Beginning Spring 2021 Semester

Today’s Topics:

  • Schedule Mix-Ups
  • Large Course Load
  • What I’m looking Forward to Most

Schedule Mix-Ups

This semester is definitely one that is different from past semesters that I’ve had.

The type of classes that I’m taking has started to change dramatically and I am really getting into the bulk of studying architecture.

These courses are also starting to get to the more advanced level as well. In turn I will have to start working much harder and put even more hours into the work that I do.

With that said, my course schedule actually is not fully resolved yet.

Some of my course times have changed while others have not, reflecting in my course being in time conflict with one another.

Luckily we do not have school today, so I still have an extra day to settle everything to the way I’d like it to be.

Large Course Load

This semester I’ve decided to challenge myself even further.

Since I’ve been in college, I have not gotten a B as my grade once. So I’ve decided to do a course overload request so that I could take 20 credits this semester.

I will be having my studio course, an art course, a structures class, a landscape architecture course, a digital technology course, and an urban technology course.

This is a lot, but what makes it manageable is that all of these are interesting topics that I chose out of passion for that subject.

What I’m Most Looking Forward to

There are a lot of things I’m forward to about architecture in general. Ever since I started learning about architecture, I have not gone a day without thinking about it.

With all of the things I’m doing this semester, it truly is hard to pick just one.

As a general range that can be accomplished through all of my classes will be exploring and learning advanced techniques and processes in technology.

Wherever I end up after college, I plan for it to have a large use of various technological practices. So if I’m developing my skills now for those positions, I’ll be setting myself up well to pursue that kind of career.


Thanks for tuning into this week’s blog post. I hope you enjoyed it. As always, Dream Big!
