The amount of people that pulled all-nighters was ridiculous. The amount of work that was assigned was overwhelming. The tension between people, and towards the work, was as thick as fog. I don't like the model I made. Sure it looked cool but it wasn't right. I know it wasn't right. I wasn't happy with it. I was frustrated with it. Mid-term critiques went surprisingly well though. My professor brought in two of his architectural colleagues who were just as surprisingly easy to present to. They seemed to really like the idea that has been driving my process thus far, and (after the initial dissatisfaction with my model that I wasn't happy with) all they did was bounced new ideas off of each other; so constructive criticism. I then over the next few days made more new models to try and satisfy the needs of the project as well as myself. I'm now on my sixth 18 by 18 by 4 inch model. I would show you my frustration but instead I'll show you the parts of the project that I did correctly, and that turned out well.
|This is a model I made in a program called Rhino. I then made these structures out of task board (aka IMPOSSIBLE) I did a ton of other stuff too, but when I complete it, it will go up on the blog that my professor made for our section.|
Okay, I'm done now. Onto better things! Halloween is coming really, really soon. This also means that my birthday is coming soon! The days continue to fly by. There is a possibility that I will have more than one costume for that weekend; Eeyore & the Mad Hatter. We'll see.
Tomorrow I leave for Rhode Island (which I've never been to) for my first college swim meet. Exciting and scary. But I get to miss my biology class which is dislike strongly. But I'm also sick so I don't know how well I'll do. I'll keep you posted.
Besides focusing on purely architectural studies in college, after talking to my academic advisor we discussed some exciting potentials for my future here at RPI which are...
- Getting a music minor. Because I love music, and I've taken music theory & history courses that fascinate me. It also correlates with stylistic tendencies within eras of art and architecture.
- Getting a master in acoustics. Which is actually possible if I work everything out while I'm here. It might mean I stay a summer later on to do research, or extra classes, but it will be worth it.
Graduating with a Minor in Music, Bachelors of Architecture, and Master in Acoustics would put me at a good place going into the profession of architecture. Which I want. And then I would get paid to do what i love the end.
|Want the boots. And the navy pants. Might as well go for the socks too. I just love UO.|
I also received a package today from Urban Outfitters. My parents said that it's my Birthday present. This also excites me. But I have a dilemma; should I wait until it is actually my Birthday to open it, or open it when I feel like it (aka, early, because I want to potentially wear it's contents). Internal struggle guys.
As you can see I've got a few conflicting emotions going on, and I'm tired and starting to ramble because it just turned midnight and I can sleep in tomorrow but that doesn't mean I should stay up for no reason on the Internet and blog like I'm doing right now do you see what I mean about the rambling? (exhale)
How is the rest of the world doing?
