    Hello, I'm ABS

    Hello, fellow cyburbians, you can call me ABS. I'm from Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. I'm in second year of a four year Bachelor Of Environmental Planning at university and I'm 19. I'm also from the forums at www.skyscrapercity.com in the OzScrapers section.

    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Welcome, from the northshore of the Ohio, 609 miles south by southwest of biscuit, 183 nautical miles from JNA, where the clocks are the same as biscuit, but not the state capital.

    Good luck with your degree. Glad to see how popular we are down under

    Welcome ABS

    Bachelor Of Environmental Planning
    I finished my Bachelors in Planning ( four year course) around six years back.
    SO nice to have a B. Env. Plan person around in Cyburbia. But you are already a specialist!!

    Yep, I can present a different planning perspective. The course I'm doing at Griffith university is really good. It has alot of theory which obviously means I'll gain alot of understanding as I progress through the course.

    Welcome from the Washington DC area!
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Welcome from Chicago!

    We like Australians here!!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Hello and welcome ABS. I hope you stick around - there are a few Australian planners using Cyburbia - the more the merrier. DA Monkey is in Redcliffe and would be the closest to you. I am in Lake Macquarie, near Newcastle in NSW.

    Welcome ABS from across the ditch. Yup I'm a Kiwi. I've visited Brisbane a few times and liked the climate. I hope to come over again in September for the 9th Annual International Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design Association Conference (jeez what a mouthful!).
