Update From Uarts

hey, so I promised my co-workers at amec that I'd update them every so often on my blog just to update how college life is and what I would be making so I'm basically doing that now.
I meant to do this earlier but it it's only been recently that I've completed projects and stuff aaand over the last week(ish) I've been battling the Work Load Rapids but my canoe is starting to come along nicely so hopefully I wont drown ;)

So yeah I guess I'll start with my dorm:
My lil' corner

my roommates are so awesome they didn't mind that I brought in my bike while it rained

my pillow pets and dog. Not much of a replacement for sam unfortunately

This is the entrance to our room, the day before I moved in I learned how to make these origami stars and strung them so I decided to hang them there
some People:

right so I haven't gotten pictures of everybody yet  but I do have a number of photo's consisting of people I see quite often so:
Photo 1) Guy with curly hair is Anthony, Girl behind the gay umbrella is Brielle, Guy holding the gay umbrella wearing an awesome hat and looking uber happy is Michael, a friend from my Foundation class.
Photo 2) Anthony and Brielle fake fighting. meal time is never boring
Photo 3) Suspicious looking Anthony and Garian- obviously a very cool guy for being white with dreds and a vegetarian. (he also loves cheese)
Deleted Photo 4) One of my two super awesome roommates Zoe who is korean, a super clean drawing, eating ramen and a member of the animation army. *picture not approved of so was removed with haste
deleted Photo 5) the second super awesome roommate Jess (not jessica) who loves disney movies, worked at a library and agrees with me that making art out of actual books is creepy, is scared of Chucky from that movie Child's Play, loves fall/ wearing layers, and wants to go to britain. She's also a member of the animation army *picture not approved of so was removed with haste

Aaaand projects so far which are completed and in my possession:

You might have seen the kite hanging next to the spinny thing on my wall.  And yes it flies

Drawing Squares in 2D

My 3D teacher put my folded paper project (star, second to the right) on display it made me feel really special.

other projects on display, people make awesome stuff here

Another square drawing in 2D

oooh the lines

a bird sketch of no academic importance

Now curvy lines are in the boxes :D

I made this portfolio which hangs on my wall because there is no room anywhere else except under my bed to  put my stuff. Its made out of cardboard which used to support a portfolio bag, tape, and coat hangers to keep the pictures from bending over
Yeah so thats the jist of it. Classes are interesting to say the least. Drawing has become my most difficult class, it's like boot camp for drawlers. 3D is refreshingly new, makes you use creative parts of you brain not as required when doing flat work. 2D is hard but a little less boot-campish, history is very fun and writing is proving to be easier than previously anticipated. Glass works is basically cut and paste glass, no blowing or melting/ molding. :p
