Who am I?
What makes up who I am? Is it what I do or what I see or what I touch or the people I interact with? WHat makes me me?
I am me because I what I do, where I am and what I use. I can say that I am environmentally sound but we all know the old saying of "actions speak louder than words." I am a hypocrit because sometimes I am not environmentally sound. Right now, I am sitting in my room, I have lights on. I'm watching LOST
I have another computer running as I am typing this, I have a refridgerator cooling and my stereo is on so that I have surround sound. Now does that appear to make me environmentally sound and try and conserve energy. Not so much.
So how am I me?
I am an undergraduate at the University of Minnesota attempting to start a Bachelor's of Design in Architecture, not going so well. So what does this mean? I am usually tired from doing so many things. I freak out on the day before something is due, I procrastinate GOD do i ever procrastinate, I work to pay for school and I am trying out this girlfriend thing
But do these things make me me? Somewhat. But what am I? I think what I am is what I imagine, what I draw, what I write that no one knows about no one reads or criticizes. I can explore my fullest potential when I have no one to tell me what I'm doing is wrong or stupid. I am unique. I want to grow up and construct what I can imagine. I want to create an entirely sustainable skyscraper. I want to build a residence that is heated and cooled on a geothermal system alone. I don't want to be constrained, I want to let loose. Open my mind. go BASE jumping to understand wind to building relationships more
I am the future of architecture.
