Today is the last day of the class and the final week of fall classes. This class seemed to fly by much faster than the others. I think enjoyed all of classes this semester, however this one surprised me on the very first day. I honestly had no idea what it was going to be about, it just fit my schedule. When Royal explained what the course that lay ahead of us, I was intrigued. I thought “this will be great experience for me.”
I chose to do something about architecture because I don’t really know anything about it, and I saw this as an opportunity to learn about something that affects me every day of my life. It’s a pretty big disappointment that I couldn’t find any architects that could make time for me. I lost count of how many meetings I scheduled with how many architects, only to have them disappear at the last moment. I was really looking forward to learning and writing about something new. Not only anew topic, but a new format of writing.
I have to say this fruitless pursuit did dampen my enthusiasm. I pushed ahead anyways and talked about my own curiosities and thoughts on architecture, it’s future, and how that relates to Milwaukee. I don’t expect anyone to find much inspiration in the ignorant ramblings of a student, but who knows maybe someone will get an idea from it. regardless, I certainly enjoyed the curriculum and soft-spoken wisdom of Royal. I am thankful for the time he gave us and the and the new acquaintance.
