Career Path – Writing

Writing has always been in my interests. I love the way words can help me vividly imagine an image in my mind. As a hobby and interest, I would write short stories, a long paragraph of some things that caught my interest, jot down some notes so I won’t forget, or just simply writing down the feelings I’ve had on a particular day. I also have a huge interest in poem writing and I’ve actually written a few poems myself. Although I’m not a big fan of constantly reading books, I wouldn’t mind a thrilling novel. If I could, I would also like to follow a path of writing such as going into the publishing industry nd becoming an editor. Of course, if possible, I would like to be a writer myself.

Career Path – Architecture

I have always loved architecture! I am very determined to pursue in this career! I have and am currently taking the necessary courses in high school to achieve my goal. Many people have asked me this same question, “Interior or exterior?” The complete question would be: Do you want to do interior design or exterior design? To all the people who have asked, I told them I would like to do both interior and exterior design. Why? Well…the reason is simple! Designing both interior and the exterior of a building is like finishing a puzzle completely by yourself. If I decide to only design for the interior of a building then I would only finish 50% of the puzzle and the other 50% would be given to somebody else to finish. I don’t think that feels very accomplished at all. Of course, in the architect industry, many things must be considered. For example, the budget, the land, and the people involved. But if giving a project halfway to somebody else, the concept of my design may not be understand by someone who only knew how to decorate the exterior without the slightest idea of making the interior and exterior match. It is like having a Valentine themed interior while the exterior is decorated with Christmas holiday spirit.

Am I rambling?

My Post-Secondary Pathway – University of Waterloo

The last university that I would like to apply to is Waterloo University which is most famous for its arithmetic. Although the art programs in Waterloo are not as excellent as McGill or Ryerson, it is still a well-known university. Two of my cousins are currently attending Waterloo University. My first cousin, who is in his last year, has taken the Accounting and Finance path in Waterloo and has decided to become an accountant. If I were to apply to this university, I think I would follow in his steps and proceed in a career with math and calculation.

My Post-Secondary Pathway – McGill University

McGill University is another university famous for its architecture programs. I would also like to attempt to apply to this university also. Because McGill University is located in Quebec, Canada, knowing fluent French is also a good option if I wish to be accepted into McGill so I decided to take the French course in high school for all 4 years. Although, the people at McGill mainly speak English, it wouldn’t hurt to take the French course. The expectations for this university is also high. I know this because my friend’s sister did not get accepted into McGill even though she had a 85 average. McGill University might be a little bit harder for me to be accepted into compared to Ryerson University but I’m willing to, although it may sound cliché, give all my effort into the last 2 years that I have into my school work.

My Post-Secondary Pathway – Ryerson University

During high school, specifically during my grade 11 and grade 12, one of the universities that I would like to apply is Ryerson University because it is most famous for having good programs on architecture. Although the expectations to be accepted into this university is very high, I would still like to give myself a chance to go for Ryerson and I hope that Ryerson would give me that opportunity too. What I’m planning to do to achieve my goal is to draw on one page of my sketch book every day. Each day I would draw something that may be simple like a tree that I see nearby or my sleeping pillow or maybe even something abstract such as expressing myself visually. Why I do this is because when applying for Ryerson University, one of the requirements is to see artwork that I’ve drawn in the past.

Project Management 2010

The project management sections at the end of the course for Tiny eCAR Project has taught me many formatting methods to create a Specification. One method would be using a table, writing the functions of the car and then using the letter “S” if Rachel’s and my small car has that function, “O” for optional and “-” for does not have that function. Another method to make a Specification would to not use a table and write the functions of our car and have a sub-list of the programs that the function can do. With that, you would know whether our small electric car would have that function without the buyer having to choose whether he wants a function in the car or not since it would already have been set into the car. The Manufacturing Specifications is the section of the project where Rachel and I had to research on our materials. We then had to detail the materials with what it was capable of withstanding such as follows: the melting point of the our electric car, the opacity, the elasticity, the homogeneity, etc. The Manufacturing Specifications was somewhat hard since I knew nothing of the materials we were going to use to create our ideal car or how each of the materials were made or formed. The Project Management Circle has taught me that in order to make the ideal car a reality, a time schedule and plan must be created. Not only that, if the workers did not know their responsibilities to achieve the goal then confusion would begin and nothing would be accomplished. Knowing if the manufacturing process is doing well is also very important because if there are any setbacks then thinking of any way to get back on track would be needed since there would be a deadline to make our ideal car real.
