Bold the ones you've read COMPLETELY, italicize the ones you've read part of. Watching the movie or the cartoon doesn't count. Abridged versions don't count either. BTW, according to the BBC if you've read 7 of these, you are above the average.

5 To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee (one of my favorites)

I'm preparing to begin sewing through my fabric (of which there is a lot) and I'm looking to fill some holes in my wardrobe. Hopefully with stuff I'll wear more often. I've noticed I definitely prefer dresses or JSKs to skirts and tops, I guess because I'm inherently a little bit lazy about coordinating things. I suppose it's just my nature.

Anyway, I was stumbling through for some inspiration, and I ended up finding this. That's a lolita dress that my mother purchased for me from Closet Child when we were in Japan in Spring of 2005. So... It's been in my possession for a little under 7 years? From the information listed there, it was from the 2002 collection. I'm going to assume it was a spring collections since the dress is 100% cotton and unlined, but I'd honestly have to check my old GLBs to be sure. Anyway, I just think it's cool that I own something from that early in the fashion, since I really only started buying a lot of brand this year. I suppose I assumed that dress was more from 2004 or something, when it started to be a little more popular.

Kind of explains why I picked it up for ¥10,000. It's still lasted an amazingly long time and is beautifully constructed. It's actually probably the piece I wear most often, though my newer Baby JSK may give it a run for its money.

This year I would like to sew through every goddamn scrap of fabric that I own. More than that though, I would like to get my brand out there and do more substantive work for my portfolio. I don't think this is unachievable, rather I am incredibly lazy thus it's more a matter of keeping track of time and actually doing something with it.

So yes. Bring on 2012. Bring on the sewing machine.

The cool thing about having a brand new journal is that I can organize it any way I damn well please. I've had my livejournal since 2003 and I wasn't the slickest kid in 2003. I didn't think about things like tags. I don't even remember if we had a tags feature, actually. Anyway, the point is that by the time I thought I might want to use them to organize anything, they were all so fucked up on my blog that I had a hard time wanting to bother. Here's a chance to correct that.

Anyway, I said this was a to-do list, so here goes...

1 - Clean living room. I'd like to clear out all the "loose things" my mom keeps complaining about. Find a home for shit like exacto knives, electrical tape, etc.

2 - Try to complete a lolita dress. I have plenty of fabric/notions/whatever. I just need to get my ass in gear and do it.

3 - Eat something because I'm still hungry from last night sjgdjfjldjldjdfl.

4 - All the tags.
