In November, I’ll be graduating with a Master of Architecture Degree from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
I don’t know what I want to do with myself yet.. All I’m certain of is that I do not want to be stuck in a boring 9-to-5.
I think too much
I think I’m of ‘the race that knows Joseph’ – Lucy Maud Montgomery
3 years later, and I’ve never been stuck in a boring 9-to-5 🙂
I still think too much
I’ve still not decided what to do with myself – I’ve come to accept that that’s just who I am. I went off and got another Masters’ Degree from University of Oxford – mostly for the intellectual company, also for when I go down the PhD road. I loved my dissertation. Also, I’m back in Ghana for a year (I think) and I’ve started a social architecture enterprise -> sociarchi.com
I’ve been running sociarchi with my pal Emmanuel for since September 2015. It’s been really hard work… more sleepless nights than I like, but we’re doing the kind of stuff we’ve always wanted to do, so that’s great. That, and all the other side gigs and projects I’m doing because I can’t mind my own business.
I still think way too much. Any ideas on how to silence the inner voices for an hour perhaps? > lol let me know.
5 years since my last update – wow. I’m currently doing a PhD at SOAS, University of London in Politics and International Studies. My research is broadly about the Politics of Architecture in Africa, and specifically about schools.
I’m still running sociarchi, as well as Accra Archive – a digital Ghanaian architectural archive project, and adansisem – an architecture collective that documents and showcases stories of Ghanaian architecture. Still on the multiple projects thing – because there’s so much to do! – though I’m better at not taking on more than I can handle these days (I think)
I still think way too much, but that’s okay with me.
