…you consider leaving at midnight “clocking out early.”

…you call the architecture building your home, but have vague memories of a place where you shower.

…you feel guilty about the time you waste when glue is drying.

…you’re cautious about throwing trash away, knowing it might be someone’s project.

…you have more pictures of buildings than of people.

…you’re unsure on whether the rest of campus really exists.

…your grocery list is written on a scrap piece of foam core.

…your car was cheaper than the supplies you’ve bought this year.

…you’ve ever waited for the supply store to open so you can finish before 9AM.

…you can remember which X-Acto knife scar corresponds to which model.

…your friends keep telling you about something called “sleep.”

…you use sunrise to gauge how much time you have left to finish your work.

…when you fall asleep in class, you dream about working.

…you’ve ever used bass wood sticks as chopsticks.

…you can recite the golden ratio to ten digits.

…you take cardboard from the dumpsters.

…you plan on building your Halloween costume.

…you plan on making several study models before actually constructing your costume.

…you keep a scale with you “just in case you need it.”
