    Hello from Southern California

    Hi everyone!

    I'm a 4th year undergrad at UC Irvine Economics major / Urban and Regional Planning minor. I'm really hoping to get into the Urban Planning program here. Just stumbled across this site and hope to pick up a few things that i can't learn in the classroom.

    Welcome from NW Ohio.

    Concerning your comment about hoping to ".....pick up a few things you can't learn in a classroom.....".....

    If you can get past the frills, there is a lot of good information floating around this site. But, you may not want to pass those frills up......if you know what I mean.

    Call it "icing".

    Glad you are with us.

    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.

    Welcome ECIrvine! Cyburbia could use more Californians.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Hello from the other SC.

    Hey!

    I'm attending the same school. But I am a 3rd year Environmenatal Analysis and Design. Maybe I'll have you for a class next quarter. This site is very helpful, enjoy.

    Welcome! There is a good bit of real world what its like to be a planner in the trenches life talked about here. Your smart to realize there is so much to planning that just can not be learned from a book.

    Good luck!
    "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!'"
