I sure wish I had a real school of architecture accessible to me. The school
I graduated from in my locale is narrow in its focus and does not provide
useful education and training for one's self to actually work in a real
architectural firm, doing real work, for real people. The btic course
curriculum appears to do so. Wow!
So yes, by all means take more classes but note the focus on CAD is
production work cranking out CD's drafting for an architectural employer.
That's going to get you employed as a grunt because the CD's are what the
architect gets paid for and you will only learn about those types of
buildings the employer is able to get jobs for. If you want to learn about
other typologies you'll have to go work for some other architectural firm.
You spend half of your career begging for a job. Eventually you sit in a
corner cranking out the same sh!t day in and day out. Furthermore, CAD and
drafting are not what most architects actually do after they get their
license when they have to get into the business of architecture.
You see, architecture is now controlled by fascists hence all licensed
architects are fascists. The fascists determine who can work and who can not
work and they establish the terms. If you do not submit yourself to working
for them and making them money they will not allow you to get a license.
That means you will never actually be working as an architect and if you try
to do so the fascists can and have you criminally prosecuted as if you were
a criminal for drawing pictures. If you are not the architect you will
always be "staff" and in the larger firms even the architects become
So, the question is are you are prepared to become a fascist? If so you need
to learn what that really means in the real world, where architects and
others that are licensed become fascists. Learn about fascism and recognize
fascism for what it is and how fascism as currently used by those who
control what would otherwise be our freedoms and liberties to persue
happiness. For those who actually know the law and the princicples of what
was once a fine and honorable nation, America was founded on such laws and
principles but the Jewnited States and fascism is how the nation has become.
Learn about fascism and you'll know everything you need to know to make
decisions about a "career" because most choices are not yours at all. Your
choices will be dictated by the fascists and all you need to figure out is
if you want to submit to their will or not or do something else with your
Software development for example remains genuinely merit based and even
mid-level jobs pay as much or as well as the highest paid architects. What
about being free to seek your own success for example? I never even heard of
any architects designing something in their basement that they could sell to
somebody like a Google for $1.6 billion. Now, do you still want to be a
draftsman for fascists who might or might not like you enough to allow you
to get a license and actually become an architect?
Now, If I were smart enough to understand what is being said here -- and --
I did not intend to become a licensed fascist and though my life's work
could be accomplised as an employee grunt I would still teach myself to use
Revit and I would learn how to develop software using C# and the Microsoft
That way I could employ myself working as the grunt giving me a fall-back
position while I spent my time developing a nefarious plan to write software
and develop skills coding software applications that integrate with Revit
and other software used in construction processes building on my entire
knowledge base keeping it interesting allowing me to one day own, sell and
control my own product or service.
That's my life plan dude. Be good enough at something you own and control
which will turn the fascists into your customers and they will then pay you
and dependent on you. Which way do you want it to be? Fascism or Freedom?
