So it’s been a while. Good news – I graduated! The last month of school was basically one big blur; it felt like one day that lasted 720 hours. I was actually tired of being tired, which is a weird feeling. But I’m really proud of all the work I did and I’ll remember this spring forever just because I learned so much about my own capabilities, dedication, and values. I got frustrated, angry, exhausted, upset, relieved, ecstatic, flabbergasted, and everything in between. This M.Arch Program is very demanding, but if I had to do it again, I would. You know how people say, “Those were the days”, well I knew that these were the days when they were happening. This year was really a fantastic experience.
To anyone who might be considering the M.Arch program at Wentworth, I fully encourage you to pursue this if it’s truly your interest and passion; the creative exploration you will undergo far outweighs the stress. I hope you pour all your energy, focus, ideas, and heart into your thesis and then gather up more of all that to go hang out in the city with everyone else who’s going through it too because that’s really the best part.
Of course I’ve included some images of my final presentation of Chernobyl’s potential Ecological Research Center. Oh by the way, we had to make books of our theses – voila!
