Although it may seem to be, this blog is not abandoned. Sorry to my readers for my delinquency, and a big thank you to all who sent words of encouragement after my last post.
I'm now in mid-term hell... so much to do. During spring break I'll be applying for jobs and scholarships, so that won't be too much more restful than right now, but at least I'll be able to sleep more. I'm still recovering from a) giving blood last Thursday, and b) getting drunk on karaoke night at the grad student bar, GYPSCY. That's some acronym for the grad student club/government/association. It's so funny that Yale provides its own bar. I mean c'mon”¦ as if we needed another reason to stay on campus. It's a nice bar actually, with a big screen TV and two billiard tables and a garden patio and a big dance floor upstairs. AND it's the next building over from the A&A. So, you'd think I'd be there all the time drinking my worries away, but I'm not the most hardcore drinkerÃ¢â‚¬”no tolerance really, and if I did visit with any regularity I'd never get any work done. However last Friday my friend and fellow studio group member was behind the bar for the first time, so after a disappointing game of Yale hockey (we lost 0-5), I ended up there with a bunch of other architecture people. Yes, I did sing, but I can't really recall it. I remember the whole room was becoming blurry around that time of night.
The best bar around here is Rudy's, by the way, as it had good bands and excellent frites. So good.
Something that's been talked about a lot here lately is the Christo exhibition. Some love it, others hate itÃ¢â‚¬”very few are in between.
Well, more soon, I promise. I have to go make a model of a landscape over a manufacturing building with an apartment tower over that. I'll take some photos.
(It's snowing here and that's really beautiful. Hopefully I can get some shots of that too.)
