Geeky's not really the right mood but ehh what can you do?

Anyway, I had a kind of productive day today so I thought it would be ok to have the evening off, you know, to better prepare myself for a weekend of hardcore super study.

I still haven't written my Building in Brief Asisgnment - I'm going to give myself until 12pm tomorrow, and then anything after that is going to become an "all nighter on Monday" job. (Yes, it's due on Tuesday.)

I also have to write a little speech on this essay that I have to think up the topic of and then write all by myself for Tuesday. It's not really worth anything, except if you don't do it there is a penalty of 10%. Does that make sense? From what I understand, the thing itself isn't going to get me any marks, but if I don't do it 10% will be deducted from my final score. And I suppose it's in my best interests to do it.
That is half the purpose of this entry - I thought maybe if I wrote a bit about my topic, I could.. have.. ideas.

I'm talking about my essay on Green Roofs and high density living in Australia. Cut for maybe boring )


I am so tempted to buy things since the Australian dollar is doing so well at the moment and since I have money for the first time in ages, but I have to be good. Also, the things I want are more expensive than my disposable income.
Now I'm going to link you to things. I'm going to cut it again because I like LJ cuts. Also because it is probably boring. :p
When I have money I will probably be the Steampunkingest Architect )
Ah well, enough daydreaming. I suppose I should go to bed!

P.S Leather Costume Thing
I don't want this, but it's amazing. Leather wings! They'd probably look/feel pretty neat. Ok, maybe I would just like some big dragon wings to wear. Maybe that would be amazing. I should learn leatherworking.

I just found the most amazing Steampunk Clothing store just now.
Oh man, I can't wait until I have A Real World Job and Have Money so that I can actually buy things like these when I find them on the internet.

I've cut it because I've included pictures.
SRSLY THOUGH, you should check it out if only to make fun of my tourment. :P


In other news, hopefully I haven't lost your attention yet: bold to catch your attention, people who have opinions on bookshops, and what a nice, cosy and small bookshop should have in it, Please comment!

I have to include a 40m2 (Mine is a colossal 42m2 instead) bookstore in my studio building and I want to make it nice.

I want to capture a vibe sort of like what Unisfa clubroom's Quiet Corner (you know the one - next to the GM cupboard)has. The bare materials of the walls will be polished concrete (you probably don't like polished concrete... I think you have to have it beaten into you by architecture school. TADAO ANDO1, that's all I have to say.).
I think the shelves and the floor will be a relatively unfinished natural material like jarrah, if I'm allowed. If I'm not allowed (poetics and all that crap) I'll be using an unfinished wood formwork for some feature panels. (A lot of UWA buildings use wooden formwork. Formwork is what the concrete is set in.) And built-in seats in between some of the shelves.

Any suggestions? I'll post some drawings. Any comments at all are helpful, like what you like in a bookshop, whether you would want to be able to read while in the shop, if that's weird, light quality... Anything!

(Oh my god LJ autosave I L U. I'm using IE because I'm using bootcamp and oh god I hit backspace and nearly died.)
