It is freezing cold, piss-me-off-style Cape Town winter rain, and it's getting on my metaphorical tits.
But despite that, I'm actually feeling pretty solid. Despite a looming final hand-in for Design, one of my Architecture major courses. I do have to hand-draw a couple of A1 plans, finish a detailed SketchUp model and render it, and build a tangible one at 1:100 out Triplex. By Friday.
Yet I'm loving it. I think that's the point at the end of the day. Architecture conditions your brain to think that, while your social life and health are deteriorating, you're achieving something. I guess I am though. I'm avoiding mind-numbingly
The epitome of great writing begins with a pathetic title.
Take 'Great Expectations'. What kind of title is that?
So I love putting either particularly vague or distinctly innocuous titles that barely capture attention.
I prefer to let my love of one liners do that for me.
I'll shall now convert to paragraphs of more substance.
I have slowly but surely begun to use deviantART again after a rather large break. A year to be exact. Because I started studying my undergrad architecture degree, and as many might be aware, we are familiar with the predatory `all-nighter`. Hence leaving little time for private time showing off one's work.
Hopefully nobody will read this. Today I decided to upload some writing, and a few more images. and I was wise enough to decide to use Moz Firefox instead of Chrome. Chrome doesn't allow the chat. Which is somewhat annoying.
Otherwise, it's great not having to write exams at this particular hour. Tomorrow: Engineering Paper 1. Yay. Note my enthusiasm.
