Hi guys! I’m so sorry I haven’t posted anything in about three weeks.
It’s really because I’ve been so so busy!
First, finals in college kept me sitting at my desk doing endless projects for about a week and a half, barely giving me time to rest. Thankfully good friends would force me to give it a break and take me places so I could distract myself a little. In the end I passed all my classes, some with a bit of difficulty, but what’s college without some stress, huh?
Here are two pictures of one of my projects:
Unfortunately, my professor this semester really put me down. He was very harsh, and ended up making me doubt if I am a good enough architect. I’m not going to give up, but I must admit I was very sad with everything. I’d put in a tremendous effort into my work, and he wouldn’t really ever acknowledge it. Yes, I made a few mistakes that perhaps the others (my class in particular had some very nerdy students, might I add) weren’t making anymore, but I wish he’d taken into account all my other personal achievements.
Anyway, during these first two weeks of holiday I was very unenthusiastic about my choice in career, and decided to keep myself busy by finally giving my room the fix up it was needing. So much stuff needed to be thrown away or donated to someone. It took me three days to go through only one of the closets (the one where I’d still kept some old high school books for Christ’s sake haha).
Now I need to design the new furniture, also for my room, since I don’t have a desk at the moment nor a place to store my shoes. It’s going to be fun to design them myself; finally put some of what I learned into practice.
Tomorrow I’ll be heading to the beach with my mom and a friend from college; my dad will be heading there a little after. I haven’t been there in about five months; my dad has been ill and so my mom and I didn’t want to go without him and leave him in the city wishing he were with us. I’m really excited.
My friend and I will be going in uniform, per se. Our college hoodies have finally arrived, and so we’ll be wearing them a lot at the beach (it’s a bit cold after all). We’re very excited :D
Anyway, I hope to be posting my weekly blogs again next week. I missed this; sometimes I get so caught up on architecture that I forget how much I love writing.
So that’s that.
