Of course, I don't do anything else now either - that I did a lot of in my first 2-3 years of college. Basically, I can't even remember huge sections of that time in my life... the memories aren't even there for the most part - or they are but I'm not sure if I was hallucinating them or if they really happened. I did manage to keep my scholarship until the 3rd year - but by that time it had really caught up with me. upsidedwnsmiley.gif

I would highly recommend trying to stick with your plan - it's very, very easy to get away from you. Of course, if all you're doing is drinking - then you'll probably be mostly recovered by the time you have to go to class. If you're doing other things and you're still seeing little rainbow helix strands of light coming from the professor's mouth during a lecture the next morning... things are less likely to go well. rolleyes.gif

Yah, my mom is constantly telling me how important it is that I need to do well in college. It's basically the beginning of my career now that I have all of the boring pre-req stuff done. Got that stuff out of way at the community college by doing Running Start, Washington's States name for the dual credit program. So I am really looking forward to the actual architecture and civil engineering classes this fall.

Yeah, that's actually what I started out as when I entered college (architectural engineering major)... but it basically ended after I had a discussion with the president of the college of architecture. I wanted to be an architect from age 8 until 2 days into my freshman year of college...

ME: "So be honest with me... how long from the time I graduate and start as a draftsman/engineer with a firm until I can be 'The Fountainhead'?"
HIM: "If you're really, really lucky and determined... 10 years. If not, probably more like 15-20 years."
ME: "Thanks for that."
HIM: "So we'll see you in a year or two after your cores are taken care of?"
ME: "Hell no. I'm going straight to the registrar and changing my major to Fine Arts!"
HIM: "..."

Lol yah... everyone is trying to tell me to change my major to Civil Engineering but architecture is what I've wanted to do since I was 10. We all have to start somewhere too. A friend of the family has a friend that works as a head hunter specifically for people in the field of architecture and she said she would gladly help me out after I finish college. I also decided to dual major in Civil Engineering to please my family and make myself more marketable as well. I just hope I can find a job after college!

I'm sure you'll do just fine. My biggest issue was that I really never wanted to deal with the engineering side of things to begin with... just the design side. I could care less what tensile strength of braided cable is required for a suspension staircase, or how deep my pilings need to be for the wraparound decking... I just want to design the house that has them - and have one of the 'grunts' do the structural/foundational calculations.

Of course, I probably could have gotten there sooner than now - but in some ways I'm glad. CAD was only just becoming available/accepted (remember this was 1990) and much of the calculation work was still lookup tables and slide-rules so in many ways I dodged a bullet. Now I can simply do the design work in my spare time on my computer (at least if my programming work will ever let me do anything else) - and then hire YOU in a few years to figure out how you make that design survive an earthquake while bolted into the side of a cliff. biggrin.gif

Considering the fact that my requirements for just the lot I want to put my dream house on will run me the better part of $1M - and the house will likely cost $400-500K on top of that... I've got a few more years to get things finalized for sure. biggrin.gif Unless I hit the lottery... but that's pretty unlikely since I don't buy tickets!

Oh my, I guess were on the same boat biggrin.gif But dual major is way too much for me though, I'll be dealing with Civil Engineering for the sake of sanity tongue.gif

Sweet! My first job! lol, but in all seriousness, I love the CAD programs we have used in the few classes I have taken in high school. They were Chief Architect (super easy to use), and Rhino 4.0. However, my favorite all-around design program that I LOVE to use is Cinema 4D. You can do almost ANYTHING in that program! When I did my job shadow, the guy was using autoCAD, basically like Rhino and Solidworks but it's all command line stuff (there are buttons and stuff but he was just simply using the command line for everything). With Cinema 4D, it is is so simple to get started and easy to follow along. I've been meaning to post some of the work I've done with Cinema 4D. I'm really proud of it.

Exactly like that but not as thick. I will be using the double density SMD lights and I will try to keep it at about 3/4in thick. It will go mirror acrylic > etched acrylic > scuffed clear acrylic > 5MM clear acrylic with channel cut into it > 2MM clear acrylic > white acrylic with channel cut out of it. Hopefully it will work... should look pretty wicked with some Mayhems Gigabyte Orange flowing through it!

Good luck! I'm kind of okay with dual major because I have almost two years of college done and I graduate high school in a week!

Sorry for a lot of off-topic conversation guys! I don't have anything to take pictures of at the moment but I promise you, this log will go quick unlike the MurderMac log that dragged on for a year lol.

pre-reqs done.... dual major. Well this all sounds very familiar. lol.

Do well your first year, get an internship or two, then enjoy the rest of your school experience.
