So close! And yet so far…

Spent most of the day studying for my Rome exam, wrote my American Art paper on Maurer’s At the Shore (1901), so we’ll see how it goes tomorrow… Almost…to.. Thanksgiving…

Also, scanned, signed and uploaded some of my film prints from this past spring, check them out: here

Finished my paper at 7:40 this morning, left for physical therapy at 7:45, came home and did a little bit of proofreading before heading up to school for my Rome interview at noon… Came home, slept for an hour and a half, went to lecture, turned in my paper and breathed a deep, shaky sigh of relief. I made it until 9 PM so I feel like I owe it to myself to pass out, seeing as my eyes won’t uncross… Man, I feel old all of a sudden… Good night.

Oh, the photo? One of the lanterns outside Suzzallo Library.

24 whole hours

Today was actually okay… I went to work, then school, snapped a picture outside Meany Hall on the way to pick up books at Suzzallo, came home and missed the boy. Laaaame. I wasn’t nearly as upset as I thought I would be, which is good, I think, because it means that I’m so much more comfortable and confident in our relationship. Yay? I think so.

Well, day one has come to a close. Only 52 left to go…

Today was filled with faculty meetings, a midterm exam and paper completion. Met with Prof. Ann Huppert who is a specialist on the architecture of the Italian Renaissance, took my midterm (nailed three out of four questions… the fourth one, well, not so much – but I realized the correct answer shortly after walking away. Ugh), turned in my landscape paper on A Country Home, sat through lecture, then met with Prof. Estelle Lingo to discuss, well, my future. We ended up planning, plotting and discussing for over an hour and she is one of the most phenomenal professors with whom I have ever had the pleasure of taking a class.

In other news it’s DONE – midterm COMPLETED, paper CONQUERED – now, just to get through the next 47 hours…

Of Hippodamian grids…

Today was another lazy kind of day; didn’t have class until 4:30 so I hung around, caught up on laundry and did some reading. On the ay home, dropped Alanagh off at the park and ride only to find that some rude POS parked at such an angle that he hit her car with his gigantic Suburban AND LEFT IT PARKED THERE, TOUCHING HER CAR. WHO DOES THAT? and THEN a gigantic spider crawled out from under her car as she backed out, so I’m standing in the park and ride parking lot at 10 PM dancing around and shrieking like an idiot trying to find my car keys. Quality.

Class, faculty meeting (I was told not to bother applying to graduate school until I knew exactly what kind of career I want to pursue — as if any graduating senior knows what they’re doing – UGH!), more class, and then a FREE SCREENING of WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE a whole TWO DAYS before it will release – WHOOO! Unfortunately, I was kind of disappointed, but it was kinda cute…

Atomic Architecture

Today was kind of a lazy day; didn’t have class until 4:30 PM so I headed up to the BE library to make photocopies of articles for the professor I’m researching for… The Architectural Record from the 1950s are grossly huge bound copies with some of the most hilarious advertisements…oh man…

First real day of class (be serious, syllabus week is a joke) kicked off with my graduate seminar on the history of landscape architecture; hung around for a bit with Levi, grabbed lunch with Chester, skittered off to my 17th Rome class to talk about the Council of Trent (as analogous to changing underwear styles) for a couple hours, a bit of a break to check in on the Sick One and then back in that frigid room for an hour and a half of American Art in the 1760s-70s.

Now, I have to say, I am indescribably proud of myself because not only am I caught up on the reading for all of my classes, but I’m ahead! I know, right?! Anyway, up through chapter three of The Man Who Was Thursday and I’m still not quite sure how I feel; it’s not bad or uninteresting by any means, but you know how it is when you’re reading something for someone else’s sake? Yes, well, that’s me.

Oh, the picture? Welcome to campus.

Monday the 13th?

Ok, I know this is an awful photo (twisted, angled, non-parallel, etc.) BUT it pretty much captures how today was: wonky. Spent all day in this lovely building – the University of Washington School of Art – and I’m just glad to be home. It was cool and humid and basically gross September weather. Very uncool, Seattle, very uncool.
