It seems that there are many things going on right now in my life that have gone un-posted on this masterfully orchestrated corner of the internet. Being the ridiculously good dramatic writer that I am, I’ve left many-a-cliff-hanger unanswered. Where I’m going to college, for example, or the status of my senior project, perhaps. These and others, I know, have probably kept you up late at night tossing and turning wondering “WHAT IS GOING ON WITH JULIA’S LIFE!?!” Well, friends, the wait is over. I am now going to answer all of your burning questions.
School: I have chosen to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design this fall! Like I’ve mentioned before, it was an extremely hard decision because both are such great schools in great locations offering great opportunities, but eventually, I settled on the fact that Parsons is just too much of a stretch financially and I don’t think it’d be wise to spend the amazing gift of money for a college education my parents have given me in a way that might compromise my future financial situation. Needless to say, it did take a couple days to get used to the idea because I think I had gotten my heart so set on Parsons so suddenly, but the more I think about it, the more I realize what a great situation this really is turning out to be and I’m becoming more and more excited about the next four years. So basically: Yay! I’m going to SCAD! 🙂
Senior Project: My senior project could truly not be going any better. I really, for the first time, started to put my head down and do a lot of sewing this weekend and I was able to finish a couple of pieces which is encouraging. The best part is that besides the fact that I am getting things done and therefore am able to check them off my mental stress list, I am super super proud of the work that I am doing and the way the clothes are turning out. I’ve been trying to really make it a point to make these the best quality of clothes I’ve ever made and so far I feel like they are. If I continue on at the pace that I’ve been going, not only will I finish with plenty of time, but I may also (fingers crossed) have time to crank out a few more pieces that I’ve conjured up in my head while I’ve been sewing. Five looks is a lot, but I’ve got about a million and half more ideas that I would love to see come to life. I don’t have any pictures to put up yet and I kind of want to keep them under wraps until they are all done and I can make the grand reveal, but I will put up a picture that has been a major part of the inspiration of the clothes. This is a still from Meet Me in St. Louis which is not only an amazing movie, but also has genius costuming. When I watched it for the 8,654th time this last fall, not only did it make me laugh, cry and think about my life like it always does, but it made me realize how many pieces of clothes I wanted to pull out of the TV and wear. A lot of the pieces in my collection have been inspired by clothes in the movie. Hopefully, you can let you imagination run wild and maybe when I do show the looks, you can relate them to this picture in some way.
Other unanswered questions about my life will now be answered below:
1. Yes, I do wake-up looking this naturally beautiful.
2. It is true, Chace Crawford did ask me out and I turned him down.
3. I made those brownies (see below) and they were quite disappointing, I must say. That picture makes them look absolutely amazing and once again, photography really dooped me.
4. I am so infinitely happy with my life that I can barely stand it sometimes.
