So I do a lot of sewing. I don’t make any money off of it now except the occasional friend wanting me to make them a small trinket, but I plan to someday. Right now I’m just doing it for fun + gaining exposure. However, I usually don’t sew on Sundays, except for small things and/or gifts ect, because everything big that I do now it’s one step towards possibly making this a real job.
So prom is coming up in just over a week and I’m sewing my own dress. I’m running really low on time and I’m actually super worried about making it look how I want it to look in time, since it’s kind of complex. Sewing can be mentally challenging, but it’s obviously not manual labor and I’m not going to make any money directly off of this dress (I’ll post photos online and everything, so someday, indirectly…maybe). I want to work on it on Sunday (do I need to? Well…I probably could finish it without working on Sunday, but it won’t look as good and I might have to shirk other responsibilities to do it). Having a full weekend day to work is going to help so, so much, you have no idea. School takes up so much time and energy, I barely ever get any work done on weekdays unless it’s a couple days before a serious deadline; I literally just had two separate serious deadlines, each a week apart and taking place in the middle of the week and I’m tired and tomorrow I have to go to confession, so it might as well be a school day given how much time and energy that takes up and I’m so concerned about not finishing in time and having to wear a gross dress to prom because I can guarantee you right now that there is NOTHING in stores that will fit my body, taste, and motherfreaking standard of modesty so if I don’t finish I might not even be able to go to prom, which will be fun to explain to the friends that I pressured into going with me.
I probably answered my own question, but, well, there you go. Should I work on it this Sunday? Obviously I’m still going to go to mass.
