ithika: (the merch is sick)
First of all, I would like to say that I am sad that I am using Xjournal, which is a free livejournal client, when I now am possessed of Macjournal, which is not free and I got in the Macheist bundle. I'm probably just retarded, but the other day when I wrote a whole huge big entry in that thing and then posted it to LJ, it boned all of my HTML so much that I couldn't be arsed to fix it. Now that entry (which was about fish tanks) is just a jumbled mess, a scummy film floating at the top of my private entries. You won't see it unless I can be bothered to fix the code. There's a lot of code. I don't think you'll see it.
So if anyone could shed some light on how to use the damn thing, that would be cool.
Otherwise I'll like google it or whatever *mumble mumble*.

So I'm writing a report on this thing called On the Couch that we did for Professional Practice. It's a giant group assignment (the group is like 30 people or more), which I'm sure you can imagine is a nightmare before you even do anything.
I was part of the group that set up the questions (we have guests come in to our lecture theatre and we ask them questions relating to a theme we were given), which went rather smoothly and was stupidly easy for 15% of the unit's mark. The next group actually asked the questions of our guests and ran the event. The final group wrote a transcript of the event, took photos, filmed it.
Cut for ranting about incompetence:  )pretty simple job done pretty badly. Makes me angry.

But other than that it's actually turned out to be a pretty interesting analysis of the architectural profession. Or the design profession I suppose, because there was also a Landscape Architect and an Urban/Interior designer. All qualified designers, anyway.
I might post it once I've finished my final draft. (I know! I must have learned something from completing a Bachelor's degree, because now I'm finally organised enough to do a first draft! Not that organised though : I have a lot of other shit to do before Monday... it would have been good if I hadn't been sick last week. Or if I had known that I was going to be. Then I probably wouldn't have done all that fish tank stuff on Wednesday. Oh, who am I kidding? Of course I would...)

Oh yeah. I want one of those Merch/Flesh Reaper hats from the PA store. But I think I will wait.

So I've just organised my page layouts how I like 'em, and now I have discovered some things:

Drawing Status Panic Level
Ground Plan95% finished - awaiting feedback 
First Floor Plan95% finished - awaiting feedback 
Second Floor Plan95% finished - awaiting feedback 
Roof Planunstarted 
Section AA85% finished - awaiting feedback 
North ElevationUnstarted... I don't nuuu 
South ElevationUnstarted... it's just a box though 
East ElevationUnstarted 
West ElevationUnstarted 
Detailed Section 1:50Unstarted - unsure of how much detail is needed 
Section BBUnstarted - it's a little section 
Section CCSee above :P 
Wall Sections??? HAU DO I MAEK 
Details30% finished - how many? What scale? How much is too much/little? 

So I suppose what this table shows is that overall, I'm slightly edgy, but feeling pretty confident. The creeping doom (that would be the red) hasn't quite yet gotten a foothold this semester. This is good. So. If I say that I am going to move my due date from the 29th (folio day, 2 days before I leave for Europe) to one week before, on the 22nd... Well. I feel slightly more edgy, but not a great deal. So.The plan. Yes, yes, I know you don't care, but you don't have to read it now, do you?

This is where it gets QUITE A LOT more boring, so I cut it. An hour by hour breakdown of the next few weeks of my life! Yay! )

If I managed that, I would really be on to something there. To bed with me! This kind of planning actually does help me, for those of you questioning its worth. And I know you are. :P
