MMM ’13 and Graduation

Alright…so updates!  First off, I have been a little…preoccupied with life to completely embrace the MMM ’13 challenge.  However with a lot of my life stuff out-of-the-way, I hope to finish the month out strong!

I have a confession…I am horrible at remembering to take pictures when I should be taking them, like when I am wearing a MMM ’13 outfit.  But I can tell you that I wore a kinda crazy Hawaiian-esque shirt and a cute 80s throwback dress (t me that’s what it was. haha)

So…life stuff that happened; well the last two weeks I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying t finish all my schoolwork because last Saturday May 11th I graduated!  Now it’s on to being a real adult…hahaha or as I like to put it from

Being a starving college student to being a starving artist.

Which is what I will be for probably a long time…at least until I find another job.  This summer I get to work our summer theatre in the Costume Shop!  Exciting!  Definitely more on that later…when I actually get to start work.

Back to graduating…it was really cool and sad at the same time.  I really feel like I just figured out college and everything I am supposed to be doing there and now it’s over.  Hopefully I’ll figure out what I’m supposed to be doing with the next year before it’s over.  Walking on Saturday was an awesome experience, I got to sit next to my little sister and one of my oldest friends in the department which made concentrating on the speakers a little difficult.  All in all the pomp and circumstance was a tiny headache to put up with considering it made my parents super happy to see me walk.

After the ceremony we went out to Applebee’s which was delicious, and on Sunday we went to my favourite store, Goodwill!  I got a pair of pants, which I was in desperate need of and a wonderfully patterned shirt that I am going to re-fashion!


Let’s get a closer look at that pattern…Image

Isn’t it wonderful?!  I’m super excited!  I can’t wait to get my machine up and running and turn this shirt into something nifty!

As a ‘real adult’ I now get to have the wonderful experience of moving to another apartment, where I’ll be until August 2014.  It’s going to be different living in Morgantown, since it’s bigger than Fairmont and confusing for me to drive around…I’m hoping I’ll get used to it sooner rather than later, I guess we’ll see though.

Me-Made-May ’13 Participant!

So…I know I haven’t been the busiest little blogger around and that’s for a few reasons.  I’m easily distracted and pretty forgetful…I am sometimes so busy reading other blogs that I forget to do anything with mine.  That’s going to change!  Also I’m graduating in 16 (or 15 depending on your view of day counting) days!  Ah!!!  Totally not ready for real life!  Although I am definitely ready to be out of school.

Anywho, back to blogging etc. One of the blogs I have sent to my e-mail is who I think is quite wonderful!  I wish I had her fabric stash!  She has done several challenge-y type things and I have finally decided to jump on one!  Hence Me-Made-May ’13, which will be embodied by my personal pledge:

I, Kelly of lifeisjustduckie, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I endeavour to wear a self-stitched/knitted/refashioned article of clothing three times a week for the duration of May 2013.

I’m looking forward to participating! I tend to get stuck in the “I’ve made it now what?” camp and hopefully this will bring some garments out of the depths of my closet!

There’s still time to join the ranks if you are interested!

I’m a little nervous about it but still pretty excited.  During 11 days of the challenge I will be trying to graduate…so I will have to be creative and very determined.
