THINGS YOU DO AS AN ARCHITECTURE STUDENT
Disclaimer: your childhood interest in Legos does not qualify you to be an architect. I had to learn this the hard way.
- •Label all of your files "final" or "FINAL FINAL"
- •Vicariously live through your friends' snapchats of going out on weekdays
- •Become frenemies with the 24-hour Starbucks on campus
- •Base your self-worth on the success of your projects
- •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."
- •Propose elaborate timelines in which you finish your work early and take the weekend offTo date, there have been no documented cases of successful attempts.
- •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."
- •Accept that the architecture world is a cultWhat else explains everyone's weird obsession with name-dropping Mies Van Der Rohe and exclusively referring to things in terms of their spatial qualities?
- •Revel in the moment when you finally finish that damn model and everything becomes worth it (or at least more tolerable)
