Jan '05 - Sep '06
well the semester's really winding down.. today begins the last day of classes followed by finals next week, then the summer begins in earnest. I'm pretty excited for it. I enjoyed my studio this semester, but most of my other classes were not what I expected, except for my American Architecture elective, which reinfornced my convictions that America has a rich architectural (and cultural) heritage that we're squandering and invalidating by allowing corporate prowress to dictate our culture to us as Big Macs, Targets and brick-faced pseudo-colonial houses. This will also be the first summer I'll be spending in Boston. I'll miss New Hampshire, and though I spent four summers working in Maine, city living yearround will be new to me. Hopefully, I'll have my car and can make weekend excursions north. I also feel like there are a number of personal things (one or two in particular) that I'd like to get taken care of before the semester ends, but I'm not sure it'll end up happening.
