Unless your school has a culinary arts program, it’s a pretty safe assumption that even though the cafeteria food will be better than that of any public school system, it’s still going to suck sometimes.
That’s the case with Café Scad— fondly, SCafé. Some days, it’s not too bad. Others…stomach-ache inducing. Sometimes, a break is definitely necessary.
This weekend, a friend and I tried out a bunch of different restaurants in Savannah. Savannah has lots of great food in places ranging from Paula Deen’s famous Lady and Sons to an assortment of seafood places down on River Street. The great thing about being both a college town and a tourist destination, is that it has such a wide variety. There’s something for everyone. With so much to choose from, it can be lots of fun to just explore and try different things. After all, it’ll be a great change from the usual cafeteria food.
So, I guess my advice is really to treat yourself. Every once in a while, take yourself out to dinner. Maybe make an event out of it with a couple of friends. Explore. Try something new. Even if you’re tight on a budget, try to set aside a couple of bucks for a meal every once in a while. Or even just dessert. A little change of pace can be very relaxing and refreshing.
Perhaps I’ll do a few posts on a couple of neat little restaurants in the Savannah area, for anyone interested in SCAD or just visiting Savannah.
I’m not really a huge horror fanatic. In fact, I’m simply awful with horror.
Which is why I can’t play Amnesia: The Dark Descent alone.
Fuck that “you don’t get the whole experience” bullshit. No. Uh-uh. Those people at Frictional Games are horribly sick and twisted developers. They know how to scare the pants off of people. Hard. Fucking. Core.
I just played it for a couple of hours with my neighbors, and damn…all 3 of us were definitely scared shitless. Hopefully I won’t have nightmares tonight?
However, this really is an awesome game…despite the fact that I’m absolutely terrified of it.
My 3D Design professor says I need to do more extensive visual research in my sketchbook for each project (which will consequently bring up my sketchbook grade, haha). What she means is that instead of coming up with a concept and finding reference pictures and sketching my concept, she wants to see more “general research”.
For example, we’re just about to start an open planar structure. She wants me to do research and look at other artist’s work, or buildings, or whatever to get ideas. This is all fine and dandy, except that she wants 10+ pages of this for every project. Now, I’m all for research, but I can get an idea of what I’m going for by printing out a couple of neat examples I find, then researching my specific concept. This maybe takes 2-3 pages. But 10-15? It feels like an excessive waste of paper and printer ink.
I’m definitely going to strive to add more concept sketches and specific research, because I can see where that helps. And, reluctantly, general research as well. But really, is it all that important to have 10 pages of other people’s work in your sketchbook, instead of maybe just a couple of examples then moving on to research & develop your own concepts?
I don’t know, maybe I’m just missing the point. It feels unnecessarily excessive. What do you think?
Hanging out with your friends and staying up all night until 4, 5…maybe 6:00 AM is really fun! …Until it starts to screw with the rest of your life.
Don’t get me wrong, I love hanging out with all of my friends and having them over all of the time, but I’m really starting to feel the late nights catching up with me. It’s really bringing down my productivity and the quality of my work. We’ll be up until some ungodly hour and then sleep literally all day, only dragging ourselves out of bed just before class. And even when I do get up, I feel perpetually groggy.
I really don’t like this lifestyle. It’s fun to stay up every once in a while, but now it’s getting old. I need to get myself back on track as best I can.
Just heard about this. Apparently Google brought their Street View camera inside 17 different art galleries around the world. Now, over 1,000 different works of art are online. Each museum picked 1 work for a 7-billion-pixel photograph. The MoMA uploaded Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night. You can zoom in on these super high-res photos to view even the smallest details…everything from an individual brush stroke, or crack in the paint.
The goal of the project is to inspire and hopefully pique people’s curiosity to learn more about art. I encourage you to check it out, it’s neat stuff.
