dreaming of doorknobs

this week got off to a great start!  in drafting class on monday two people were no shows so i got a table! woo hoo! perhaps my dreams of some sort of a plague hitting my classmates is coming true..... i didn't have to use my big wooden board. it was awesome! i still haven't mastered that darn handwriting but am really trying...

and the other guy trying to get into class? the kid, as i am now referring to him... he was there too. but, in my humble opinion, he is not nearly as serious about getting into the class because he still hadn't bothered buying any of the materials needed for class (you know, paper, pencils, rulers, etc) and kept borrowing from those around him (me included) which was kinda annoying...  lots of drafting homework this week (that is one of the things i didn't miss about being in school)...

interning was also great yesterday. i was sent to a very cool glass tile manufacturer to pick out tile options for one of the designers. i would never have known about this place on my own.... adding it to my growing list of resources! i was also researching bathroom faucet fixtures and door knobs for one of the designers...  some of you might find doorknobs boring but i have to say that i was loving looking at all the options... this only reinforces my hunch that i am finally on the right career track!   i am already offering my services free of charge to friends and friends of friends (in general, people that are employed and have money to spend) so that i can start designing and building up my portfolio! hopefully i won't be an almost 40 year old intern forever!

oh and that not so nice gal that sits the next cubicle over? yeah, she's still not nice. but i have now moved to a spare computer right next to my favorite designer's workspace. this computer is in a super awkward spot (i have to shift my chair anytime someone needs to walk by to go to the bathroom) and not as cush as the official intern cubicle (who knew there was such a thing as a cush cubicle?) but i don't care... its even better for me to stalk this designer and be right there should she have a fun assignment to send my way.

i'm getting ready to take a trip up the coast this weekend with my intern bff.... first stop, hearst castle and then ending it with the alameda market in san francisco... i hear it is an amazing flea market and i can't wait to check out all the vintage finds waiting for me!

until next time....
