Bloggaday 297 – SPF PWND: Santos Manuel Student Union: An Observation pt 2

Bloggaday 297 – SPF PWND: Santos Manuel Student Union: An Observation pt 2

Oh, jeeze. I’m going to fail this friggin paper…

And welcome back to the Santos Manuel Student Union: An Observation series of Bloggadays. Before we get into the verbose descriptions today, I want to make another little note about this paper

This is for the upper division writing class for the social sciences. These classes have their own writing center to help the students. Apparently though, you have to make an appointment 3 quarters in advance to see them. This is the second paper I’ve tried to get in there, but their appointments have been booked both times.

Anyways, onto the paper wracking my nerves!

Need to play catch-up? No problem! Here are the links to all of the Santos Manuel Bloggadays.

Immediately in the great room, the furniture falls at odds. A pair of matching couches sits a few feet from a semicircle of chairs with a completely different pattern. The couches are clad in domineering forest green squares with a scratchy and beaten tan background. The chairs on the other hand are comprised of a gritty tan and a submissive green that offers its services as an accent rather than dominating the upholstery. The stylistic confusion continues with the rest of the room. Along one wall are half a dozen dark, leather chairs. To accent these, a pair of golden ottomans sits at attention, their color reminiscent of the sands from the great empire that they share their namesake. Other groupings of chairs dot the circumference of the room to offer ample seating for both small groups and large gatherings. The larger groups though must traverse a quick trip of steps that set off their accommodations from the rest of the space. The crowning piece of furniture and at the center of it all is the great round seat. It sits in the middle of the room, forming a circle pointing its sitters outward to the rest of the population and leaving a gap of unutilized space at its epicenter.

Accompanying the surrounding chairs and odd bits of furniture is the occasional plant. The potted plants offer no more conciseness in species than the seating does. The integration of so much diversity though reflects the school’s demographics and continued unity of the student body. The entire design of the building reflects the everyday interactions of the students who use the Santos Manuel Student Union.

With nothing left of the décor to offer the eyes, one’s attention easily drifts up from the scene. That same off-white that can be seen around the building makes up the concave roof that bulges outward. A latticework of steel supports and lights connect the rolling roof with the great white pillars that sprout out at the balcony of the second floor. The seemingly chaotic design offers the support necessary to keep the building upright and safe from everything including the winds and earthquakes that visit the area so often.

What’s pickier than pickier? The Piccaday Light me up that web cam and strap a smile on my face Let the pictures hit the floor I’m gonna pack my pixels and I’m gonna go your way

New to the Bloggaday? These are the essential posts to see

158 – Boxer V Brief – Short, concise joke machine and a DYNAMIC ENTRANCE! to my favorite Bloggadays of the Second Trigaday

159 – A Phthalates-filled Sbarro Breadstick – This was just a funny Bloggaday despite the essence being something no one will get unless the look up what a phthalate is

174 – FNtCCA,aToTbDD– While I think it’s clear I rarely EDIT the Bloggaday, this train-of-thought post shows how much I have to FILTER it…

183 – SotW 13 – This one had it all. Pretty much every bit that’s been a major player in the SotW made its way into this one, so it’s a good one to try.

134 – SotW 5 – This particular Song of the Week featured the characters a bit truer to their original concept. After a while, I started liking Tom too much and changed him a bit which caused changes to Chuck.

227 – PWND: TSHBRotCCPS pt16 was some solid fiction content. Plus, that was probably some of the finest Final Thought I’ve ever thought up.

Close the screen, the awesome’s getting out
