I went to the Django birthday party and it changed my life. Ok, maybe that's a bit extreme. But, I am now on a quest to learn code! I have requested several books from my library on HTML, CSS, Django, and Python so that I can work my way through the Hello Web App book. Creating something out of nothing is just so irresistibly awesome, that I can't not do it! I have plans later this week to hit the local library and start learning. I have no idea what I'm going to do with this knowledge, but "Build Cool Shit" seems to be enough of a goal at the moment.
LOL... As if online shopping could ever truly fail you. I'm a self-proclaimed online shopping addict. I'm genuinely sad when I return home after work and there isn't a present that I've ordered for myself waiting at my door. They say retail therapy is cheaper than a psychologist... my bank account would beg to differ.
So it was after a particularly stressful day at work that ended with ZERO packages waiting at my front door, that I took to the internet to find the perfect top to wear with my new jeans. (I bought the jeans IRL, because, you know, priorities.) I probably spent hours scouring the internet. Nothing. And then it hit me.. make it yourself! So I found an old notebook and I started sketching. I have no idea the "proper" way to do said sketches. But, I now have a notebook completely full of designs for my new wardrobe. The next step? Invest in a sewing machine. I hope to post my attempts at clothes making here when ever that comes to be. I had a quick sewing lesson with my mom recently, it's going to be a challenge. #bringiton
