1. Spending most of your day only to search the right font

Most people expect us to create something perfect in our design. Of course, as an architect, we cannot deny their expectation. So, spending five or six hours is quite reasonable to search the right font for our next presentation.

2. Nothing is done even though you spend hours in the office or studio

The office or studio is like a black hole where times and lights are not exist. We even don’t know what makes nothing done though we had spent hours and feel tired at the end of the day.

3. Make travel itineraries to see buildings

Each time you have plan to go to new cities, you find yourself sitting on the desk making an itinerary what buildings you should see in the city, and calculate the itinerary very carefully so that you won’t miss any building.

4. Always feeling that you should have a coffee break, like right now

Most people don’t know that being an architect is hard, so we deserve a coffee break few times a day.
