    I made a concrete turd

    adrienne Mar 31 '06 5

    I really did. I squeezed clumpy concrete through my hands and let it drip and pile up and it pretty much looked like dog crap...kinda juicy dog crap, and I was actually trying to make a model. So this leaves me feeling like WTF! I am about to walk out of here with a master's degree?! I mean at this point the only thing I have pride in is snack heaven. I am not getting anywhere in studio. I have no architectural proposition and I don't know what to do. Francois will be back next week and will surely be angry and start cursing in French, and that idea scares me a little.

    At least I am not alone, I think a lot of people are frustrated. So in response I have been eating an unusually large amount of cupcakes with pink frosting...not a good sign.

    plus i am still on the job hunt which is a little stressful. hopefully it will all get figured out soon. i have had a bunch of interviews, but no official offers yet. i am only worried because i did my loan exit interview the other day, and started to realize what my monthly payments were going to be...yikes. plus i might not finish paying for these 2 years until 2035, which is great because i will be 55! oh well, i just keep reminding myself that educational debt is "good debt."

    anyway i will proabably have more painful posts this weekend, because i don't care what it takes...i am going to have a project by Monday. just me, snack heaven and my pink computer...

    ...and i think i'll just give my concrete turds to my dad for father's day as paper weights for his office, a la elementary school.

      I want to do something distracting this afternoon. Do you think a visit to Meyerson Hall to see a concrete turd would be worth the trip?

      maybe our friend Wolfhilde von Schlittenfahrt should do some investigative journalism and bring us the latest on the concrete turd after his visit this afternoon with images.
      I am thinking tensile strength and other applicable data should be provided too.
