What do you really learn?

So, the first day, and certainly all the days, will be about the changes that have happened in this transitional year.

As many of you know, I am looking back on the past through many avenues, from the book that I am releasing at the end of this month to the fact that Friday would be five years since the beginning of the entire journey.

It seems that old habits die hard too. For example, I was trying to find out how to host my wordpress site effectively and I was considering moving it to wordpress.org, but I was unable to do so effectively. As a result, I asked for my money back and I will consider doing it again in the future. In the meantime, my website is not going anywhere until I have sufficient traffic to do it again. It will happen, but this seems too soon.

I also have only one more class until the end of another tough year of school that is suddenly becoming considerably less hard… This is why.

I started out this year with my least favorite semester and I survived. I am in the architecture school, but I don’t actually like to make buildings. I am a visionary, an idealist, but I am not technical and all that with buildings. That is why I am going into urban planning and real estate development. I will have the architects working with me and for me.

In other news, I am done with those long hours of studio classes. Studio is absolute torture and does not really teach you much. It is just a ton of wasted time and effort in my opinion. That is the primary reason I am done with them, and it helps that it is no longer required haha.

I like spending time with a lot of things. In my course to try and move my website, I learned a lot about wordpress as a platform that could prove useful in the future. I spent a ton of time working on books that have not sold much yet, but my books are giving me an edge on applying for jobs. I get knowledge out of things that are not always meant to be.

It may be the end of my time this year, but there is still learning to do. I hope that all of you learn something new every day, even if it does cost you a little money in the end. It is worth it to learn about a skill that might serve you well in the future. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
