The brutal truth, that every architecture student...
archimess: So, I’m back on tumblr. Maybe if today I wrote a post like a review from the last few weeks, it might be more interestig, but these past few hell weeks and the great conversation I had with my todays-rae-of-sunshine a while back, made me write this post about the fucked up “movie” some architecture students live in. I was “watching” this movie for some time now, but these last few...
If you had to choose between two precious lives,...
Unfortunately I had to make this decision yesterday… In my hands I was carrying a fragile carton box that contained my very precious PS3! The box was heavy actually because it also had many wires and other computer-related devices. I was carrying my laptop on my shoulder, on one side not across my body, and the bag was half open because it was overloaded with CDs and video games. The strap...
Sephiroth: Tell me what you cherish most. Give me the pleasure of taking it away.
Cloud: I pity you. You just don't get it. There isn't a thing I don't cherish!
Cloud: Stay where you belong... in my memories!
Sephiroth: I will... never be a memory.
Me: *dies of awesomeness overload*
Unfortunately, it seems that I won’t be moving out this weekend, instead it will be next Tuesday or Wednesday, I hate this delay, makes me feel as if I’m floating in space with nothing to do. I’m still excited though!!! new place means a new beginning and hopefully it will help me achieve my only goal, which is to achieve my many dreams!!! (Shame on you if you don’t know...
An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to...
t3chgirl: This student (his name is mentioned at the end of the story) was born a Jew and then developed a belief in the Spinozian approach to creation, which is contradictory to Christianity, but yes he believed in God and I am copying the story the way it was written (by a Christian I assume) because I love the arguments made :) ————- Professor: You are a Christian,...
Our Security Guard is an Architect
I just discovered that our accommodation’s security guard is an architect. Him: What do you study? Me: Architecture Him: Oh, which year? Me: I will start my second in September. (He is a security guard, so of course I didn’t ask him what he does) Him: I’m an architect, specializing in Urban Planning. Me: Oh He spent the next 2 hours showing me his portfolio (digitally)...
Happiness is a mood, not a destination.– I think I agree with this and its opposite at the same time…
I will be moving to my new flat! SO excited!! I need to sort out a few last things though. While packing, I discovered my ‘final model’ from my first individual project in architecture! Seeing it was one of the most terrifying moments of my life!!! (btw, I’m watching Silent Hill now). It was hiding under the bed, it explains all my nightmares and sleepless nights!! I...
On this day last year
Apparently Facebook has this feature of reminding you of a post from the same day last year, like ‘Today in History’. I just noticed it today, I’m not sure for how long it existed, if it existed for long it means that I have a life, if it just came up it means that I’m alert and notice things fast, in both cases I am not the ‘bad’ person…. ehm. On this...
I just noticed...
For some strange reason I wanted to check my timetable for next year, I noticed something while doing so… 140sh: the number of 1st year architecture students, including me, when we started last September. 130sh: the number last January, beginning of 2nd semester. 90sh: the number of 2nd year architecture students starting next month… WHAT?!! I can’t say I’m surprised,...

The Devil's Double
I feel obligated to say something about this movie since I posted its trailer a couple of days ago and said that I was so excited to see it. Well, it was entertaining, I didn’t yawn, even if it was too ‘adult’ for my liking, but this was the reality of the time and place of the story, so I can’t really complain. I wanted it to be more about the politics of Iraq from an...
I had the weirdest dream last night and I rarely dream. It was a combination between Final Fantasy and Harry Potter, it’s very hard to describe; it had the mystery of the Harry Potter world, without the magic of the wands, the magic and the weapons were FF style, kinda like a combination between Victorian, Gothic and Sci-Fi! I saw myself (of course) and 3 or 4 of my friends, it was very...

The Secret Life of Buildings: Monday C4 8:00pm
Today was the first episode. Architecture and design critic Tom Dyckhoff explored how the design of houses influences human behavior. He conducted practical experiments to show the psychological and physical changes of our bodies in response to change in the characteristics of the space, ranging from the amount of light to size and aesthetics. He also discussed some housing regulations and...
I just found out yesterday from my provisional driving license that my “real” driving license, after passing the exam, will be valid until 2061 (when I turn 70) and then I will have to renew it every 3 years. The first thought that came to my mind was: “So this is the year I’m going to die” lol. But it’s very good because in my country we have to renew it every...
