I have wanted to update my blog more than I can explain, but when I have homework on my mind I feel like this would be very unproductive and thus I continue with homework. It's hard to explain what goes through my head when I am smothered with homework, but I can tell you sleep along with blogging and tweeting gets the boot. Not good habits and I full understand that, but with only one more week of school left I will soon have much more time for blogging and tweeting!
These last few weeks of school have been...crazy to say the least! I have been working all term on researching office design, finalized by applying that research to our own design. The best part is we were able to choose the company we want to to design the office space for. It was quite obvious to me that it would be cycling related as none of my class mates would choose something remotely close it and I wanted mine to stand out. WHY? Well not only is this class the highest weighted course and you want to have a good mark, but this project is for a scholarship with Staples Business and Allsteel Office.
Last week on the 30th we had arrange our projects on desks in the classroom so that the panel of designers from Allsteel could select what they thought was the top three projects were and those three students would then have the opportunity to present their project to a panel of interior designers and furniture designers in Toronto on the 18th. Well... the night of the 30th I received a e-mail from my prof saying I was going to Toronto on the 18th.
While my first reacted was SWEET! It very quickly turned into a 'Oh ****!'. I can't explain how much work I have to do in other classes in the last two weeks, but now I have to continue with this project and meet with profs and enhance what I have. Mean while all my classmates are done with that project and only have to worry about other classes.
Once I finally concluded that this is not only a really good opportunity to
win some money to help out with school, but this would be really good networking with interior designers in the industry (I have 8 months off of school coming up, a job would be really handy) I applied my theory I use while biking, 'Just F*** It!' Basically don't hesitate, just go for it!
So to conclude my rant and on the note of cycling, I will be racing P2A on the 17th and on the 18th I will be in Toronto hopefully accepting a scholarship :D
(: *****I will be posting updates on both, as school will be done after the 18th***** :)
...My office is designed for SCOTT...Pics will be posted...
There is promise, as I just took time out of homework to write this!
