Is it seriously February already?! Where is the time going!? At our thesis review on Thursday we were informed that we’re already one month into the semester, and we were all shocked. Time is literally flying by. This past week we had our second thesis review, a portfolio review in watercolor, a spatial visit to China Town, and two very ‘real life’ lectures in Professional Practice (we had two guest panels come in to talk our class on the topics of “alternative practices” and “Small, Medium, and Large Firms”). The lectures in professional practice we very interesting and informative, but also served as a wake up call for us all the get those resumes and portfolios done, and get on that job hunt!
On a less serious note, we had the most perfectly timed snow day last last Wednesday, it was the day before our thesis review so I was able to spend the whole day thinking, working, and producing (though we did get out for a few breaks to enjoy the snow). Plus while we were eating lunch we watched as about 10 students erected a 15 ft snowman in the middle of the quad. Talk about determination. I’ll leave you with a snippet of the work I did on that glorious snow day: four boards that describe my chosen thesis site (the abandoned Tremont Tunnel off of Boylston Station) throughout history. Drawing parallels between it’s four ‘lives’ and the changing of the seasons. Enjoy!
