    Before the semester started I invested in a Mammillaria Fragilis cactus from the flowershop in harvard square. I try to always have some kind of plant on my desk and this year I chose a cactus due to my failure to maintain a regular watering schedule with previous, more needy plants. The working...

A cool side effect of this when used en masse dans le studio is that you can listen to other people's music though iTunes Music Sharing. Now, with names like "MD", "teeniebopper", and ";)" your guess is as good... View full entry

    One of the things that helped cement my decision to come to the GSD was visiting the reception for admitted students in the Spring. When visiting columbia I was given a cold welcome and told to "wander around and ask one of the students if you want an opinion." The person who 'welcomed' me to the... View full entry

    To people not familiar with the GSD, perhaps the most suspicious term thrown around here is not "phenomenologically", "a priori" or any of the other terms disscussed in the comments of this site. No, it's "Butt Mate." I first heard this term in the halls when I was visiting the school to hear a... View full entry

    One of my jobs while interning at SOM SF was cutting and folding a number of booklets going out for client presentations. During this time I became close friends with the straight edge, and it was then that I discovered the Pacific Arc. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Rolls Royce of straight... View full entry

    We all know that architecture is not cheap, but it always surprises me at the beginning of the semester how much money I spend on supplies. This year we're only at $40 so far, all of which I spent today on a pretty clean second hand drawing board with borco attached. My friends think I'm weird... View full entry
