    You Know You’re An Architecture Student When…

    Your roommates say “good morning,” and you reply with “good night”

    Coffee is your favorite drink, even at midnight

    You are an expert at Photoshop, Illustrator and Rhinoceros, but don’t know how to use Microsoft Excel

    You spend more time in the studio, than you do in your own bed

    You only leave studio to buy supplies or eat

    Your parents have more of a social life than you

    You have to wait for coffee shops to open in the mornings

    You tell time by when other people leave studio

    Your roommate files a Missing Person report

    Your bed has collected a layer of dust on it

    You use words like “charrette”

    You have your kitchen pantry inside your desk

    You eat all three meals in studio

    You think days are 48 hours long

    You ask Santa Claus for a sleeping bag for Christmas

    All the Christmas gifts you give are wrapped in trace paper

    You start paying rent for your desk space in studio

    You consider using broccoli for your models

    You say, “It’s only midnight I have plenty of time left” 

    You start wearing all black

    You confuse sunrise with sunset

    Your friends favorite brand names are UGG, NorthFace and Michael Kors.. But yours are Staedtler, Pentel and Macrons

    A break is considered moving your car so you don’t get a ticket if you parked in the staff lot

    You use architecture tools to eat


    • Fantastic collection! Makes me laugh to think about them all now.

      That's why I switched from Maya and Illustrator to Revit in my thesis year - no more all nighters after that
