Tonight...

Postby Remyth » Wed Aug 24, 2011 3:43 am

...is the last night I have with my LEGO for quite some time! I am heading off to college tomorrow and, sadly, I can only take my minifigs with me (due to space restraints). However, I do have one last treat coming in the near future and I will still be building (and probably playing as well) with my minifigs while at school. Also, I will be a LOT closer to a LEGO store ( :D ).

I'll be on as much as I can!

Regards,
Thomas Wunz <><

Hey,

Have fun in college, Thomas! Stay away from those mean chemistry professors. :wink:

BTW, I know it's too late to plan this right now, but maybe sometime when you visit home you might consider making up a small kit of bricks to take with you. I've pointed this out in another thread, but Jackie Britton put together this travelling LEGO kit for her journey to visit World Heritage Sites, currently featured on the front page, and she had to pack something small enough that she could take it with her on buses and trains around sites in Europe and Africa:

You could easily have a kit this size in a drawer in your dorm room to make small MOCs. I remember one time Jon Palmer made an even smaller kit of little bits and pieces to make space MOCs. Hmm, here's the Lugnet post. Unfortunately it's not in his brickshelf gallery and his old zemi.net site seems to be down for the count. Chris Maddison has something of the same sort here. Compiling these portable kits to make small MOCs was a bit of a meme in the Space community for a while there:

Of course, with both of those above, you have to sit and think for a while about what are the bare minimum elements to include to make interesting MOCs, and of course you're not going to build full scale castles, etc, but rather small things like microscale etc. At one point I made something similar, though a little larger, to make vigs.

Bruce: I had considered doing something of the sort but I didn't think that I could compile a good enough assortment by the time I had to leave. Also, not being able to build MOCs during my first semester or so at college might be a bit of a blessing in disguise. I may try to come up with something in the future though. Thanks!

Josh: Thanks, mate!

You might be surprised what a little mental break from school work can do for you. Especially, when it's one that still keeps your mind working. Lego is good brain exercising, while still being fairly relaxing.

In fact, my 2nd semester back from my Mission(I'm LDS/Mormon) my buddy's & I were studying for our physics & math finals when they found out I had Lego. We immediately stopped for about an hour in the middle of the night & built random stuff. When we got back to our studies we were re-energized and were able to study that last bit harder than before.

Good luck with college life. I'm so glad that it is behind me and don't have to choose between studying and basically anything else worth doing. I would agree on taking a small amount with you to take a break now and then.

Lol. I studied engineering and still had tons of free time. Enjoy college while it lasts! The real world isn't as easy as you'd think!
