the transition to grad school was really rough for my cohort- there just didn't seem to be a lot of support for us when we got to school, and the first class we had to take (during a summer session no less) was the toughest course required for our degrees, marine biogeochemistry (there were many, many other issues, but i won't get into them here). by the end of the summer, we were all burnt out on class work, frustrated with our burgeoning research projects, and annoyed with our professors. my roommate at the time declared that we needed a "you-don't-suck" cake- something she had done once, when life had kinda run her over a bit. it sounded fantastic, so we ordered one:


it was the exact thing we all needed, to distract us from work and help us realize that we had all gotten through biogeochem just fine.

yesterday, almost a year after the cake-y awesome-ness, one of my friends who has been having a rough time randomly mentioned that she needed another you-don't-suck cake- so when home that day, using aoi's super fantastic little felt cake tutorial (see https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=26836.0) i made her this:


teehee!!! so silly, but so awesome...i'm actually really proud of it because this is the first real attempt at embroidery i've made, and it worked! she really liked it, too, and it is sitting proudly on a shelf at eye level at her desk, so she can turn and see it for inspiration and reassurance anytime she needs it.

That's just an awesome idea.  I might have to make one for myself.  I wonder how long it would take to make one for all the grad students in my department...  probably too long.  Maybe I could make one for each lab...
