If There's A Rocket Tie Me To It

First of all, (Sorry, Britt) I need your address so I can send out my holiday cards. I think I only have the current address for about three of you, so please email me at Amanda234 AT gmail DOT com because I would love to send each of you a card. I really really would. Thank you.





I've spent a total of about eight hours working on the picture above in SketchUp, and it's still not close to being finished. I need to get rid of the line on the wall (when I erase it the whole wall falls apart) and add soffit. And hard ware. And I'm sure a ton of other things.

I've spend this whole semester procrastinating because December seemed like a such a long way away. In this class, the whole grade is essentially based on designing and presenting a house. There are only three times in the whole semester we get grades for this, so each point is pretty important. I was never worried because really? December? That's a long way away. Except for that the entire thing is due TWO WEEKS from yesterday. Good lord.

It's not like it's an easy two weeks either, the only days I have off work between now and then are tomorrow, Thanksgiving, and the Saturday after Thanksgiving (because I'll be at a wedding).

I forsee a serious lack of sleep in my future. Stupid procrastination.

I'm pretty sure my address is one that you have, since you sent me cookies.

Maybe you could just make a shack instead of a house, with one room, no inner walls, and a bucket of ice instead of a refrigerator?

Oooooooo, I might have to download SketchUp. I have a strong interest in architecture but I use a similar skill-set in a different field.

Is the program pretty decent?

Still, that is so cool. I must finish up my thank you cards and then I'm going to see if anyone online wants one.

Avitable- Thankfully refrigerators are imported pictures, so it'll be a shack with one room, no inner walls, and a refrigerator.

Ajooja- It's pretty good- It's the easiest one I've found for 3-D architectural modeling. It's really intuitive You can import your CAD drawings so you have a baseline of where to put your walls and whatnot. It's definitely worth checking out.

Robin- Really? You're not doing holiday cards? You seem like you're so into the holiday spirit.

I can't afford the stamps on holiday cards :( sigh.

That homeless man I met on the street had more cash on him then I did lmfao!

:) I emotionally am sending everyone cards...in my imagination, where it doesn't cost any money :)

Embrace your inner procrastinist. Hard work pays off eventually, but laziness pays off now!
