters. for anyone who is unaware spencer (my bf) has a natural stutter.. it’s not major, but it definitely comes out naturally, maybe a touch more if he’s excited or you’re sitting there waiting intently on his response.
so here lies his problem… he’s too proud to flat out say “i have a stutter” when people ask what his weaknesses are/in general interviews. he learned in one of his classes he can claim it as a disability on an application, but he doesn’t really want to look like he’s fishing for something. i personally think he should mention it’s not a nervous habit it’s natural, that or get speech therapy.
it’s clear this is going to affect him getting a professional job, and him not having a good job is hindering our relationship because his confidence is shot and his stress levels are through the roof.
like of all the things we buy on a day-to-day basis, i bet a lot of us could make a lot of them.. and save yourself some money… and get exactly what you want.. and feel really good about yourself!
browsing all these clothes and prints on tumblr and pinterest and etsy and shit just make me really want to slow my roll on the money spending train, and get back into the DIY.. i don’t mean total hippy, but why am i not making my own shirts/shorts/skirts/dresses? i know how…
need to get inspired and make a list of things to make!
