I haven't felt the need to eat eggs in a long time. But since becoming my own design/build and taking on this huge project my legs are killing me! Perhaps this is why polyurethane became so popular? I don't know how many coats that requires, but we're putting four coats of shellac on our floors here and it is a beast of a project! BEAST! I am currently doing a simple majority of the dining room, and it took me about 45 minutes to apply a coat this morning. How on earth am I ever going to get any BUSINESS done? haha. Already I had to postpone a business conversation because I was in no position to conduct it when a new acquaintance called earlier. See, when applying shellac you have to move fast lest you get brush marks from trying to touch up what has become tacky. And it gets tacky fast! The alcohol which keeps it in liquid form evaporates quickly. This makes it hard to do right. Why did we pick this stuff again? Oh yeah, something about historical accuracy or something.
So there I am shellac-ing it up when the phone rings, and the hens start making all kinds of fuss over egg time. And in a couple hours I gotta get spiffed up and go networking in Princeton and learn a little something from Bob Hillier about "growing your business" or something. After that I don't get to crash either because in Advanced Modeling we're doing a sort of pin up kind of thing tomorrow, and I'd like to be able to get the students into 3ds Max before class is over. Then I can start to think about networking lunches or whatever.
Oh yes, I would like to get into The Power Lunch Project more. I went to one event and it was fun. I've been waiting for some profit before officially joining because they have a monthly fee that covers all kinds of services. But now that somebody has actually CALLED me from that one event (see above), now I suppose it's time to get on that ball.
Anyway, that's what has been going on here. This week should be more quiet after tomorrow though, because I don't have class on Thursday. Instead the university is having a Day of Service. We all get off of school one day in order to do some community service activity. I'll be helping out in a park for a few hours, but I don't need to come up with a tutorial and think about a lecture for that day. There aren't any other networking events until next week either. So perhaps I'll think about doing some designing, haha. For now, its back to my shellac.
