A retrospective: divers & sundry things I have learned in my first year of architecture school (some of which should have been covered by common sense):
Never work on an empty stomach.
Clean your triangle. Again.
There are such things as stupid questions, but that doesn't mean one should be afraid to ask them.
There's probably an expensive glue for that.
Words can be stretched over almost anything. Like cellophane.
Prioritize everything, because it will all take much more time than you think.
Look on both sides of everything you cut.
Only take a metaphor as far as it takes you.
Never describe a project as "interesting." Car wrecks can be interesting.
When in doubt, change your X-acto blade.
Bar codes are not your friends.
Do not watch DVDs in studio. Especially Schindler’s List.
You're never really finished.
Thank God every day for keeping the lead pointer lid shut.
