haven’t posted in a while! school has been pretty hectic. here’s some class notes on respiratory disorders & a pic of the cartier store in chicago i took last summer (knowing that i could never afford anything from here)

i chose my junior schedule this week! i chose h precalc/trig, h german III, ap stats, ap lit, ap ush, and ap bio. i am NOT looking forward to ap bio since i cheated my way through regular bio in the 8th grade lmao … but it was my only choice other than regular physics. we’ll see how it goes.

Auditorium Building Stained Glass by Jeff Reuben

The Auditorium Building, now Roosevelt University, was the largest structure of its kind in America at the time of its completion in 1890. Designed by Dankmar Adler (1844-1900) and Louis H. Sullivan (1856-1924), the 4,237-seat theater, hotel, and office building earned a national reputation for their firm. Source: Historic American Building Survey (HABS), Addendum to report No. ILL-1007 With direction from Sullivan, the windows were executed in 1889 by the renowned stained-glass firm of George Healy and Louis Millet, which won acclaim in Europe for its designs. It is also rumored that Sullivan’s protege Frank Lloyd Wright had a hand in the designs. Wright, who called Sullivan “master,” was his right-hand man before setting out on his own and had a particular interest in stained glass that continued throughout his career.
