  1. How many different ways can I put together a cube, a plane, and a line?
  2. Is this acrylic solvent going to ruin my reproductive system?
  3. Should I spend 2 hours watching Lynda.com courses to be more efficient in InDesign, or should I spend 2 hours inefficiently trying to move boxes around (and then at least I'll be done with this project)?
  4. If I have to shoot 1000 photos for this assignment, is it cheating to put my shutter on continuous and take 3-4 pictures for every shot and angle?
  5. Should I spend 2 hours watching Lynda.com courses to be more efficient in Illustrator, or should I spend 2 hours inefficiently trying to remove segments from a line (and then at least I'll be done with this project)?
  6. How many more cuts can I get out of this exacto knife blade before it dulls and ruins my prototype?
  7. What's the most abstract way I can represent a pelican?
  8. If they told us during orientation not to laser cut foam core because it produces poisonous chlorine gas, WHY ARE ALL THE OLDER STUDENTS LASER CUTTING FOAM CORE?
