It’s been seven years now since I graduate from College with a degree in Architecture. And Up to now, I haven’t taken yet the licensure examination for Architects. Two years after graduation and after completing the required two years working experience before taking the board exam, I have attended a review classes but I actually did not proceed on taking the exam due to some personal reasons. Despite of being an unregistered architect in the Philippines, I was still able to get a job in the Philippines and have given a chance to work overseas as an architectural detailer and eventually become an assistant architect.
Now, that I choose to become a fulltime mom and will be base in the Philippines very soon, I am thinking of taking the Licensure Exam this coming June 2011. Waaah…After seven years, I think I need to have a thorough review. I almost forgot most lessons from college. But I am not yet decided. Since taking the exam means baby Z will be under the care of a nanny for three months which I don’t like.
I just need more time and wisdom, to help me decide whether to take or not to take the licensure examination. Whatever my decision will be, I am still hopeful that I would be able to practice my profession and became a freelance architect in the Philippines while pursuing a full time mommy career at home. I think I don’t need to become a super woman to be able to do both. I just need determination and commitment to become successful in both field. So help me God.
