Johnathan Started teaching me REVIT which is really cool, honestly.  Didn’t know it could do some of the things he taught me.  I know my way around REVIT a little, but it’s cool that he’s taken the time to try and show me more.

This week we had a meeting or two revolving around more aspects of the Savannah Commons assisted living facility and its taught me a little more about the entirety of the scope for the project.  We are working relatively closely with Landscape Architects and I think that’s awesome.  I am learning more and more each and every day.  Had my midterm review with my main mentor Mike Nixon and it went better than I could have hoped.  I’m just glad that I have the opportunity to grow and actually learn as opposed to being tossed into too many situations that I’m 100% unfamiliar with.  Don’t get me wrong, I have a good deal of trial by fire at SGANR, but I have people here who take some of the heat off of me by assisting if I need it, which is awesome.  It’s also cool to know that this is a growing firm.  A few potential architecture hires came in and toured the office space and it’s awesome knowing there is room for growth within the firm.
