Today was a good day in regards to going forward in my life. I now have an internship at an art gallery for my Arts Management degree! I also had my first meeting of my Advanced Conservation class and it seems like it will be really neat. I have already chosen my garment that I will be working on for my final project for the class - it is a 1920's beaded chiffon dress that has a torn sleeve. I will get to create a sleeve under-support for it and stitch it in so the dress will then be stable enough to be dressed on a mannequin. I'm really excited about that and I think I am going to really enjoy that class! The art gallery sounds like it will be really great as well. I had my interview today and realy enjoyed it, actually!

Today was just a day that really seemed to propel everything forward. And that makes me happy.

I had almost forgotten what FIT was like, having not been there for months - and this is also the start of the semester where people are actually around and everyone is about and about and actually going to class. 27th Street was filled with FIT students - it's such a surreal environment cause, I mean, come on, we're fashion students - and the things that everyone is wearing are just, well, neat. It's not even that they're all self-designed and unique, but there is some of that too. It's just a very different atmosphere than my MSU campus at the start of the semester. MSU is also abundant with males - which FIT lacks. But there were a lot of pretty flowy summery dresses and big sunglasses! (Which is what I generally wear too, so in a way, I fit right in) However, today I was in summery striped suit for my interview which wasn't the most comfortable, but I was wearing fun cheetah ballet flats, haha.

Bed time now though. I have a lot of reading already for the semester. I also need to buy a planner to keep track of all my homework assignments. Dave was busy this evening doing reading for his class, so I didn't get to see him. :(

I'm also close to 100 pages in on The Picture of Dorian Gray. I read it a lot on the commute out of the city today!!

I just finished Dorian Gray! It was soooo good, and quite surprising as well! How do you like it so far?

It's good! It's a little "romantic" and they sometimes come to odd conclusions from like, a line of dialogue, but it's enjoyable!
