    Practical thinking: Take LEED 2.2 while in school.

    My apologies for a pretty weak blog. I'll try to keep up with the others, but I have my reasons.

    My head is a chopped salad consisting of Coasian, Schumpeterian and Pigovian Theories, Hong Kong case law, a jumble of Cantonese and Mandarin and to top it off LEED Credits, Standards and HVAC formulas. Luckily, I wash it all down with a nice glass of Port every night. (Thanks Dr. Ip)

    Architecture school was so much easier. I miss the days and nights of rubbing collected dirt onto vellum, tweaking splines and nurbs into the morning light, wiping the blood of off the CNC machine, and a coffee and smoke every half and hour.

    I suppose this is a healthier diet.

    Don't get me wrong, it's not that I'm not enjoying the program, it's just a major shift from an architecture program. I have absolutely no regrets, in fact, I'm sure that my fellow bloggers, as myself, are happy to be engulfed in the protective arms of Academia right now.

    Reiser + Umemoto are lecturing tonight. It'll be a nice change of mental scenery.
