Up since 7am, breakfast, mail, grocery shopping, a little valentines day plotting, studio reassessment done, studio readings done, and about to get ahead in my architecture class, office hours coming up too…
and unintentional double-fisting caffeine isnt a good thing? :)
First day of class again, and the beginning of my last spring semester! Getting ready for GIS II, Studio, T.A.ing for Jr Studio, Arch Research Methods and Thesis Research. Going to be an interesting semester. The grad students have grown in number, and my boyfriend is one of them.
Tomorrow is final presentations for the class I t.a. for and then I’m officially done this semester :)
This is really weird. And I’m so glad that presentations went well today.
Had my first time teaching a class yesterday. It went pretty well - I got some good feed back from the students and I was only a little shaky at the beginning.
I really do appreciate people asking me about L.A. and my opinion of it. When I started in L.A. as a sophomore, I didn’t have anyone to really help me figure things out. I also didn’t have the guts to ask anyone about things or classes.
I just wanted to put that out there.
I think it’s good that people are actively getting involved and interested, even if it’s just a conversation or so. It’s still a good step.
My studio did a charrette with middle school kids today. It went really well and was really inspiring.
A 4th grade boy befriended me and the 6th grade girls were awesome. There was even a 4th grade girl that just was amazing and was basically as in the know about design as we were - her ideas were so fresh and amazing!
I’m leaving this Thursday for Arizona and I cannot wait!
After a short summer of work and basically cutting my ties with my computer I am back. Classes begun on Monday, and so begins the hopeful year and a half journey through LA Graduate school. Wish me luck.
I will still be posting my inspirations and hopes on here as well as hopefully some more of my work, both in progress and completed. I will be trying to make some time for this blog to both keep it current as well as keep my sanity and use it as a break to remind myself of the beauty and potential of LA.
Hotel and flights are booked and registration is done! I’m going to the ASLA 2012 Conference!
Last year’s was really good and I cannot wait for this year!
