Flashback Friday: Residential Final

Whoa, flashback man! This week I’m flashing back to college…. It still makes me tired thinking about it! This was taken of my Residential final. We had to present our drawings and plans at an architectural firm… after getting VERY little sleep for weeks. AND, you can’t see it in the photo… but, we also had to build our luxury penthouse out of foam core for a model. I just smashed that model a month ago… it sort of felt good…

Yeah. See right there. Yes, my eyes are barely open…. But, this final was nothing compared to my last final in school. My classmates and I were in the CAD lab (this is the computer lab we worked in to draw our plans) 6 am – 10 pm for a straight week. We would always try and stay later, but those darn security guards would kick us out! I don’t know… I think I calculated my hours that week in the computer lab to about 85? Ouch. 😀 But, I loved what I learned. I miss playing with AutoCad, but I still get to play on Photoshop.

    I have never gone through this but my hubs did as a Civil Engineering major, so he can feel your pain. He looked about the same amount of tired when his final projected presented.
