I am a student of architecture in my 2nd year. I enjoy visiting this site occasionally just to read about the different things people have to say. But it seems like every time I come here I end up reading somebodys rant about how horrible being an architect really is. Low pay, lots of ass-kissing, no life outside of the office, the list goes on and on. Up until now I have remained optimistic about my future career and disregarded these comments as coming from people who are bitter and spiteful because of their own shortcomings in their professional lives. However I am now seeing these comments far too often to ignore any longer. The thing is, I really do have a love of architecture and design but I want to be able to raise a family and enjoy my life as well as my career. At this point in time I am not thinking at all of changing career paths but I am getting a little worried about what the future might hold. Can anyone out there tell me more about a career in architecture without going off the deep end of negativity? I'm pretty sure that there has got to architects out there who love what they do and make a good living at it.
