School's Out Forever!

School's out completely.


I'm sure you all remember the famous song by  Alice Cooper.

I vividly remember hearing it on my last day of high school and was glad to finally be done with that batch of boredom.

I was driving home tonight and the song was playing on the radio.  I had two very special conversations today, and in each one, we discussed the state of education of the architectural industry.

Specifically, in one of the conversations, we were discussing the new Building Design Suite Ultimate package that includes everything and 3ds Max, Navisworks and Inventor.  How much training exactly do you think you'll need to get up to speed not only on the workflow of just Revit Architecture, but the BIM process, LEED, IPD, FM, Inventor, coordination with contractors, LOD 5 and so many other things.

When exactly will you have time to actually get a set of drawings out the door with all of the training you're going to need.  Please don't delude yourself into thinking that you'll be able to get away with 2D CAD for the next 20 years. It's just not a reality.

So, if you really think that's school's out forever, here's another theme song for you:


Na-na-nah-na, na-na-nah-na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye
Na-na-nah-na, na-na-nah-na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye

(Goodbye), Goodbye, it's over, we're through, it's done
Our relationship is no longer one on one, so I quit girl
I don't need this, I'm disgraced 'cause in my face
You spin, I quit steppin' out with another guy
And after givin' you my love I deserve to know why
How long has this been going on, how long have you been doin' me raw
You thought I didn't know, you thought I'd never go
Well, that's why I'm makin' this song, to say goodbye

Na-na-nah-na, na-na-nah-na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye
Na-na-nah-na, na-na-nah-na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye

Pack your bags, leave, get out of my site
I won't share you with another man on any night
You try to play me for a fool, but now you see you've been schooled by the E
And it's plain to see, you thought you had luck like a four-leaf clover
Your luck just ran out, home girl it's over
I hope you had a lot a fun, were you lyin' when you said that I was number one
Well, I guess it doesn't matter, it makes no difference
I caught you with a smokin' gun, or so to speak, girl you a natural sneak
And the hand you dealt me was really weak
But that's alright, you won't see me cryin', I brush a girl off when I catch her lyin'
So when I toss you out don't dare ask why, don't try to return with a tear in your eye
That's just my way of sayin' goodbye

Na-na-nah-na, na-na-nah-na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye
Na-na-nah-na, na-na-nah-na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye

Usin' me, confusin' me, inside you abusin' me
You think I'll stick around so you can keep abusing me
Wise up girl, I ain't playin', you try to make it better sayin' let's hit the hey and make love
Then I know that your loyal but I can't take the stress, I don't need the termoil
You told me that you love me but it was a lie
You know that I care, but I must say goodbye
Who is it that you thinkin' about when we kissin'
And when we all alone is it him that you're missin'
I couldn't stand the feelin' when I see a man in my spot next to you
So what you want me to do, forget about it, act like it never happened
Turn the other cheek and wait to get slapped again
Or until you say when you're through with me but you will see I'll be the first to say b-y-e
So when I toss you out don't dare ask why, it's just my way of sayin' goodbye

Na-na-nah-na, na-na-nah-na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye
Na-na-nah-na, na-na-nah-na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye

I must admit it, you hit it well
Did you get your kicks puttin' me through hell
Runnin' around with your new found child, he's not a man
He can't get wild, but that's alright, girl, you made your choice
And maybe by now you're sick of my voice, but it's too bad
'Cause you made me mad, and I'm gonna show you all the things that you might've had
Then you'll be the one feeling pain and misery
Regretting the past (goodbye) 'cause you're history
So when I toss you out don't dare ask why, don't tug at my sleeve as I walk by
Don't try to return with a tear in your eye, it's just my way of sayin' goodbye

Na-na-nah-na, na-na-nah-na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye
Na-na-nah-na, na-na-nah-na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye
