Or, I ain’t got much!
I am taking this year off at Costume College. I’m dealing with some life crap, which is what I think is causing me to feel totally “meh” at the idea of dressing up. I’m totally looking forward to going and hanging out with friends and meeting new people, but I don’t want to have to wear 30 pounds of clothing to do so. I have many costumes I could wear, even some that are new from this past year, but the idea of it makes me want to put on my PJs and crawl in bed. So, instead, I am putting my feet up and wearing a dress I bought to the gala!
Of course, this is not to say that I’m not excited about dressing up at all… but I’m planning a whole lot of comparatively comfy 1950s-60s Mad Men-esque silliness.
I am also not teaching any classes this year. I actually have a couple of ideas of things I’d like to teach, but no energy to prep the classes or teach them.
In the meantime, I look forward to having the time and energy to do what’s important — hang out with old friends and make new ones. Oh, and go to the one limited class I’m in (and one is more than enough) — Janea Whitacre’s fly fringe class, which I’m really looking forward to.
Next year, I’ll make a decent showing!
