Throughout the summer I have been feeling increasingly more prepared to live on my own. I've been thinking that I only have one more year until I graduate and I plan to go on to get my PhD. This means I'll be living on my own - this doesn't necessarily mean without roommates, but rather not on campus (no dining hall or someone to clean the bathrooms). As the summer goes by, I've realized that I feel ready for it - like I have the skills to do it. As of yesterday, one more item has been fulfilled.
Cooking - Check!
Baking - Check!
Cleaning - Check!
Sewing - Check!
Sewing on a sewing machine - Check!! (as of yesterday!!!)
should give my great aunt and one of my aunts a big thank you for teaching me how to use a sewing machine and trusting me with a little project that same afternoon. It was great! It really was a big feeling of accomplishment!!!
