Sep '06 - May '08
So imagine my surprise today when I check the adjusted results from last nights Level III studio lottery and see my name under Yung Ho's Ideal City studio? It was a nice surprise to start the day with. Classwise, it means I drop out of real estate development to accomodate the 21 hrs of studio (how are these numbers generated anyway?). I don't mind tho, I'm too excited about getting back into a studio after a one year hiatus to care.
Went around Beantown today taking photos, sketching and writing notes on the city for my Methods class. I limited myself to Boston Commons, Washington avenue, and a bit of chinatown. I havn't yet begun to scratch the surface and didnt expect to on my first half-day study trip out there, but hopefully I get more accomplished tommorrow. The density of Boston is wonderful and makes me believe my prof's description of Boston as the "westernmost european city." I would validate that claim just from the juxtaposition of historic, dated buildings next to shiny new construction (for me, reminiscent of berlin), but i feel that would be too shallow an analysis. Did a lot of walking and had dinner at the Taiwan Cafe - really good noodles.
Man do my feet hurt.
under the dome.
these fish occupied an aquarium placed next to my head at lunch. a little creepy.
