:: My Urban Eyes ::All that I see, and then some.
I'm one class away from my Planning major, and you know what? I don't know if it's for me. All of my classes have been lecture, which doesn't help at all. Nothing practical. When I do get the chance to do something cool--a Powerpoint presentation on bus rapid transit, say (it is really cool!)--I light up, but the rest of class isn't fun.
That's not the main reason, though. The main reason is: I don't really like planning people, as a whole. They just... aren't cool. Now, there are exceptions, including every planning person reading this page. ^_^ But in my classes, I don't feel like I could find many friends. People come to class in business casual. They talk about things I could care less about. They seem stiff and boring and not fun.
I never wanted to work in a cubicle box office, with only other planners around me... and this cements the decision. Give me neighborhoods to revitalize! People to help! Japanese cities to study! I'll take that, instead. ^_^

If you can do planning, and you like it, then it is for you. If the industry isn't for you, find a revolutionary new approach. People who revolutionize industries get rich quick.Post a Comment
