Throwback Thursday | Architecture Schools

In case you're wondering, I didn't go to Cornell but I did go to architecture school about 7 years ago and dropped out when I was in 2nd year of 5-year program as I didn't perform well in design subjects. More specifically, studio subjects; I can take other subjects like building construction, materials, etc but my design skill just getting worst from second semester onwards. Of course, now I know it's because I didn't work hard enough to stay in school although at that time I was just blaming others for my own mistakes. I wish I can blame myself being immature too but nope, it was all me.


Now that I'm working in electrical engineering company as part of administrative staffs, I get to see the paperworks; plans of building constructions and I'm not going to lie. I do miss architecture schools. I miss drawing lines with different weights. I miss the morning coffee first thing in the studio. I miss my drawing tools. Sigh. 


I don't know. I've been having these thoughts since I saw architectural magazine laying around the office few days ago. I need to do something about this or maybe I don't? It's been years but I wonder why I'm still having these thoughts. 


Or maybe it's because I've gone too long without going somewhere.

  1. oooo teringat kembali time kak pip study autocad, so kitorang kena masuk drawing lab, and serius dapat lecturer dari canada, dan sangat cerewet bila silap lukis garis (kena lukis engineering drawing secara manual dalam kelas tu) ... rasa nak nangis duduk dalam kelas dia 2 jam setiap minggu, rasa macam lambat sgt masa tu berjalan ... sigh ..

  3. Mungkin keinginan tu timbul sebab berkerja di tempat yang melibatkan bidang tu.. Why not cuba buat sesekali.. Mana tahu akan dapat sesuatu dari situ.. Kepuasan maybe..

  7. Biasanya bila kita dah hilang sesuatu baru terasa rindu. Masa study rasa macam tak best. Bila dah kerja, ramai yang rasa nak balik ke zaman belajar.
