Guys, remember that thing about how I like fashion design but I'm also majoring in chemistry but taking fashion classes and maybe minoring in it and I wanna run a dress shop but chemistry will definitely pay better? (If you've read my About Me page, you know what I'm talking about)
Yeah, about that.
In my fashion class, we're basically designing our own line of clothes for a final project (we also have a final exam, but it's open book, so no big deal). We're in groups of 6, thank goodness, cuz this thing is huge. Also, I actually don't know what I'm doing.
See, in chem, I have incentive to actually learn the things, because it's my major and I have to know the things. I feel like I should be able to make stuff up and still get through fashion class just fine.
Just kidding. I can't.
Turns out creative people have a set process by which they do things, and you have to learn the process. And use it. I don't like set processes. This is not okay. (Also I feel super out of place in that class cuz everyone always looks cute and 98% of them are sorority girls and I'm always in sweats cuz I have a chem lab the same day as fashion class and I'm super lazy on Mondays and also I'm super not a sorority girl)
So I'm questioning my choice of a fashion minor. What if I just skip that bit? I still wanna know how to sew. I still hate using patterns and would rather just use a tutorial. I still wanna design some things myself. I just don't think I wanna take formal fashion classes. The internet is my friend.
And then I started thinking, once I get married and have kids and stuff, won't all this have been pointless? All the chem classes and research and mentorships and internships and all of the things?
What even is going on right now? And do I want to be fluent in French or is that another thing I've lost interest in?
Wow. Mmmmkay. I think I'm done now. Insert eternal perspective here. (Knowledge is good!)
