A Call to Design

Taylor | future architect

It's probably true that I don't know the first thing about art and buildings. An old friend once told me, I know that is so cheesy, but this friend told me that it's not based on how much you know, but how much you want to know. And, right now, I want to know everything about buildings. When I grow up, I want to be an architect.

When I look at a house, I see everything. From the shape of the roof, to the type of plants featured in the front yard. I have a natural instinct to just analyze all the houses I pass. It's basically like having a third arm, it signifies that your different from others. A calling I don't have the strength, and don't want to ignore.

In school, I'm learning about formulas, specific calculations, dimensions. In IT, were given modules on electricity, simple machines, architecture. I feel this as an advantage to most jobs in the workforce. I am learning these things for a reason. We even do papers on information learned for our future jobs. Almost like a college for basics. I have learned the basics for architecture.

To conclude my endless list of reason, I thank you for this opportunity. Truly amazed by something to take off steam for my dad. To have my dream job, I have so many ideas for the future. Homes for the homeless, more workforce places, and new and improved homes that I designed. Like my reasons, the list is endless.
