    To me in five to ten years

    In five to ten years, my dream as a future architect is to own a firm and work for myself. It’s sounds like a very simple goal in mind but, is a hardship to achieve that much to own company. 

     My ambitions towards owning an architecture firm comes from my family in which I as a person do not want to follow in their footsteps. As person who has 3 siblings that have all had ambitions to become a great many things in their lives but unfortunately did not succeed. Regardless of what plans my siblings and parents had, they were always met with the disappointment of either waiting too long to discover what they want or giving up in the process of pursuing their dreams.  

    Regardless of what occurred, they all eventually led to working for themselves. So, in retrospect from seeing my families' mistakes and hardships. I decided that whatever dream I had would be worth pursing and at the end of it I would work for myself in this field of business I chose. Personally, in five to ten years I see myself either beginning to or already in the process of owning a business. I’m aware that to own a firm takes a lot of experience in expertise of the field. I’m aware of all the total jobs and positions needed to build a firm. I am aware that in order to accomplish what you want won’t be just a walk in the park.  

      What I am trying convey in the blog is that I ‘m willing to fight for and execute ambitions. As a student who just finished his third year of architecture school and was doubted by his family of never even completing my first year, I’ve realized that I’d come a long way in life even though I still feel a little empty at times in completing anything in life. Truthfully, the concept of self-improvement is a self-explanatory but at times I have yet to understand that I have improved within all these years.  

    To my mind, I use to picture myself in the future like the character Andrew in the movie Whiplash, played by Miles Teller. A character striving to becoming one of the greatest musicians in life to become the next Charlie Parker. Ironically enough, I use to play Saxaphone like the great Charlie Parker and bass guitar. However, the movie whiplash is relatable in a way of when the story of Charlie Park was told by Andrew's teacher Fletcher. He was described a kid being laughed at after an embarrassing stage performance and uses that as a motivation to begin practicing on how truly great, he was.  “To never to be laughed at again”. I do believe that is it an absolute necessity to push ourselves in becoming what we want. As person striving for greatness, I understand that now.

About this Blog

Music is always or never thought of as having a relation to architecture. Even if it is, I utilize music as more of an drive to an inspiration to a work of architecture.
