Documenting my day is quite an experience. Sometimes I am unable to capture moments because I get so caught up in them I forget.. for example meeting my friend Carl’s doggie and going ape-sh*t because I was so excited to see her and play with her.. Other times it’s important to just take a moment in, and stopping to take a photo or remembering to do so… doesn’t happen… and yet other times, it just feels intrusive… I am still using my hand-held Fuji-Film since I can just slip it in my pocket. My Nikon D80 is way more intrusive and not as easy to carry around… I’ll find or come up with a happy medium soon..

MIT Media Lab building designed by the Tokyo-based architectural firm of Maki and Associates. This is a very successful building in my assessment. It works well, the users are happy, the detailing superb and thoughtful, and the natural light is well used in one’s experience of the spaces.

Looking at case studies that capture our ideas and that can serve as examples for what we want to do…

Papers to read and write for my Patrick Winston class… A blank sheet of paper can be so darn scary! Arghhh…

Another 2 hours later.. and I am finally finished with this paper.. Yup, it’s 4am and I am calling it a day.

This is my typical day at MIT. Classes, running from one meeting to another, then sitting down to assignments later than I would really like to… So happy moments are left our because they were happy and pulling out  a camera was the last thing on my mind…

Have an awesome day! Dance!!!!
