I've been to four colleges, taken three years off of school to live, travel, work, and figure out my life plan. I absolutely love the built environment (currently doing home renovations as a job) and I love cities, and think about what makes a city great, and what should be changed for the better. I've been pretty excited about the whole urban planning/urban design field for many years. I am going back to school this fall to finish my bachelor's and pursue the field. I've always thought it would be for me, I've always been a dedicated geography nerd, and after travels, time and thoughts, I feel even more confident about urban planning as a life-long career.

My open-ended question goes out to the people currently in the field; Tell me what you have to say/how you feel about being an urban planner/designer. The good, the bad, the ugly - and anything else you have to say about being in the urban planning realm.
