this was sent to me by a friend...
found it interesting...
thought I should share it with you...


...the alarm clock tells you when to go to sleep.'re not ashamed of drooling in class anymore, especially in the Structures lecture. CELEBRATE space and OBSERVE your birthday. and cokes are tools, not treats.

...people get nauseous just by smelling your caffeine breath. think it's possible to CREATE space.'ve slept more than 20 hours non-stop in a single weekend. fight with inanimate objects.

... you've fallen asleep in the washroom.'re brother or sister thinks he or she is an only child.'ve listened to all your cds in! less than 48 hours.'re not seen in public. lose your house keys for a week and you don't even notice.'ve brushed your teeth and washed your hair in the school's washroom.'ve discovered the benefits of having none or very short hair.....or better still, you¹ve started to appreciate inheriting baldness.'ve used an entire role of film to photograph the sidewalk. know the exact time the vending machines are refilled. always carry your deodorant. become excellent at recycling when making models.

...when you try to communicate, you make a continuous and monotonous whine.

...when someone offers you a Bic pen, you feel offended. take notes and messages with a rapidograph and color markers. combine breakfast, lunch and dinner into one single meal. see holidays only as extra sleeping time.'ve got more photographs of buildings than of actual people.'ve taken your girlfriend (boyfriend) on a date to a construction site.'ve realized that French curves are not that exciting can live without human contact, food or daylight, but if you can't print. it's chaos.

... when you're being shown pictures of a trip, you ask what the human scale is. can use Photoshop, Illustrator and make a web page, but you don't know how to use Excel.

...You refer to great architects (dead or alive) by their first name, as if you knew them. (Frank, Mies, Norman...)'ve got 50 dollars worth of magazines that you haven't read yet.
