off to a great start!

interning this week has been great so far.... lots of fun errands to great shops around town... a new designer started at the office and is quickly becoming one of my favorites by giving me good tasks...  i spent most of tuesday on the hunt for the perfect rug for a client's closet. mind you, this closet is larger than my living room. QUITE a bit larger than my living room... someday.....

a big highlight of my day was that i was wearing a new necklace that i slaved over in my metal-smithing class for the past month and received many compliments on it... my fellow classmates are so amazingly talented and have been turning out creations that i could only dream of making.... i decided to challenge myself this term and really step it up and for once i was finally able to make something that i felt looks as cool in person as it did in my imagination! so, i wore it to work on tuesday and THE designer (who happens to be one of the most fashionable people i have ever met) complimented me on it multiple times during the day and was very impressed when i mentioned that i designed it and made it.  it made the burn mark that is still healing on my thumb that much more worthwhile! yeah, i am still a little accident prone in my creative classes and while making this necklace i unfortunately dropped a scalding hot piece of brass on my thumb rather than into the water to cool off. oops...

drafting class is winding down and i am working on my big project and studying for my final exam. i already enrolled in a CAD (computer aided design) class for the summer and am really looking forward to it! also, i have a couple of friends that have enlisted me to redo their homes! woo hoo! this will be a summer of building my portfolio!
 
so, recently i saw someone i used to date for quite a while that i fondly refer to as "the old man" (mind you, he would be horrified to know this)..  anyhow, i was reminded of the great thing about dating someone almost two decades older than me... not only was he raised in an era of manners and knows how to treat a lady properly... but, i would always be the young hottie in the relationship.... hmmm...

until next time...

p.s. below is a photo of the famous necklace i designed and slaved over! it can be worn long or wrapped like in the photo....
