What if I took another path 如果我走了另一个路径 ...

When I was young (well, in high school), I have always 
wanted to be an Architecture ...
I started my first year University in Architectural school,
I got all grade "B"s in my design classes
 while all other classes I completed easily with "A"s ...

At the end of the first year, 
I asked the "Acrh 102" lecturer, 
why didn't I do well in the design classes ...
the answer was quite simple, 

" I may not be artistically inclined" ...

I was disappointed at myself and 
thought if I can't be a great Architect, 
I might as well quit early and 
do something else ...

So, I changed my discipline and finished 
with an Industrial engineering and management degree.

The rest is history ...

The thought of the fact that I could have been 
an Architect or perhaps somethings else,
maybe a Chef or a Photographer ...
have haunted me in the past many years ...

For what if I have taken another path in my life, 
what would I be today ...

Well I am not sure what would be different..
What I do know is that you are amazingly gifted in capturing moments.
I like this one especially.

Thoughtful post.

Guess if I'd taken a different path I may not be living in Malaysia doing what I love most - teaching English. I may be stuck in England!

I believe that we add skills. The architecture requires some, but also industrial design as well as the Career Manager. I think your picture may aggregate their diverse talents. We should never get in mind a review about us, as if something crucial, a final verdict, and upload as a weight. The construction process is continuous.
