Back to school
Let's see.

I hated studying. I hated memorizing. I hated maths. I hated textbooks. After high school, despite scoring A's for maths and add maths (not really sure how THAT happened), I swore off at maths and was certain I'd never have to use it again. I mean, come on, do I really think I'd want to be an accountant?? Pffft.

Now let's look at what I'm doing now on a Saturday afternoon.

I'm reading a textbook.
On pattern drafting.
Which requires maths and accurate measurements.
I've been using rulers--huge ones, small ones, curved ones.
I've been whipping out my calculator.
It took me weeks to decide if I wanted to go with the Imperial measurement system or the Metric system.
After deciding on Imperial, at the very last minute I went back to the good ol metric system I learnt in school.
I'm bookmarking the pages with colorful marklets I "splurged" on at Jaseema's.
I'm having coffee and im focused (I hope).

Ok, you sonnuvagun named Sewing. You've got me.

I'll do whatever it takes to win you over.
