Now reading up on your latest change did give me a small heart attack. I'm an architect...so this was sort of a blow when I was thinking we could collaborate on a project overseas. NOT KIDDING! However what you do in life is upto you and there's something I always advice people on doing.

If you don't love what you're doing quit while you're at it and find something that you do love.

If the architecture programme reduced you to your knees - then there were two possible outcomes;
1| You would take this as a challenge and move forward
2| You'd move onto something more erm comprehensible

As a word of caution, design is very subjective. 10 people might like it while a 1000 more will diss it while the same could apply inversely. You'd need to defend your self in the event of the latter and you'll need to keep yourself in check in the former - I've seen people spiral out of control dealing with their ego's out of praise smile.gif

Whatever you do mate, keep moving forward! biggrin.gif and if you'd need any help let the Brotherhood know since you now have 80~ bro's and sisters to share your course of action smile.gif

Cheers,

From Arch to computers! LOL it sounds like my history with college. I took Architecture my freshmen year, then decided to switch to art, to get into electronic media, and then I started taking computer science classes on the side because I like programming more (not enough time left for a minor though...). I don't design electronics, but I mainly do coding and architecture... the software kind.

For me Architecture was not so confusing and I really liked the theory for the most part. (even though I still do not know why we had to watch Battleship Potemkin) It's those drawing classes that were bothersome. Not so much that I didn't have design ideas, but the workload was heavy. We didn't use CAD freshmen year so we did all technical drawings with a pencil and pen and making one mistake makes you want to curse at the top of your lungs. I'm not super old- CAD was very much available in my high school but seeing my college class not use it felt like a step backwards. Good luck to you in getting back on track with school!

Anything with copper....must be done proper.
So I'm watching now....just to see how.
I know I'm late....but it's going to be great.
It will slow down with school....but that is still cool.
Rub a dub dub...you know that I'm subbed.

I'll stop now. But only for now.....

1. I love everything computers, building, tinkering, benching, everything and anything.
2. Architecture classes are making me cry myself to sleep due to the ambiguity and abstractness of the instructions or lack thereof, something I guess is verrrrrrry frequent in the architecture program.
3. Since I will be going from two majors to one, I will be done in two years assuming no major set backs (failing classes, life issues, etc.) since I did running start (dual credit program in high school).

I'm looking forward to this change and will be meeting with my new advisor on Thursday to discuss the transition and what classes I should take this fall. Who knows, in 5-10 years, I'll be designing Intel's latest Z series chipset or something wink.gif I can dream lol.

As someone with experience in the Comp Eng program at WSU you have chosen one of the best programs WSU has to offer. The instructors and professors have real world experience designing and developing systems that are used all over the world. I miss living down there, had I not moved back to Central Washington a couple years ago I would still be in Pullman. I love it down there. Be prepared to work your tail off if you want to be done in 2 years...just saying.

That would have been really great to collaborate on projects! I really thought architecture was the career for me but I guess I just don't have the creativeness or abstract thinking that is required to really excel in this major. Plus, you have to "certify" into the program and it is based ONLY on grades, and the cut off is a 3.5 GPA. THREE POINT FIVE GPA. That's ridiculous... safe to say I would have to get above a 4.0 this semester to be able to certify into the program which isn't going to happen. Oh well.

Yah, I took the drawing class last semester, not too bad because I can draw well enough. I wish we would have jumped right into CAD freshman year because then I could have REALLY excelled but nope, they feel drawing is more important than CAD which in a way makes sense, but 99% of it is on computers now they tell us. Plus, it isn't CAD anymore, it's BIM. I tried out the program we were going to use, it's called Revit by Autodesk and it is amazing, hands down one of the easiest programs I have had the pleasure of using, almost as easy as Chief Architect, another personal favorite BIM program. Revit has huge solidworks integration and I love it. Will still dabble with it in my free time along with Cinema 4D, Adobe Creative Suite, and other 3D design programs.

That has to be the most creative sub I have ever received. I sure hope I can please! Lots of ideas floating around my brain.

This is great news to hear! Unfortunately, some of the classes I took this year and during Running Start don't count towards my major sooooooooo I am looking at three years to finish so on track with everyone else, which sucks frown.gif oh well, more time to enjoy the campus and everything it has to offer!

Double post because it is my build log biggrin.gif got a nice picture of my inspiration for this build:

imgp2328khy59.jpg

I do not own this picture, simply posting it because it is my inspiration.

The build is called CopperMod 2.0 and it can be found on the hardwareluxx forum (all German computer forum), great place by the way. I will be doing things a bit differently but this will serve as inspiration.

That is one great source of inspiration!
I've seen a lot of TJ07 builds on that site, but had to use Google Translate to understand what they were saying.tongue.gif

Yes this is a nice mod from our forum, but it is a tj11 wink.gif i think you can top this quality, because i saw some pictures of the worklog, where some of the bends are crapxD so good luck!!
