The last week has been pretty crazy. I had a group project to finish for Friday which turned out fine but was a bit stressful to get finished. Our class got a week extension to finish up our conclusions which is nice but it’s good to know most of the work is over and done with. I took these photos a bit over a week ago when I was working on my midterm presentation for our design studio. Most studios had midterms on the 15th so the model hall was pretty crazy.
I had an interesting weekend for the most part. Friday I met up with some friends from my studio [including a few fellow Canadians ] and went to this medieval restaurant in Delft. It was a pretty fun experience! In a way I regret bringing my camera but there was only candlelight so I don’t think many of the pictures would have turned out anyways. We ate soup from bowls with clunky wooden spoons, had to manage to eat all our meat and veggies sans cutlery and had a sing-along sessions in dutch/english with the restaurant’s minstrel [ha!]. Afterwards we met up with some more friends and ended up going to some dorm party which was kind of lame but we made it fun anyways. I was feeling a bit under the weather Saturday so I spent the day relaxing. Today I took it easy for the most part but I was feeling a bit better in the afternoon so I met up with some girls from studio. As for what we did, I’ll post more about that soon [once I get my film developed]. I’m pretty excited about these pictures.. we’ll see how they turn out but it will be something a little different…
Anyways, I hope everyone had a nice weekend!

I’m not used to studio/school being closed on weekends, but I guess in some ways it’s good. I was able to get out and enjoy the Saturday market a bit this morning but the weather is so nice, it’s making it almost impossible to get any work done. Maybe if school was open and I was surrounded by a bunch of stressed out students I would be a bit more productive…
I took the first photo while walking around Delft and the second is my studio [before it got messy]. Aside from all the work I have to do this weekend will be good, and it’s already gotten off to a great start. Hope everyone else is enjoying the weekend too, wherever you may be!

I’m giving myself a bit of a breather tonight.. it’s been a busy week. I actually expected to be at school until 9 this evening but luckily my design studio finished earlier than planned. Anyways, this past week has been fun.. a bunch of firsts. First time having “haring” [pickled herring served with onions, typically Dutch and surprisingly better than expected], first time falling off my bike [gravel+bike path under construction=danger], first time going to an organic restaurant in Holland [it was in Rotterdam and it was really gooood] and first time going on an amusement park ride in the market square of an old dutch town.
Last Friday I decided to take my camera around with me all day.. started off at the apartment and ended on the way home from the pub later that night. I should do it more often I think! This weekend I’ll take a bunch of my film in to be developed so hopefully I’ll have more analogue stuff to share soon!
