my excuse for visiting this fancy Chicago office building sprouted from friend Christine in my Digital Studio class mentioning that she signed up for a free Ruby on Rails workshop called RailsGirls--an event series all about exposing girls and women to programming and technology. their main website says it started in Finland. that's cool.
not-quite-finished-yet-but-sort-of-usable list-making application I built. the internet is welcome to add random new items to the list, if it would like. I want to keep working on it. it'll be tricker without that roomful of inspiration, but I'll do my best to struggle on.
soon all those brilliant leaves will be blown away and we'll have snow everywhere. soon my first semester here will be all over. the thought that in three weeks finals will be upon us is pretty thrilling, even if this humble scenery isn't.
