New here!! (post #207115)

Hello everyone. My name is Jenny and am a student of architecture. I have just joined this site as I found many interesting threads here where I want to participate in the discussion. Hope I get to share and gain lots of knowledge.

Welcome to Breaktime (post #207115, reply #1 of 16)

As a student of architecture you have some serious shoes to fill.

There's so much to your trade that it won't be easy.

 

With that said, you can expect many of us in our trades that build to your ideas would probably highly recommend some practical experience.  Some replies even go more than simple recommendations.

However, the gift I hope you have is that which enables you to "see" something b/4 it is built.  Some architects have it and others don't.  With that gift and a boatload of hard work you should get your license and be employable.

If you can add to that the knowledge that takes your lofty ideas and runs them through the "can it be done" mill, you'll have your own practice some day and be very successful.

I've had the pleasure of working with some very talented architects and the chore of working with the others.  Believe me, one produces brilliant applicable drawings that excite both the builder and the client.  The others seem to bring a "war" plan.

Best of luck.

Here's hoping you're not easily offended/embarrassed.  There's a lot of fartin' and butt-scratchin' that goes on around here.

I kinda wonder if it isn't a student's game or even a test for English class in China -- Make a series of posts to a forum and see if they "pass".

But "her" syntax and grammar are better than most of the regulars here, though a little stilted.  I'd give her a pass, up until the second post.

Pretty much agree with your assessment.......... (post #207115, reply #12 of 16)

and think much the same with the other "newby".

Sneaky little bastards, and to use a woman................

no class.

 

Initially, great opportunity to meet someone wanting to learn more.

and the post to oneself..............I'd be more apt to blame the software or the confusing reply to this........reply to original............

but no reply to a question and the non usual wording............

cripes, brownbagg was easier to decypher.

Blame the Cultural (post #207115, reply #13 of 16)

Blame the Cultural Revolution.  There was centuries of culture and tradition that was pretty much exterminated in one generation by Mao.  Of course, that's actually pretty common in China's history.  Centuries of exploration undone by one emperor, centuries of dog ownership undone by one leader too.

 

OK everyone, anyone does an "introduction" post... shoot them.

Really.  This is a Q&A forum, not a Chatty Cathy social site.  If anyone "Introduces" themself, they obviously don't know what this forum is about.

YAY!  I love WYSISYG editing!  And Spellcheck!
