Mrs. "Architect"

One of my first site visits.
"Mrs. Architect (In Training)" contains the ramblings with my life being an Architectural Designer and my goal to becoming an Architect.  I studied Architecture in a 5 1/2 year Masters Degree program and graduated in 2008 with Best Thesis.  After graduating, I entered an Internship Development Program for Architecture and my firm helped me get the required hours.   The best way I can describe my job is: I'm a full-time employee who can do the same thing a registered Architect can; I just am a little inexperienced without my license.  In order to get to a "licensed" status, I have to complete 5600 hours for the I.D.P.  After I meet the requirements, I have to take seven exams for the Architect Registration Exam.
