re-hash, re-search

I was wondering why it was taking me so very long to research things about induction charging, coils, etc. for the Final Project in my Materials class which is essentially a BA addition to my future [haha NEAR future since I was hoping to make one by next Friday, etc.] portfolio/resume deal and an assembly guide to how my Second DVA Studio Project (you know, the ‘Serenity Stones’ and ‘aging in place’ solution) would realistically be produced and assembled in REAL LIFE and I realized the reason it is taking so long is because I never actually technically figured out all the details when I did the project. Hmm. Whoops. I just remember thinking “Yeah, induction charging is wireless, cool and easy. Sweet.” and just sort of hand-waving the gesture out of the air (and out of ignorance. d’oh.); not my best move ever. But a really good recent move on my part? The killer sentence at the beginning of this blog. Word.

But really, it’s not so bad since I’ve been in the library waiting to plot for 4ish hours and just got done, so I had some free time to kill that I wasn’t spending sleeping… [PS. I’m a big fan of late-night bad grammar, and excessively strange punctuation PPS. I’m giving myself an award for not only A.) my longest blogged sentence ever ((see beginning of blog)), but also B.) the most creative and well-tagged blog post to date ((see end of blog {as in right below the end of this}))]

Onward!

We just submitted all of our presentation boards and process book to T-Square, but I don’t feel 100% relieved yet. I’m too busy trying to think about a thousand things at once – and the fact that I wanted to whip up a portfolio sometime soon. Whoops. Overwhelmed.
Tomorrow I will feel better after some sleep.

and it all came tumbling out.

Now that I have been away from that godforsaken computer lab in 104 for a few days, and have already started our final project for the semester I am feeling a little less completely consumed by bitter rage as I previously felt [circa Friday’s review around 2pm]. I have even gone back to liking packaging, and have even found a stellar site that is all about it The Dieline [thanks to following FFFFOUND! on tumblr that posted some stuff from thedieline.com – isn’t the internet a funny little thing (or rather, never-endingly-huge)?]
I am proud of what I accomplished for the third project in theory and in graphics – which I was actually done with Wednesday night. I am not proud of the “end result” I produced for Friday’s review. I just couldn’t get things together, and it seems as if everything that could go wrong did, of course, go terribly wrong. I think that if every project this semester had gone so generally smoothly as they had been going, that perhaps the karma backlash I would’ve experienced would have been much more devastating than the one that I did have. I was burnt out and angry over being in that stupid, small computer room for so many days in a row with what seemed like nothing to show for it – but, of course, as a simple third year student I had simply forgotten that all projects are for the greater good of THE PORTFOLIO and not necessarily ‘the review.’ Days, MANY extra hours of sleep and some good meals of chips&dip and/or nachos [to ease the ‘WTF STUDIO SUCKED’ pains] later, I am back to being a happy little studio worker and am looking forward to this new project.

Project Four is a serious group project about non-motorized transportation. I’m working with Allison, one of my loverly former roommates, and Chris, a boy that can sketch like nobody’s business, on wheel-related transportation. I’m not usually a group project person, but thus far, I’m very happy with my group and I know that they’re both fantastic designers/hard workers. Looking forward to what this project has in store.
