27 Dresses

My week long class is over!
I've worked hard all week long and am quite proud of what I accomplished. My English 3440 (writing) class was an inspiration.

Classtime usually brings just doodles of flowers or the alphabet. But this was no oridnary class. My idea began the first day after a guy told a poem about all his wife's dresses. I thought to myself,

"Hmm...dresses. Interesting." and it began.

I drew one, then another and another. Grad students analyzed, and I doodled. Don't worry, I was listening, even participating. But mainly, I was drawing.

The girl next to me asked me what I was drawing. I sheepishly told her I had A.D.D and she just laughed. She asked me if I had seen the movie 27 Dresses?
I really quite like that movie.

Ah-ha! My simple-minded doodling just took on a new qwest. 27 DRESSES

Friday 1:00pm. I finished. only if I could turn this in as my portfolio instead of the poems and prose!

This project led me to one question: do I really want to spend the rest of my life being a teacher, or should I try designing dresses? Hmm...I'll have to give that some thought. ;)
There are seriously some scary ones.

But I do have a few favorites.

Which one, of the 27 Dresses do you fancy?
