In what could clearly be billed as a Battle Royal, I present Architects vs. Hippies in a death cage match pitting two classic stereotypes. Who will win? Will there even be a winner?
There is no question in my mind that I made the right decision when I was 5 years old to become an architect. Despite having been at this for a while, some things you just have to discover for yourself.
Just as any self-respecting architect before embarking on a trip, I am doing some research. I am leaving for my trip to Spain in 18 days and in an effort to maximize my experience, I am studying up on where I am going.

Today I am participating in an exercise where you write your own obituary. I didn’t really want to do it but thought it would be interesting to see what I came up with – no rewrites or edits allowed, 15 minute time limit
