August 2015 Photographs

Are you having trouble getting started or making progress on the Architect Exam?!?? Is the self-guided nature of the ARE not working for you?

Join our virtual study group. The ARE Boot Camp has a syllabus, a schedule with deadlines, people to study with and hold you accountable. The program is organized similar to a "design studio", to help you study for the Architect Exam.

We recently started accepting applications for sessions beginning in May and June 2017  for both ARE 4.0 and 5.0.  It's time to get started with making progress on the Architect Registration Exam. 

Here’s my photos.

All of these pictures came from my Instagram feed: YoungArchitxPDX Feel free to add me.

Labrador in a vet clinic

2 minutes after I took this picture, Molly’s day fell apart. She hates the vet more then anything and had to be knocked out so they could work on this weird bump on her leg. A very upset dog + $200 later = everything will be fine.
