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 November and January for both ARE 4.0 and 5.0.  It's time to get started with making progress on the Architect Registration Exam. 

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

February 2nd, I fell on my arm and fractured my upper humorous. It wasnt very funny.

 

 

Michael Riscica's broken arm

This is what a broken arm looks like on the outside.

It was too high to cast, so they just velcroed it to my waist and gave me an icepack.

It was too high to cast, so they just velcroed it to my waist and gave me an icepack. I made this face for about 3 weeks.

This is where it broke. Hurts like hell. Not a happy guy.
