01/20/07

Well the new semester is about to start and has it been exciting. Classes were suppose to start last Wednesday but were postponed till Monday because of the ice storm. I returned to Springfield last Friday to beat the storm, I did but then I got to enjoy all of the after effects. First off, all of Drury, as well as most of Springfield lost power. Then as you walk around there were tree limbs falling everywhere wreaking all sorts of havoc. The first night Patrick, Bob, and I spend the night at Bob's parents house, the next day it lost power. The next night we stayed at James Couch's house along with JAG (James also). We left and two hours after that they lost power. The third night we stayed at Josh's parents house where they had a generator. Then the remaining nights we stayed at the FSC (Finley Student Center) where they had power from a generator and mattresses for us to sleep on. We finally got power back Wednesday night for a total of six days without power in our apartment. Also Phase I and Phase II of College Park (I live in Phase II) were the last places on campus to regain power. Then Thursday we discovered that some pipes has burst and that we didn't have water pressure, but it returned later that afternoon. So lets just say I have an interesting return to Drury.

Well the semester is winding down and finals are approaching. I am in a good mood since I had my final project critique yesterday and it went well. They liked my design and I got some good feedback from my critics. I will be coming home December 16 or 17, I haven't decided yet. Looking forward to some time at home for longer then 4 days. See everyone later.

This past week I went to Arkansas for the day on an architecture fieldtrip. I went to see Thorncrown Chapel. It is a 48 foot tall chapel made of timber and class. It was really interesting to see. Then everyone who went (all of the second year architecture students) ate at Bubba's BBQ, it was good. Then half of us went to another chapel called the Cooper Chapel that was about an hour away. It is alot like Thorncrown but it is made out of steel and is a little more gothic. I posted pictures on photobucket, here is the link:

Edit: OK the link should work now

Well it has been a busy week so far. I have spent it working on a site model for my design class with 11 other people. Its a big model and unfortunatly we are still working on it, but this time the entire class is helping. Next week on Thursday, I will be going to Arkansas for the day for a fieldtrip. We are going to see a building I can't remember the name of so I will get out of classes for the day. Unfortunatly I have a cold right now but hopefully I will get over it soon.

Well it has been a while since I have updated and have heard people complaining a little, so here you go. I have been busy lately with classes but I am surviving. I just finished mid-terms and getting ready for the other half of the semester. Things are going good here in Springfield and I am having fun. I have also finalized the dates and I am going to Japan Dec. 30- Jan. 6 to go see my friend who is there for a year abroad. Otherwise nothing new and I will try to keep the blog updated more. :)
