Thread: Hello from West Seattle -

  1. #1

    Hello from West Seattle -

    Just found the site and forums - looks great. I'm getting ready to go back to graduate school - pursuing urban design (M.Arch and MUP) at the University of Washington...

    If anyone has advice, it would be welcome!

    What would you like advice on? I'd recommend that you don't tuck your pants into your socks. Always look both ways before crossing the street, and don't pick fights with el Guapo

    Welcome

    Welcome. I considered going to school in Seattle -- then we moved away from Washington state. My advice: Enjoy the forums.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Welcome. Since you ask for advice...

    Spend most of your time in teh Friday Afternoon Club. Spend the rest drinking good beer. Grad school will be over in no time.

    Welcome from central New York State - home of the most dysfunctional state legislature in the U.S. of A.

    Advice: As soon as you get your first FT job after finishing your graduate degree, start saving for retirement.

    Greetings friend. My advice --- live in a cardboard box during graduate school if it will help you avoid student loans.

    Greetings from the hilly part of southern Indiana. I was hoping to spend 2-3 years here then head out your way -- that was 15 years ago :-C

    Good luck with your studies and your future profesional undertakings. And, enjoy Cyburbia!
