When I posted on 2003/09/12 (I am referencing myself, is this ridiculous or what?) I was wondering about whether I should go to grad school for architecture. I think when I first started blogging, I was dealing with the same issue, although, I was unemployed at the time. My life would be so different had I taken that path — for better or for worse. Graduate study of architecture is not as glamorous as it sounds. You study for 3 years, then you intern for 3 more and take your licensing exam to make an average of $55,000 a year. Ouch. That’s like going to med school so you can make okay money. I’ll be 31 when I get my license if I start school next year. At some point, I will be a 30-year-old intern. Ugh. I want to be a great architect, not just a good one. I’ll never know until I try but when will I do this? Can I even afford to do it? When I started college as a journalism major, I never cared about the money. I did it for the love an the money followed. Now, I’m not sure that I can be so naive, foolish or brave.
