Disclaimer: your childhood interest in Legos does not qualify you to be an architect. I had to learn this the hard way.
  1. Label all of your files "final" or "FINAL FINAL"
  2. Vicariously live through your friends' snapchats of going out on weekdays
  3. Become frenemies with the 24-hour Starbucks on campus
  4. Base your self-worth on the success of your projects
  5. Always respond to "how are you?" with "I'm so tired"
    When talking about sleep, it's appropriate to frequently use the idioms "few and far between" and "I'll believe it when I see it."
  6. Propose elaborate timelines in which you finish your work early and take the weekend off
    To date, there have been no documented cases of successful attempts.
  7. Dramatically drone on about how unfair your professor is being among your peers
    "Ugh, Professor _______ totally said that we weren't doing the axo at the 1:1 scale but he told Bridget that we do. Can't he just get it together already? I'm tired of having to guess what he's thinking."
  8. Accept that the architecture world is a cult
    What else explains everyone's weird obsession with name-dropping Mies Van Der Rohe and exclusively referring to things in terms of their spatial qualities?
  9. Revel in the moment when you finally finish that damn model and everything becomes worth it (or at least more tolerable)
