What I liked
The hands-on experience of learning how to use design applications, such as Adobe Illustrator and SketchUp, was an immensely helpful experience for me. It also taught me a lot about my personal interests and my career journey and direction in life. I realized that I missed the buzz and fast-paced life of school and education, and made me realize as well that graduate school was a path I would more strongly consider. I made a rough plan of my life after my undergraduate years to work a job for a few years, then go back to grad school to earn a masters in urban planning or design, then return to working to really establish a more focused career base.
