just some stuff, and some of the inner most workings of my brain. hope you can bear the utter crap that flows from it.
Engineering
For those of you who don't know, I'm going to major in mechanical engineering at my first choice college next year. As a side note, my second choice college offered me 5,000 a year just for attending, but I'm still going with my first choice. Any way, I decided a needed to document how I became interested in engineering.

You see, it began 5 years ago. Two of my NH friends were always talking about how much they loved being on a FIRST Robotics team. There were times where I would call one of them at midnight, I'd ask what he was doing, and he'd tell me he was at robotics.

The next year, I was a freshman, and I heard that my school had a FIRST Robotics team. I had no idea what to expect, but I wanted to see what it was all about. I loved it. I was one of three girls on the hardware component design team(CDT). None of us had any previous experience on the team, nor did we know anything about wiring. I learned a lot and had a great time. That summer, I was determined I would become an electrical engineer.
