‎"I think there is beauty in everything. What 'normal' people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it" -Alexander McQueen

Last week I finally decided I wanted to do fashion school in New York. I was pretty excited to find out the cost was decent, but saddened when I found out I needed more to meet requirements. So I put applying on hold for now. I basically need a portfolio. In other words, I have to somewhat be able to draw, mind you, I can't even draw stick figures haha. I also need to be able to sew, and have a 3.0 GPA as well. So after 2 days of moping around, I decided not to feel sorry for myself and do something about it. I asked my grandmother to give me sewing lessons, I'm going to youtube videos on how to draw, and before I graduate this term, I'm going to take an elective drawing class to hopefully raise my GPA while getting drawing lessons. NEVER STOP CHASING YOUR DREAMS!
