Dressmaking 101: School Uniform

I am very keen when it comes to fabric. Maybe because of what I have learned form high school. I studied in a vocational high school and when we reached third year, we have to choose our major; I took dressmaking. I knew it will be difficult for me because the materials needed were costly. However, I thought of taking the risk and the universe will do the rest. LOL!

Anyway, after high school, I didn't get a chance to pedal a dressmaking machine again. I do some sewing but just by the hand and those were just minor repairs. 

Nowadays, I tend to be picky on what to wear. I don't follow fashion trend, I just wear what I am comfortable with but sometimes, the increase and decrease of weight makes me spend more on clothes adding the fact that I am choosy with the kind of fabric. I hate shopping but when I do, I read the details. With regards to those, I thought of sewing again. I'll make my own clothes and perhaps if I have more time, it will be a profitable one. The sewing machine is just sitting in the corner anyway, might as well make it a money-making machine but I still need practice.

Will It Bring Peace?

On May 15, 2015 Dzhokhar Tsarnaev who was one of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing was convicted by a federal jury to death. The major Boston said in a statement that he hopes that this judgement will give a small amount of closure to the victims. 

There were many people who died and were severely injured during the Boston bombing.  The death of Tsarnaev had resulted into many different opinions whether this will make the victims and their families at peace. It was mentioned in the article Does death penalty bring closure? that some of them felt relief after his death but others didn't.

A Chapter Worth Reading

"I wish I could lay down beside you when the day is done. And wake up to your face against the morning sun. But like everything I've ever known, you'll disappear one day..." -Adele

Life is temporary and so is everything it has to offer. Thankful I am for the ups and downs life has given me for I believe money can never buy those experiences.

A certain chapter in my life when I got to meet someone who had opened me up to so many possibilities and even emotions. I learned to hold on to miracles. Despite of my attitude, he has tried to understand me. Unfortunately, as I have said, everything is temporary and he being a part of my life maybe as well temporary.

Even In A Dream

The sun nearly setting is blinding her. She's alone. She got up and realized she's alone. He was just there an hour ago.

She started looking for him. They boarded the ship together but he was nowhere to be found. He must have left while she was taking a nap. She went to the dining area but he wasn't there. She asked the cabin crew assigned to their cabin if he noticed him went somewhere but he didn't see him either. Her tears started to fall. People were staring at her for she seems to be a lost girl on a big ship.  She went to the bar, he might be there drinking while relaxing but no one was there either. She remembered, he might have brought his phone with him so she called; it rang for several times but no answer. She called again, this time he answered "I am at the pool" and he was laughing. Why did you leave while I was sleeping? , she asked. He hung up.

Short story: Abandoned

A tree that caught my attention in a heavy traffic

It stood there alone and withering to death.

In a garden of the unknown, there was once a tiny beautiful purple flower. Butterflies seem to like it for most of them never forget to perch onto it. It blossoms pretty well that it attracted one distinct butterfly.  Everyday, the butterfly visits the flower while the latter waits for it patiently. In a short period of time, they shared a lot of things within the vast garden; the butterfly telling stories about the beauty of other gardens and the flower listens amusingly. 

One day, the butterfly didn’t come and the flower felt a pang in its whole being.  It was worried something horrible happened to it and it can’t help but cry with the idea.  It was helpless because it doesn’t have the ability to move around and find it.
