262 days. That's how long it's been since the last entry in my writings.
It's safe to say that it's been a very busy nine months in my world.
Evidently, it is difficult to find the time to contribute to my online writings, which I feel intrinsically uneasy about. I find writing to be mentally cathartic and helps me cope with problems that come up throughout my journeys; strangely, extracting my thoughts and putting them within the public realm brings closure. In addition, personifying and describing encounters and ideas assist me in developing my professional and technical skills. There has been a gaping hole in these last few months, and it's taken this long to realise what may help fill it in.
So I'm going to make a pledge: at least one new writing entry a week for the rest of the year, no matter what. I won't let this escape again; if not for your benefit, then for my own. Life moves at a blistering pace, and there needs to be time to pause and reflect.
Later this week, I will be publishing a discussion on the discourse that occurred last weekend at Risk, the 2015 National Architecture Conference in Melbourne. After that, I'll be inputting more entries into THE INTERN Writing Series - something that won't finish for a long time. Not because my time as an architectural intern is limited, but because I will never stop being a student of architecture.
Graphic design pieces that I've been toiling on - both commissioned or otherwise - will also periodically be uploaded. My most recent one, the Bad Fold-It that was featured in this year's PROSH, was added a month ago, but I failed to update everyone on it. They will also be available to purchase if enough of you want it.
Looking forward to getting back on track. If you feel so inclined, you can subscribe to receive all my writings in your inbox - just throw in your details in the box at the top of this page.
