Obligatory graduate post.
this day has led me to reflect on the words that have stuck with me over the years from my 2014 baccalaureate ceremony. the poet elizabeth alexander reminded me today that “our words are vessels filled with meaning and intent.” this is why, to this day, i still hold the words of khalid latif close. “may you be protected always from hearts that are not humble, tongues that are not wise, and eyes that have forgotten how to cry” - khalid latif

congratulations to all 2019 graduates. .

I wish i had a beach or at least a pool to pose in front of but for now, my radiator will have to do. this is the #bombshellswimsuit from @closetcase.patterns - the pattern is fantastic, as is the very detailed sewalong, but please don't be like me and do check whether your lining fabric has the same amount of four way stretch as the outer shell. mine didn't - the good news is that the swimsuit is still wearable, but getting it on and off is a lot more fun than i want it to be and i might have to test it before i trust those straps with any actual swimming. the outer fabric is a lycra from @minervacrafts and that one i can highly recommend. .

I'm teaching a knitting class tomorrow so have been gathering some of my work to share. began knitting this cardi before i went to live in saudi. didn't finish it until over 15 years later when i left saudi! when i refound it there was a sleeve and a back - and no pattern. so i made it into a cardigan. and when i finally found the pattern? it was a sweater. the most perfect vintage buttons found at a quilt show. rowan silk yarn.

Dont be ashamed of your journey.. it took me 12 years to get this beautiful moment to share with my family and friends.

through this process i learn to love, laugh, smile, cry, to be sometimes disappointed,struggle to get classes, to not be afraid, to not give up, to fight for my rights..but most importantly to love myself and my struggle.

i broke through many walls like not having financial aid, being over aged, being the first of my family to go to college, not being able to study aboard to mexico to see my family and of course coming out of the shadows which means to love your undocumented status.

i met so many amazing people through each step i took .. took a little piece of them as they took a little piece of me too. i learned to not be ashamed of my story.. my journey because in the end we all have a different journey who makes us who we are and each one of us have different struggles. undocumented or not .. or being too young or too old, being a great student or not should not defined u.

what defines you.. it's only you and you write your own story .. no one else. the beauty of your down falls and when you rise are the most beautiful moments of your life
