So the computer is still broken. It's really starting to piss me off. I spent about 4 hours trouble shooting with Greg, our IT guy. He's totally cool. Looks like it wasn't my motherboard, but actually half of my RAM was bad. Still under warranty. HOWEVER, my Windows install is messed up, so I need to do that again, but it won't let me install my SATA drivers. Most of you probably don't care, but it's driving me insane. I want my dual CPU machine with 2GB of RAM back again. This laptop is driving me nuts.
We got an email from Julio yesterday (I mentioned it on Adrienne's blog). He said he was disappointed that we weren't producing when he told us to do so. He also threatened our grades. So you take 10 unmotivated people, then fire out one of those emails, and what do you get? Ten super unmotivated people. It was totally discouraging. As you know, I don't care about my grades, so that's not the issue. At this point I would just take a C to get it over with. Here's the deal. After mid review we were supposed to change to a different site. But between Wednesday (mid review) and Tuesday, we were supposed to make the suggested changes to our projects. Most of us thought that it was a waste of time to fix our project only to restart a few days later. In my case, I wrote my professional practice paper, shot four rolls for photography, thought about my project and just took a little time to myself. I worked over spring break, so I figured I could take a day off. Most people did similar stuff. He comes in on Tuesday and tells us we are keeping out site. He also gave us case studies to do as well. Way too late in the game for this crap. Needless to say, morale is rock bottom around studio.
On a random studio note, this is the third out of four studios where I have designed a school. First semester was a media pavilion, second semester was a school with a garden, third semester was an elementary school, fourth is an architecture school. I hate schools.
Also. I'm starting to think I've black listed myself because of this blog. Woops.
It had come to my attention that David Hasselhoff was causing problems. In order to clear my name, I did what was necessary. Amidst the falling sakura, David and I ascended to a remote mountain temple. Before the Buddhist temple, we engaged in honorable mortal combat. Our swords glistened in the morning sun. He fought well, but ultimately, I bested him in a game of sword play. My friend took this photo seconds before I removed his body from his head. I wish she would have gotten the picture right after I chopped it off, but she fainted from all the sweet blood flying all over the place. The mountain side was stained with his wicked, wife beating, silicone enhanced viscera.
