Architecture Fun

If you’re architecture students you’ve probably experienced:

  • The taste of wood glue.
  • Changes in your vocabulary: homework to project, ball to sphere, etc.
  • You don’t understand how somebody can spend less than $20 at the supplies store.
  • You hate people telling you “go to sleep” or “do you still have a lot of work?”.
  • Your friends and you don’t have the same concept of work: “oh, well do it right before class”.
  • You’ve slept more than 20 straight hours on weekends.
  • You can easily discuss with authority the effects of caffeine on different drinks.
  • No matter the effort you put in a project, somebody will always say ?why don?t you add this? or ?why don?t you change this here?” or ?i think that?but?yeah, its ok”.
  • You?ve heard all your iPod songs in a week.
  • You aren?t seen in public without bags under your eyes.
  • Whenever you get invited somewhere, it is followed by ?or do you have a lot of homework?”.
  • You?ll dance YMCA with a choreography without a drop of alcohol in your system.
  • You write down a quick message with rapidographs, lead holders, markers and ink.
  • You constantly make up excuses for courses that are not design related why you didn?t do your work.
  • You have more pictures of landscapes and places than of people.
  • Your worst nightmare consists of not finishing a project.
  • Someone once called you ?lazy” and you wanted them murdered.
  • You can live without human contact, sunlight, food, but if your plotter?s ink runs out? chaos!!!
  • When somebody lends you a Bic pen you look down at it.
  • You don?t care about sports cars, your favorite car is the one where you can put in your model and your huge computer.
  • You design spectacular things without the idea of the cost.
  • You have the modern mark: a blister in your palm?s hand for the constant use of your mouse.
  • Everybody tells you how they admire your work, ?but there is no money for it”.
  • You?ve gained the ability to sleep in whatever surface: pencils, keyboards, backpacks, your studio mates, food, etc.
  • You always have the idea that your project will always be recognized.
  • When you finally have free time to go out you keep thinking ?who was the idiot that designed the restaurant?s bathroom?”, ?who designed this menu?” or ?who designed this (chair, table, lighting, fork, etc)”.
  • You’ve been at many sunrises, yet you’ve never seen one.
  • You need to read all this in here to realize how weird your life is.
