My best friend is currently in her senior year of the Architecture program at our college. =) She really likes it, though when she gets to talking about the particulars of her studio projects, I never really get what she's saying half the time, haha. It's always interesting to try following it though. Last time I talked to her, her class had to visit a local brewery to learn what is involved at such a place because her studio project this semester is to design an original brewery.
Our college sure knows how to prioritize its projects.
Since you started out in Architecture, do you enjoy drawing?
Oh, yes, special education definitely makes it easy for recent graduates to get a job. The field is so understaffed that they even take people who aren't fully certified yet, and just let them take night classes while they're teaching. I think the best part about it, though, is the people I've met. There are some amazing people working in special education, oh my goodness. I'm not working yet due to special circumstances, but I'm excited for when I do start in on the career. I studied and worked primarily with people who have multiple and comprehensive disabilities as opposed to sticking only to speech pathology, so I don't know too much about speech therapy (except for during IEP meetings where I spoke with speech therapists regarding some of my kids, I didn't really get too exposed to that avenue).
Congrats on having two novels that are almost publishable! -is envious-
Yeah, getting an agent and sending out query letters and getting the inevitable stack of rejections in the mail isn't going to be a fun time, I don't think. It's cool that you've kind of gone through the process a little bit already though. I feel like it's something that gets easier the more you do it.
Well a brewery would have to have special accommodations, hah. At least for storing those giant barrels or vats. And yeah, I like drawing. Back in school, I was drawing a lot (I took one drawing class multiple times because the professor was so cool, lol). But I've gotten out of practice with that in focusing on my writing. I still doodle a bit, but if I want a pic done for something, I usually ask my sister.
I think I'm going to end up jumping from project to project for the rest of the year, so no time to start something new. By the way, have you heard of NaNoWriMo? It might be more intimidating than this challenge, though. I'm gearing up for doing that again.
