I can't believe it. Barring an act of Zeus, in less than 24 hours I'll be back in school!
|Can you find me in this photo? (Hint: I'm not the blonde in the gold dress.)|
Of course, this is only one evening class, Menswear Sewing, at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and it only meets once a week (from tomorrow through May). Today I went and stood on line to get my photo ID. I found myself filled with questions.
1) Am I going to be the oldest one in class -- by decades?
2) Is this going to end up taking too much of my time or not enough?
3) Why am I doing this again?
I think ambivalence is healthy, don't you?
It's been a while, but I think I already have just about everything I'll need.
Pencil Case. Check!
Three-ring Binder. Check!
Crayola Crayon Box. Check!
Lunch Box and Thermos. Check!
New Outfit. Check!
Have I forgotten anything?
While I won't be sending live Tweets from class, I do intend to provide an ongoing description of my class experience, assuming it doesn't produce yawns (my descriptions I mean, not the class). Just for blog content alone, it'll be worth it!
I really don't have any expectations, which of course is very different from having low expectations. I simply know absolutely nothing about the class beyond the brief description offered in the catalog.
I do hope nobody blows spitballs at me or pulls my pigtails...
Have a great day, everybody!
