  • 025 - It's been awhile

    (Kent State University) I swear I'm not dead, really. School has hit, and hit hard. It's come to the point where there is so much work that I have to start choosing what to finish/not finish based on what professor I don't want to upset more. I have this problem with not saying no. Sure, I'll do...

  • 022 - yet another portfolio - please crit!

    (Kent State University) &tSo I thought I'd jump on the archinect bandwagon and post my portfolio. Now what you see isn't all of it. I thought for this portfolio I would make it a series of "pamphlets" which each profile a separate project. I only have three done at the moment.. there are...

  • 016 - Row housing, schmo housing

    (Kent State University) "I wish we had more time for that." "There's not enough time to do that." "That's more of a graduate level thing to investigate." "Stay on track with the rest of the class." This is all I have been told for the past two/three weeks when I try to push my project further. No...

    (Kent State University) So I am alive, I think. You tend to forget where you are in space when you sleep for 14 hours after not sleeping for 48.
