    Hi from Oklahoma (in transition to Texas)...

    Hello everyone,

    I currently work in Planning and Zoning in the private sector (zoning analysis). I'm currently in school right now working on my bachelor's degree to become a planner. I'm 31 I didn't finish college right out of high school (shame on me) but I look the field so much I want to make a career of it!

    Welcome from MN (soon to be IN)! This place is a great resource, esp. if you are a student. Just graduated, but it gave me a lot of great insights on issues from working professionals. When it is time to get a job, these is a great Career forum that can help a lot.

    Enjoy yourself and good luck!

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!

Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
