I can never get my homework done when I need to go online & find things to do it. It's not because I get distracted with Facebook or Twitter or anything.. I always start out in the right place but then clicking on one page leads me to another, & then a cool DIY article, & then to someone's blog (which I then have to bookmark or start following), & then to their Twitter (which I'll add too), but I won't get stuck on there, backtrack & then to something else. I'm somewhat staying on topic, but it's 3am & I feel like I'm going mad with the need to find more interesting stuff.

I've been doing some "research" (if you call poking around on Google image search as research) for my Design Process project of creating a dream closet for my pretend client Nellie. Over Thanksgiving break Steve & Nellie invited me over (& thank god they did because if they hadn't I would've been eating spam & eggs instead of turkey & mashed potatoes) & Nellie was showing me some of her favorite shoes & purses (because her closet is in the guest bedroom & she was cleaning it up for me to sleep). All of her super expensive, name brand, amazing labels I've never seen in real life were all tucked away into little boxes & bags & crammed into a tiny closet that's even smaller than my crappy apartment's. If I had nice expensive things like that, they'd be out on display & I would show them proudly, & then when other people would gawk at it all I'd just be like "Oh, yeah, that. It's no big deal." & that's when my project idea struck me. I need to make a dream closet for Nellie! Turn an entire room into her new closet, set everything out as if it were a store, & make it super classy & chic (yes, it's 3:15am & I just tried spelling chic like "sheek" & could not for the life of me understand why it got a red underline).

I'm not even sure what I'm supposed to come to class with though. The teacher said she wanted a floor plan (or an idea of one?) but on a 30x30" piece of paper? Not only is that freaking huge, but whaaaaat kind of scale are we talking about? I definitely remember her saying she didn't want us to get complicated by doing more than one room, but she might have also said something about this room being like 900 sq. ft? That's waaaaay bigger than what I'm working with in real life here, how am I supposed to picture that? I love my design process teacher, but honestly I think the class is kind of a joke with all the "do whatever you want just for fun" assignments & now with our final project being totally unclear. I just don't think I'm actually learning anything out of this class & I feel like it should be demoted to an after school club. Which I would totally sign up for.

Aw crap, now I'm looking at photography sites. -_-
