I have begun studying Spanish again! Very exciting. In the Canadian school system, it is mandatory to study French in elementary school (grades kindergarten - 8) as French is our second language. I hate french. J'deteste le francais. No me gusta nada la lengua francia. None of my siblings like French either, so my mom and dad took matters into their own hands. They enrolled us in Spanish lessons. They were on Saturday, 8:30 til 1:00, every week. Any ordinary kid would have been fed up with that, but my siblings and I loved it. We learned all sorts of interesting things and after 3 years in the program, my brother and I could speak Spanish better than the adults enrolled in the class. We stopped our studies once I hit grade 7, but upon entering high school, I was able to take advanced spanish classes in grade 9. Since then, Spanish had been ingrained in my lifestyle. I quit my studies in my second year of university, in first term of last year when I was unsure what direction I was going to take with my studies. After a year off, I am finding it a little difficult to remember everything... yikes. Necesito tener las characteristicas de un buen estudiante. Necesito repasor todas las noches, hacer mi tarea, y pensar en espanol.
***I need to have the characteristics of a great student. I need to study every night, do my homework and think in spanish.
That was a long story about nothing. You want Pokedresses. Let's have'em.

About that dress though.
Honestly Venonat is one of those Pokemon that I'd sooner leave than take. This is the second dress I designed for this Pokemon. The first was a furry sort of jacket, with kind of a horizontally textured skirt and gloves. Waaay to sophisticated for Venonat. I showed it to my Mom today though and she liked it more than this one, so maybe I'll do an updated Venonat. Or I could do round 2 with the first 150... Anyways, I took things down a notch with dress 2, a high-waisted number that was meant to be more cute than sexy. I like the accessories a lot, but the shoes look like raspberries to me... something about the pores. In real life, I think they'd look good. Looking at it now, I think I should have used a redder color. The shoes and top are sort of magenta-y pinkish and it doesn't sit too well with me.
But look! Furry skirt! With pearls or some other white, non sparkly gem in it. I like furry things. Mmmm. Softness. I bought a great fur vest when I was in California this year. I'm still too scared to wear it. One day.
Venomoth! I choose you!
...not actually. Venomoth is another one I probably wouldn't want in my lineup. I acknowledge that poison and sleep techniques are deadly, but venomoth just doesn't look that cool.
