    Another Chicago potential planner!

    Hello Everyone,

    I just transfered from a Masters of Fine Arts program to the UIC MUPP program.
    Basically, I was sick of art, well, at least art in the academic sense. Plus, employment options when I graduate is a motivating force.

    It's time to put this brain to something tangible and concrete (pun intended, maybe?)

    I start in the the spring, looking forward to changing directions and diving head first into the world of planning.

    Cheers!

    Welcome from a fellow Chicagolander!!!
    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, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Must be something they put in the Chicagoland water (or beer) that produces all these planners...

    Welcome from the Hoosier State.

    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)

    I just finished in May
    Actually this is my first post- maybe I wasn't supposed to "introduce" myself on someone else's introduction thread, but I did anyway
