That’s How We Do.

I just spent the last few hours of 2008 and first few of 2009 with hundreds of architecture students from all parts of the nation—in one grand ballroom in Denver. Of course, we had to showcase our creativity through the “recycle” theme, so girls came in thoughtfully designed plastic/paper dresses while guys…just wore dad’s ugly sweater (or nothing at all) with the conference slacks from earlier today.

In case you were wondering what Midwesterners dance to, they still crank dat Soulja Boy, point to windows and walls, and hip thrust to Michael Jackson—but with grapevine dancing in between to oldies like R-E-S-P-E-C-T! Find out what it means to me…

Happy New Year from Denver!
