The life of a design student 2…

Waiting for the janitor to open the door....

With plans to hit the sack after my class, I was so high on caffeine this morning that everything around me was just absolutely and mindblowingly amusing(oooh).

To make things even better, it’s a Saturday, so the University of Jordan was beautifully desolate- so desolate that the janitor(with the keys) showed up 35 minutes late, so I spent my morning sitting on the floor in the hallways of the hideously green IT department, amusing myself with my ever-handy Canon.

  1. hmmm, if this black belt of dirt on the wall wasnt to exist, it would look like a hospital!!!

    an abandond hospital in the war field!

    (this post was sponsored by writing my project’s documentation for over 35 continous non sleeping hours now!)

  2. God,Roba,your pictures brought me back so many memories.I’ve been away from these bare walls of JU for ten years now..but I can still feel the cold out there!!keep them coming!

  3. For some weird weird reason I was google searching images of Starbucks in Amman on google and I came across your blog…
    I should probably introduce myself.. Name (obvious) Fadi and I’ve lived in Toronto for 8 yrs.. I’m from amman originally and I just found ur blog quite interesting.. I’m a 4th yr planning and urban Design student at the Univeristy of Waterloo so I found soo many of ur artistic photos/project really cool.. But seriously u brought back so manny 3mmany memories..
