Graduation Pt 2

Part 2: Architecture and Me.

When I first applied to architecture school at Texas A&M, I didn’t even consider it to be something I wanted to do. I wanted to do something else design related. But I had to pick a major and I never thought about what I actually wanted to major in. 

This has always been a thought in my subconscious as I completed my bachelors and started to apply for my masters. I had the chance to go into another design field, but I didn’t. Upon arriving here at Pratt, I felt as if I made a mistake, not because of the school, but because I didn’t listen to myself. I didn’t give myself time to figure out what I wanted.

Now, two years later, I still don’t know, but I have a second degree. Architecture and I have a love-hate relationship. There are so many aspects of the field I love and so many I could care less about. It is almost convenient that I am graduating into a time where the economy is low for the architecture industry because maybe I could figure out what I actually want to do. I love architecture, but she isn’t my # 1, she’s not who I think about when I go to sleep at night.

Maybe I’m not meant to do just one thing. I always wished I was like my friends, who already know what they like and what they want to do. But I realized that’s not my path. I think my entire life I’ll be searching for my niche that makes me feel alive, that makes me want to jump out of bed and start creating. I hope I find the thing that I love, or things.
