To Greener Pastures, Perhaps?

Lest you all start to think I'm nothing but a hopeless, boy-crazed head case, let me share with you the present I got in the mail today: A shiny new, pretty pamphlet from the University of Maryland School of Architecture. No, I do not want to be an architect. Too many numbers, ugh. But...I may just want to be a historic preservationist, community/urban planner and do you sweet children know what the UMD School of Architecture offers Masters specialties in? Uh, huh. You guess correctly.

Until recently, the idea of a Masters Degree sounded like a far-off possibility. Something I would pursue "later" when I felt more "together."

Well, these days I'm feeling pretty together. And even more so, pretty much over the whole working in a cubicle trying to find things to take initiative on while I wait for my boss to return edits to me on things a week late thing.

I already missed the deadline for Fall '07, but there's no reason why I can't start networking and reading up on the program and getting myself to apply for '08. So...no promises that this will amount to anything. I realize afterall, that just several months ago I was talking seriously about journalism school, but it is something I am thinking about more seriously than ever.

Any UMD School of Architecture students or alums out there? I'd love to hear what your thoughts on the program are.

Go, Kate, go! If you go back to school, does this mean we can go frat parties again without looking creepy and kind of desperate?

Urban planning would be cool. And you know, as far as architecture, as a kid I entertained the fantasy of becoming an architect, but I gradually talked myself out of it as I grew older because I hate math. And since then architects have told me on a few occasions, "math? We let the engineers do that!" So follow your dreams!

That sounds really neat. I actually considered doing something like that myself, but then decided against it. It sounds like a cool career choice. :)
