(Kent State University)
My original intention for this blog was the freedom to express my thoughts, opinions, ideas, etc, etc, about my self, my work, and most importantly my college. I would keep the blog a secret from my peers, and not be influenced or worried about what I would put in here. I would not feel pressured to talk up the school or afraid to state its downfalls that I find.
However, things have changed recently, and I have been approached by a series of people in the school asking me what it is I intend on doing. My plan didn't work as well, or as long as I hoped. I knew it would be found, but I didn't think it would be found and interpreted in this certain way.
To reiterate, I recently published the first issue of our school's publication as seen in an earlier post. I had difficulties printing it, so I had to resort to things that may have not been appropriate at the time. I think a matter of things need to be understood to all who know me personally and read this. The matter has been resolved, relationships are now known and understood, and in the future things will be handled differently.
However, I will not apologize for the content I put on this blog. This is a personal experiment, part of an even larger experiment. The chance to see how every architecture school you've ever wondered what the students are like. Unbiased (relatively) opinions and discussions from students all over the globe. What I write is for my own personal benefit and the reading of other archinecters. What I write is not to be taken outside of this website and handled with me as a student at the college. What I write in here will not affect the future of our newsletter or anything else.
The original objective was for me to write without fear of having to submit to the college and suppress my beliefs, whatever they may be. What I want to be known is this: I love my school, I love everything about it. I do not write with the intention to undermine anyone or anything, but I still will continue to write whatever I feel, because that is the point of this blog.
