Do I have to be extremely good at drawing to be an architect?

archatlas:

Not really, you have to be good at coming up with ideas or innovative solutions to old problems. Nowadays there are many ways you can communicate your ideas using technology that not necessarily require an exceptional talent at drawing.

To my future husband

The first thing you need to know is, never underestimate what you mean to me. By the time you have the occasion to read this, I will have invested a significant portion of my life thinking, planning, anticipating, and, yes, dreaming about our life together. Not just the beginning, the wedding day, but each day until death do we part. Each moment matters - promise you will not forget that. 


By the time we marry, we will probably have had a few laughs about who we thought we would wed at ages thirteen, fourteen, fifteen… But there is always the possibility that we will not be laughing about it. What if I do end up marrying the person I’m thinking about right at this moment, in 2009? You know, I think I would laugh. It is sort of amusing. However, if I am dead wrong, and “current crush” never becomes “future husband,” I’ll be happy to accept that. I will hold out for someone who knows what love means.

What does love mean to you? I’ve learned that love is commitment to the point of sacrifice. Would you sacrifice for me the things I would sacrifice for you? If love is a choice rather than a feeling, will you love me when I fail to deserve it? Can I do the same for you? 

One of my deepest hopes is having children together. Sometimes, when I see little ones walking down the street with their mums and dads, I wonder what ours will look like. In my blue wallet, I keep a list of names written on a piece of paper. I’m excited about someday having the opportunity to explain what each of them means to me, and finally choosing the perfect combination. 

Remember, though, that even if we end up without little sprouts or a picket fence or a rose garden, your love will still mean more than the world to me, and I hope mine will mean the same to you. The most beautiful gift I can think of would be the affection of someone who waited for me. I promise I will wait for you so that we will never live in the shadow of trying to forget exes to whom we gave everything. 

Take God-given opportunities – you never know which one will bring us together. You have my faith and trust. 

I love you,

Your future wife (Alliana)

Colored my hair blonde but it didn’t worket out for my hair. But fortunately, I love how it turned like.

“Because sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up personally at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationary, your fingers touch the paper, your saliva seals the envelope, your scent graces the paper. Something tangible from your world travels through machines and hands, and deposits itself in another’s mailbox; their world. Your letter is then carried inside as an invited guest. The paper that was sitting on your desk, now sits on another’s. The recipient handles the paper that you handled. Letters create a connection that modern and impersonal forms of communication will never replace.”

"And that’s why I have to go back
to so many places
there to find myself
and constantly examine myself
with no witness but the moon
and then whistle with joy,
ambling over rocks and clods of earth,
with no task but to live,
with no family but the road."
