Outfit

The outfit that I wore today was more casual than usual. I hardly ever wear jeans, probably only a couple of times in the whole year and skirts are more my style. But its good to try some different styles and to change my look occassionally. I also thought that my panda top would look better with jeans because a high waisted skirt would cover most of the panda's body. I like pandas, although I'm not entirely sure why. I bought this top this week from Just Jeans. I need to stop spending money on clothes.

Today was my last day of holidays and I'm returning to university tomorrow. I cannot believe how fast the last six weeks went. I know that is always the case with holidays, but even more so this time. It is just crazy to think about where the time has gone. Its very hard to be on holiday and being able to do whatever I want, and then needing to be in an intense, studious mood by tomorrow morning. I also don't feel ready to go back to studying because I haven't fully dealt with Nana's death. Although it was three weeks ago, I wish I had more time to reflect on things without having to worry about study. I wish the holidays would continue for a bit longer, although I am grateful for the time that I had.

This semester I am studying Criminal Law, Tort Law, Information Systems and Organisation, Planning and Control. I'm not looking forward to any of them. I think criminal law could be interesting but its going to be so much work. The size of the criminal law text book has been concerning me for the last couple of weeks.

I had a very fun weekend and it was lovely to finish the holidays in this way. I did some shopping and went out for dinner a couple of times. Today I learned how to sew and I made a skirt. Rydog's mum taught me. She is a good friend and it was nice of her to help me. It wasn't as difficult as I expected because she divided the tasks into small steps. I had no idea how to use a sewing machine this morning and I have never done anything like this before so I progressed a lot today. It was enjoyable and its a good skill to have. I like the fact that no one else will have the same skirt as me. I'd like to do it again sometime and improve my skills.

Wow that skirt is amazing! I had textiles lessons for three years and relatives have repeatedly tried to teach me how to sew. I'm too impatient and lazy!
