Long day today was the end of a long few weeks. We finally finished and sent off the Decathlon proposal and it looks good. Fingers are crossed and waiting for mid January to find out if our team was accepted but at the moment it is a sigh of relief. That was first thing this morning. Then I got the pleasure of sitting in as a guest critic for the 4th year architecture students 401 studio projects. This is a tough eff-ing semester and as a whole they put out some good work. On a final note, Emily made it into town safe and sound. I was a bit worried for a bit when I couldn’t get in touch with her more than a few hours after dark when the last I heard from her she was heading into the Gila Wilderness alone. She’s no dummy, just one with crappy phone reception. Glad she is here and looking forward to some adventure.
