Snippet of the Day: “Is it me, or is there three turkey outside our door?”

Haven’t done Snippet for a while, but I can’t resist this time.

It was around 8:25 in the morning. I was rushing, hoping to get to San Luis Obispo Museum on time since I promised to volunteer in… oh, 8:30 (Yep, I bike very fast today)

I open the door. I have not spoke a single word yet, since it is morning and my only housemate Lauren is sleeping. I look up.

I blinked.

I blinked.

I spoke the first sentence today.

“Is it me, or is there three turkey outside our door?”




My brain was blank for several moment, if not temporarily short-circuited. It was soon follow by, “Wait, is there four… No, five? Wait, are they really turkey? What the heck are they!?”

Th grayish, thin, turkey bird simply just walk down the tree shrub, completely ignoring me while I try to pick up my jaw up from the ground.

Ah, the wonder of living beneath a mountain and suburban. Mountain Lion on my street the first year. Wild deer, raccoon family with babies, crane, vultures, giant cat and giant fish near Stenner Glenn during second and third year. Then black widow outside the window and five wild turkey first thing in the morning during fourth year…

Next I know, I will see a bear.

Edit: I have not seen a bear in SLO. However, less than a year later, a bear did wandered into SLO, although it was at the other side of the town… Jinx?


Meet our class’s newest mascot!

Let me present my class’s newest mascot. Actually, is my classmate’s dog. Her pet-sitter isn’t available in the summer. They sit right behind me, so I get to look at it and be close to it the whole time. He’s really obedient too – doesn’t bark, and has recently learnt to not bite (unless the guys in my class tease it. But they are playing around, and the guy doesn’t mind the baby bites). It like to chew on shoe laces and… my sweater sleeve?

Isn’t it the cutest? It’s just a baby, less than a year old. Tiny, soft, and fluffy… It will probably be the thing I miss most from summer studio :D

Well, not true. Studio was fun too. The studio project have to do with making a Landmark Building in San Francisco for the America Cup Yacht Race. It was the first time I had finish a project with ArchiCad. One of my inspiration is the rocks near the pier, with the water flowing up and down around it. I wish I had express it more now, but as one may say, architecture project is never really done. In the end, I even manage to put it in my portfolio. I am pretty happy for now.
