In the beginning..

Well, I'm really not completely sure what I want to write in this first entry, because I tend to be very bad at things that I just start. I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I just wanted to warn you just in case. Also, even though this is a blog about my education in fashion, I'm just a beginner. I'm not completely freakin' up to date on happenings in the fashion world, but I'm really hoping to get there as I progress in my education.

Right now, things are just starting to slow down, but also speeding up at the same time. I have like, 3 projects due within 2 weeks and I'm starting to feel overwhelmed. I know that some people have it worse, but everyone has their own levels of frustration that they can deal with. I'm actually only in one actual fashion course this semester, but the other ones I'm taking are required for the major I'm in, which is called Fashion Communications. It's basically a Communications major but with Fashion as a focus. Right now i'm thinking Fashion Photography might be cool, but we'll see.

My fashion course is pretty much just a base course for every kind of fashion major. It teaches about the fashion industry, and eventually we'll be learning more about companies and designers. That's the part I'm REALLY looking forward to. That way I'll feel like I know a little more than I do now, haha.

Now that I think of it though, I do have another fashion course. It just doesn't start til October. It's a modeling class. Yes, modeling. I am interested. I'm trying out for the modeling group in about a week, which is basically a group of girls that gets chosen to model for the fashion shows here at school, for the designing majors to use for the clothes they design. Cool, huh? Anyway I'm really excited. Not sure if I'll make it, but it's definitely worth a shot. Who knows, maybe I'll decide to do that instead? That would be a blast. Getting to wear a bunch of pretty stuff. Buuuut we all know how it is out there.. you gotta look perfect. And I'll tell you what, I am NOT perfect by any means. It does make me feel good that most models are flat chested... yay for people to fit in with!!! =)

So yeah. That's basically all for now. I'll update more as the semester goes on, and hopefully there will be more in depth entries. Especially about the modeling group.

Now I just gotta wait for American Eagle to get back to me for my retailer project in my fashion class..
