Sep '08 - Feb '13
So the election is over. I don't want to write too much about it, but I think yesterday will be remembered as a very important moment in American history. Partisanship aside - it is an exciting time to be a young person.
Got a deadline for our studio project. I really need to make a timeline to map the rest of the semester out. We have to be done the Monday before thanksgiving - which is VERY soon. eek!
Last semester I made this killer schedule (I was trying to free up the 3 days immediately before deadline to go to Collegiate Triathlon Nationals in Tuscaloosa) and I stuck to it very rigidly. I finished the project on time, stress free, and still managed to spend the weekend in Alabama while everyone else was in studio crunching. It was great. So hopefully I can repeat that experience.
I need some feedback on this next one... So a couple of days ago I found my webcam I used to talk to my parents with when I was a freshman. I always had this idea of setting it up to broadcast (either streaming or on interval) in the studio a shot of the working surface of my desk or something - but i have mixed feelings about it. Part of me thinks it is creepy, part of me thinks it is kind of interesting. Could be nice on a portfolio website or something? Archinect blog?
What are thoughts on that??
School blog of BArch student Samuel Mortimer kept from 2008 - 2011. Mostly late-night musings of the studio, but with an emphasis of the events of the College of Architecture and Design and University of Tennessee on the whole. Later blogs discuss participation in the New Norris House project, as both a student and researcher hired after graduation.
