November 3, 2014

Stop Calling Me “The Intern”

November 16, 2011


I AM, the Intern…? It’s not a title that anyone likes having. Intern makes me sound like an unpaid coffee bitch. I mean seriously. I spent 5-6 years of sleepless nights in the battlefield that is called architecture school and when I come out the other end I get the title of intern? Talk about […]
