    Something forgotten, fun, real, and amazing (ya, architecture)

    Ok... I have to let the cat outta the bag.

    Date 1 = Estimated US population of 300,000,000.
    Date 2 = Estimated World population of 10,000,000,000.

    Something forgotten
    - Rating of SCI-Arc Professors... pretty accurate.
    - Also, toothpaste works as a good blemish medicine before bed and on mosquito bites :)

    Something fun
    - Music Genome Project in use
    - What do you want to do with your life?
    - Google Earth Locations of my Solo Projects

    Something real
    A friend and I closed escrow on a beater in a great location locally. Design is at the engineer. House is 80% ripped down. Design development is being furthered in Jay Vano's DD class. My best friend is the contractor (fellow surfer), and our other main partner is an electrician (fellow surfer). It's pretty cool to compare the 3 design iterations against my previous home remodel when school started. Trying to keep within a respectable budget and also push a little bit of an architectural envelop is proving to be a challenge, but a worthy one.

    Getting back to the nitty gritty of building something completely my own has been a bit of an architectural communion. Keeping one foot rooted in a real project and the other in a more theoretical thesis is an ultimate way to transition from grad school back to the real world and hopefully academia within a few years. Build people!
