So, So Confused.

If you haven't seen any of the Yahoo! articles stating that architecture is the worst possible field to pursue, well, it is. Unemployment is almost 14%, despite the fact that us architects build your houses and stuff.

Despite these unnerving facts, I chose it anyway. I chose architecture despite every plea not to.

Anyway, according to US News, Architects hold the spot for 2nd best career in the creative services industry, and is #42 on the list of best jobs. Out of all the careers our there, I'd say 42 is a pretty good number, no?

For a while I believed that the architecture industry would improve in the near future because there are so many new development opportunities thanks to the rising population increase, and isn't Cornell building a complex over here soon? If I do end up pursuing architecture, I may be able to find a job over there but then again Cornell Arch kids will probably get priority... sigh.

But seriously, I don't get it. 14% unemployment, 42nd best job in the country?

Eh, oh well.
