Today is Wednesday. I don’t have much to talk about today.
I guess I can talk about the research journal we had to read for our solid works class. In the most concise way possible, the article was about how to recognize difficult to manufacture drilled holes in CAD programming. It was difficult to read but definitely not as bad as I thought it was going to be.
Today was chill 👍🏾
Today, I thought I’d use this time to talk about all of my interests in academia and my paths for the future.
I’ve wanted to study architecture since middle school in hopes of becoming an architect. In my junior and senior year of high school, I was in a CAD Architecture program in my county’s Career and Technology Center, where I spent half my school day working on Architecture projects and learning CAD architecture programs such as Revit, AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, and Google Sketchup. While in the program I participated in national architecture programs and worked towards getting certification in Autodesk Revit. But also within the program, other interests began to emerge that seemed to have the potential to compliment my design work: interests such as typography, graphic design, space architecture, Virtual Reality, and my love of Disney. In my CAD program, I would find ways to incorporate these interests into my projects such as designing an interplanetary habitat as a project theme or dreaming up a new Disney attraction. This solidified my dream of becoming an architect and studying architecture and design in higher education. And this lands me where I am now. After finishing up my first year of college my interests with the architecture discipline have grown to include biomimetics, interaction design, and Human-Computer Interaction.
I plan to attend graduate school directly following obtaining my bachelor’s degree and then going to get my Ph.D. I hope to get a Masters in architecture and a Ph.D. in Media Arts and Sciences at the MIT Media Lab. Why the MIT Media Lab you may ask. Well… the MIT Media Lab works on projects that intersect the fields of biology, design, computer science, architecture, and engineering, all fields that I love and have high interests in.
My dreams and goals for the future are to establish and a multi-faceted design firm, work at NASA as a Space Architect, or Disney Imagineering as a Creative Design Executive to name a few of my goals and dreams.
