Another 4 day weekend....

This time I MUST apply to grad school. It's do or die. But I'm sooo swamped with homework and D-Lab. I feel really stressed this week. Probably because I spent 30 hours volunteering for ESP last weekend. 2,000 middle and high school students and their parents invaded the campus! Also, taking 2 CI-H classes at the same time is not a good idea. Now I have two 10-page papers due very, very soon. They're both worth a big part of my grade and I need to do a ton of work for them. Good thing I only have one final this semester. I plan to do well on this final.

4 Day Weekend!!

I can't believe it is already November! Where did September and October go? These past two weeks were just crazy. I had a ton of work and not much sleep. So besides sleeping, I have big plans for this weekend. It includes applying to grad schools.

As far as grad schools apps go, I pretty much have everything in place except my essays. And they are the biggest part, of course. I'm dedicating all of Saturday for grad school applications. I'm not even going to look at any other work. Hopefully, I'll get them done, send it off to a few people to look over, and then submit next weekend. That's the plan.

Also, this rammed earth project is coming along pretty well. We went to Home Depot earlier tonight, got wood, and will be building our form on Sunday.

Here's a website that has a lot of rammed earth projects:

Here's a website that was a part of a Masters of Architecture thesis written by someone at MIT. He built the Great Wall of MIT with rammed earth. We met with him the other day. Very cool guy.
