Box Pleated Skirt Project

May 27, 2015

Hello! I want to start posting some of the sewing projects that I have done in the past so here's my first one! Many things I make are usually done by following other people's tutorials with an added bit of freehanding; the tutorials that I use for each project will be linked in the end.

I am so in love with longer skirts now. I've been into this more "sophisticated/modest" style lately so the extra length has become a favourite. I'm not a huge fan of midi skirts though because they make my legs look shorter when they hit around my calf, especially since I don't wear heels. Knee length is perfect for me and I don't have to worry about my bum showing too hehe.

The Time I Fainted In A Rat Room

May 20, 2015

Yup, you read that title correctly. After reading the title, you may have pictured me passed out in a locked room with rats running all over the place. I think if there was actually a room with rats on the loose, I wouldn't even step into it. Just to clarify, yes, the room was full of rats, but they were in cages. Nonetheless, it was still a rat room.

This summer, I'm volunteering as a research assistant/helper/you name it in a lab at my school. I have to go through many training sessions and rat handling training is one of them. The day of training arrived and I was emailed to meet in a room outside the vivarium (the room where they keep the live animals). When the time came, I went to the specified floor in the building but the room was no where to be found.
