  1. SNOWBOARDING!
    On Sunday, I went snowboarding at Snow Summit with [personal profile] aznearthdragon, her boyfriend, and our brother. Let me just say that I pretty much sucked ass at it, LOLOLOLOL. I couldn't get up from a sitting position, I was way too scared going down the slopes, and I always made myself fall because I felt like I was going too fast and I couldn't figure out how to slow down. x_x

    Later on in the afternoon, me and [personal profile] aznearthdragon decided to do the lessons because we had it complementary ([personal profile] aznearthdragon won our tickets from the radio) and I was pretty much the lamest person in our "beginner" group. (Honestly, those people might have been "beginners", but they weren't true beginners like me, LOLOLOL.) But it's okay because every group needs a person like me to make everyone else feel better about their performance. XP

    I don't really feel like I learned anything in the lessons because even though the instructor told us how to do stuff, I pretty much couldn't do it, LOLOLOLOL. And near the end, it was time to practice going down the slopes and I totally needed help, so the instructor went with me. On our last run down, I couldn't really control the speed, so we were going SUPER FAST and the instructor guy couldn't slow us down either, then I lost my balance and totally landed on my tailbone, but since I was holding hands with the instructor, I totally yanked him down with me! I was so scared he was going fall on me and it was going to be over, since he was bigger than me, but luckily he caught himself on his hands above me instead of crushing me. That was when I decided I had enough, since it was kinda close to closing time anyway, LOL. Plus, that fall was really hard and the last couple of days, it's been hurting so much I can't even lay down on my back, but it's finally starting to hurt less, so yeah.


  2. SHIT ARCHITECTURE PROFESSORS SAY!
    I saw someone post this video on FB and thought it was hilarious/so true. XP


    There was also Shit Architecture Students Say, which is pretty funny too. XP

This week, in no particular order...

  • [personal profile] aznearthdragon and I took then LEED Green Associate exam today and we both passed! XD I got 185/200 -- I assume that means I got 15 wrong (?) which is pretty close to what I was expecting (counted five I didn't know and twelve I was unsure of), so YAY!


  • I got my diploma in the mail this week! I was going to scan it to stick in this post, but then I got lazy. XP But yeah, after I opened the envelope and saw my diploma, I was like, "Five years, and this is all I get to show for it?" -- I'm sure that's the typical reaction though, lol. In the words of one of my FB friends a few weeks ago (paraphrased): I wish we got job offer instead of a diploma after graduation. Life would be so much easier that way. (Which is to say, I'm still job hunting 'cause I, sadly, didn't get that one job I went to interview for. =/ )


  • Went to a screening of 30 Minutes or Less on Wednesday. I thought the movie was okay, but there were times where I was like, "Uhh, this part seems unnecessarily vulgar..." but yeah, maybe it's just me. Whatever, I only wanted to watch it for Jesse Eisenberg anyway. XP


  • Tried to go to a screening of The Help on Thursday, but sadly it was full and we were turned away. =(


  • Quick Project Runway ramble: I really liked the top two dresses this week, but I kind of thought the bird seed dress should have won over Olivier's. I mean, Olivier's looked good too, but the fit kind of sucked, especially the top. I do think that Olivier is kind of adorable though, lol. He just seems so nice and he has that cute accent! XP

So yesterday, we went to Yogurtland and I had just gotten my frozen yogurt and only had a couple of bites of it and then somehow, I lost my grip on the cup and IT FELL ON THE FLOOR! ;____________; It was super devastating because I only ate some of the Mint Chocolate Cookie fro-yo and I didn't even get to the taro part, which is my favorite! =(((((((

In other news, the other day I finally got an email saying my degree was conferred! XD Sadly I won't be receiving my diploma in the mail for another month, but whatever. The annoying thing is that I was looking on my profile thing to see if everything was correct and two of my minors aren't listed! >O I know what was wrong for one of them and I emailed the advisor, so that should probably be okay once they get back to me, but the ARCE one is giving me problems. x_x Apparently the requirements I fulfilled for that minor weren't the 09-11 catalog requirements, but the 11-13 requirements which apparently don't apply for people who graduated this year. x_x I think that is just plain ridiculous because I talked to the ARCE department head about it before and he said that it was okay and I have a copy of the new contract signed saying I completed the minor and honestly, shouldn't the department's decision override the catalog? Anyway, I emailed the ARCE department, so hopefully they get back to me and let me substitute some of the classes I've taken in to fulfill my catalog requirements so I can get the minor, or else I'll just be super pissed off. I mean, I did the work, it's not fair if I don't get it officially! >O

GUYS, I GRADUATE IN LESS THAN EIGHT HOURS! It's still freakin' weird to think that I'm actually DONE! I really should go to sleep soon because my parents will be here in about six hours and then they're gonna help me move my bookshelf out of studio (what a way to spend the little time I have before graduation, right?), then it's graduation time. After the ceremony, we're basically gonna jump in the car and drive back down to SD for [personal profile] aznearthdragon's engineering ring ceremony thing. Then tomorrow morning we have to go to [personal profile] aznearthdragon's graduation ceremony! YAY CLASS OF 2011! ♥

[personal profile] aznearthdragon decorated her cap.


(Hers is on the left.)

It's so cute! Sadly my cap is undecorated. I asked [personal profile] aznearthdragon if she could cut out the pieces to decorate my cap during the drive up to SLO -- hopefully she can get it done so I can have a pretty cap too. (I love you [personal profile] aznearthdragon, you are awesome! ♥)

Anyway, I should get to bed.

I finished my last final of my life yesterday, it was awesome! I mean, I definitely didn't get a 100%, like I did on the midterm in that class, but it was respectable enough, so at least I know I'm getting an A somewhere. XP I wish I was completely done, but I have an exit interview with Ansgar later today and then I have to take photos of my model and make my CD on Thursday before I'm completely done with everything. But yeah, graduation on Saturday -- SO WEIRD!

I'm thinking of decorating my cap, but I dunno what to do! I wish I could think of something cool, but I'm totally lame. All ideas are welcome -- please, make my day! XP

I really need people to help me move my bookshelf out of studio. =( No one wants to help me though, it sucks. =( Hopefully I can find people to help, but if not, then I really need my family to come here early on Saturday to help me move it to my apartment before the graduation ceremony. =/

I definitely had more to say, but I started this entry before I got distracted by people coming over and now it's all late and I can't remember, so yeah. Probably more to say later when I actually remember. XP

I have five minutes before I need to leave and get back to studio, so a quick update!

  • I am not dead (yet)!

  • I am still working like a crazy person and my sleep schedule is totally messed up.

  • I just got the BEST SLEEP EVER last night for a glorious 10.5 hours (after 34 hours of working without a nap ;_;)! I was suppose to wake up earlier to work, but honestly, I don't regret it at all.

  • Gonna pull another all-nighter tonight. ;_____;

  • To do (still): finish my posters, build a model, finish my section model.

  • I'm scheduled to print at 5:30PM on Friday.

  • Set up is Friday. Show is this weekend. My parents are coming on Saturday morning. ♥ But they're probably going to show up way too early, which means I won't get to sleep as much as I want. =/


Okay, my five minutes are up -- gotta get back to work!

So our show was yesterday and it went pretty well. The turnout was way more than I expected, but I think it's mostly because we were the first studio to go and everyone was coming to take notes on what to do and what not to do. XP But yeah, I was tried to take pictures of everyone's projects, but some of my pictures were super blurry. And then, of course, I dropped my camera and broke it, so I couldn't retake pictures. =( Anyway, by near the end of our show, we were all tired -- it was kind of funny how pretty much everyone in our class was just sitting all slumped against the wall near the end, lol. If I had a working camera, I totally would have taken a picture. XP

Anyway, a few pictures!

My model!
My model! The shadows look pretty cool in this one. XD

MORE! )

My poster for our show later today!


So the last couple of days have been ridiculously busy, as you can probably tell from my Twitter digest. The only reason I have time to even write this post now is because I have to keep waiting for Revit to regenerate my curtain walls everytime I make a change to them and it's taking forever. ;________;

Basically, I have a pretty awesome model, but I will have super craptastic drawings. I feel this is a fair exchange because no one looks at posters anyway when you have a cool model, right? (Just lie to me! ;___;)

A few pictures of my model, as finished as it's gonna be for the show today:

Section Model
From the front.

Section Model
From the back.


Total time working on that model: ~40 hours. (A few hours on Thursday, and then Friday starting at 12PM straight until 1AM on Sunday, minus about about three hours for going home and showering and a 30-45 minute nap.)

I wanted to be able to go home at 3AM today to get some sleep, but Revit hates me, so now I'm hoping to finish by 4AM. Hopefully that works out because I really need more sleep. =(((( Need to wake up to go print at 8AM, so yeah...

Back to slaving away...

I think it's finally starting to sink into everyone that our show is in four more days because almost everyone is in studio right now and people are actually working! It's crazy, I know! (Just kidding, it's now 9PM and most people have left.)

Anyway, I'm working on my big model -- hopefully I can finish it by Friday because I need to have Friday and Saturday to get my drawings in order and to lay them out for printing. Sunday can't be a workday, sadly, because we all have to help set up for the show on Monday.

I'm so tired right now, it's ridiculous. I think it's the heat -- it was so hot today, I'm pretty sure I got sunburned =(

I didn't buy any mat board from the bookstore today and I kinda need some to build my second floor. =/ I know I have some board at home though, so I will probably cut the pieces when I go home later... Right now, I'm trying to build everything I can without having the floor done.. It's kinda hard, I have to say. I'm just building walls right now...

Gonna take a food break soon with some peepz -- we're just waiting for someone to get their car.

  1. Last night we had an impromptu movie night in which watched Wicker Man as the main attraction and later followed it with The Karate Kid (2010). Let me just say it right now that Wicker Man, is, like, the worst movie ever, LOLOLOL. If I didn't go in anticipating a bad movie, I would be so so disappointed. The only saving grace for that movie was the company and the ridiculous commentary that went with it. XP


  2. I totally followed up an unproductive night with ignoring my Revit model in lieu of watching the Born This Way episode of Glee. (I feel only a little bit guilty, really.) Like all episodes of Glee, there were moments I liked and moments where I just wanted to yell at the screen. But seriously, the songs in this episode were all awesome. (Except Born This Way, but I don't like that song and I'm so over Gaga, please stop.) Also, Mike and Tina, OMG HOW ADORABLE. I'm totally sad about the Warblers being gone though. ;_; I'm too lazy to really go into all my thoughts, so that's all you'll get.

  3. I just listened to the songs for the next Glee episode and OMG SANTANAAAA! If she sings this to Brittany in the episode, I think I will totally start sobbing, LOLOL. ♥


I have to go to class now. x_x
