yesterday was officially “bad left index finger day.” i would like to say that it went on sweet drinking binge, made a few mistakes and that it can’t remember a thing. but today, unfortunately, is a sobering reminder, that crap went down for my left index finger… all along the lines of being an architecture student, of course. the events as follows:
8am - left index finger turned off alarm after sub-four hours of sleep. (ok, that’s just metaphorically painful)
9am - someone handed me chipboard and i got a chipboard-cut. think paper cut, but wider, and deeper, and stingier.
10am - fresh olfa knife slipped and sliced off a chunk of flesh on the tip of my finger. i saw the skin and flab on the cutting mat before i realized what i did. it was a glorious scene as i promptly reworked my final model from being made out of white chipboard to black chipboard.
11am - finished typing, ahem, t-y-p-i-n-g a paper with a bandaged finger. not easy.
2pm - slammed my… yes, still talking about left index finger… in the laser cutter mammoth-of-a-door.
today i worked all day in the shop, fabricating other parts of my model using the band saw, rotary sander, and other power tools and everything went just fine… as i knock on wood… and get a splinter ;/
so lesson learned - have good model making experiences as you prepare for pre-spring break finals. and don’t forget to SAVE as marchstudent says… :)
