Sad day for us kiddos #nyu
Day206:( a blurrr): Just picture yourself walking through a whole day not having anything in particular stand out and that is how my day has been. I would say it has been a bit of a blurr, plain Jane. It’s been a chill Friday for sure. I ran some errands for work today which got me out and about before stopping in for a tasty smoothie to cool off. Everyday can’t be amazing I suppose so I’m being lame and eating my dinner in the park.
It’s Friday and I’m 24 years old shouldn’t I be out drinking my night away? Haha well that’s not my style most weekends anymore and I just wish some goober would approach me and we take off exploring this damn city.
I’m nervous to come home in a few weeks. I don’t want to go back to what I had going in denton. School stinks and I wasn’t motivated to do amazing things in Texas. I closed myself off and didn’t hang with a lot of people because the energy was there but it would sure fade fast.
Many nights it was me on the couch watching crap tv eating my baked chicken and veggies and I was ok with it. I passed up opportunities along with put up a bit of a front a lot of the time.. Yuck I can’t have this!!
- Until next time

Day 205: (“We don’t sell a t-shirt; we
sell an emotion”): Today was the last day for the Texworld convention and today I sat in on three seminars that have really excited me about the fashion industry. My first session talked about colors and trends for the upcoming winter/ 2015 which was neat. Prepare yourself folks for some Varsity inspired trends with some prep added in! Denims will be seen everywhere in new forms and textures. Extreme silhouettes will be seen along with the utility work wear and then some british invasion. Soooooo pretty much everything is secular and nothing is really new anymore. Everything just takes a little spin on something of the past.
My second session was more of a Q&A and I wasn’t very into it but the second speaker was a fun spunky person keeping things light. She had some harsh words to say about 3d printing but I kind of agree with her…. You go girl!! Ending off my session with “How not to start a fashion brand” I was enlightened and coukdnt stop writing.
After sitting in the same spot from 10-3 I decided to walk around to all the low minimum manufacturers for fabrics but most were closing shop early.. It’s ok though, I met this woman that said before I leave I can come job shadow her for an afternoon!!!
I had a 2 mile walk home and have already had my dinner so I am ready to put the computer away, put the leggings on and explore…..First coffee.

Day 205:( A year) Today I saw myself in a full length mirror in some bathroom and I paused for a minute before taking a photo. The first and only person I sent it to was my mom but I have decided to post it for my friends to see and read about. This wasn’t the “Give me compliments” , “Selfie love” type photo this was the “oh my gosh I finally notice some change.” For the first time in a long time I actually saw something I didn’t hate. I’ve always yes, hated being tall and having bigger shoulders but my recent struggle has been my weight and being too skinny. I have the overly skinny anorexic looking arms and legs so daily it was a thing to cover them up with cardigans and leggings.
Today I noticed I am starting to fill out and look better. I look healthy compared to two months ago or better
yet a freaking year. From my lowest weight to my current weight I am doing better and feeling better taking it a day at a time. It still can’t be normal to have pressure on my side almost everyday throughout the day and to still get sick from time to time
but this medicine i’m taking is making life a hell of a lot easier. It’s nice to not have people constantly telling me I need to gain weight or “Let’s fatten you up”so things are getting better. I’m trying but I just eat super healthy and walk several miles each day exploring the city but I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. Another part of my struggle is pure mind set . With me being bigger at a younger age gaining weight is a hard thing to push for but don’t judge before you get to know me. (I eat and I eat a lot) BIZNATCHES.
Today I didn’t do much to be honest. I wrote more on my paper, grabbed a drink and headed to Washington Square Park to eat my tasty turkey melt for awhile. Now if the rain holds off I just may make my way to the M&M store to be a tourista. I say too much but this is my life and my struggles and I know many of you can relate to some part of a post from time to time so I post it. Keep that head up.

Day 203: ( My Texworld our apparel your home): Today was pretty cool I knocked out some work before heading into the studio for a bit. After knocking out some work I had the opportunity to attend TexWorld which is a convention type trade show filled with hundreds of vendors from all over the world. Just picture millions of colorful swatches everywhere! ! This was pretty cool and I just may go back tomorrow for more fun( I mean work). All the vendors were sweet today but my first booth attempt was a fail all round with communication issues..
I laugh now but I was embarrassed at the time.
After a quick break I hit the convention hard and really took the time to sit down with a few vendors and discuss options and prices. My work here probably will not bring anything new to the table for CH but it sure as heck has opened my eyes to a whole new world.What an experience. I love this!
