I was recently discharged from the navy. Between the state of florida paying for my school and the military paying for my school; I have almost 8 years of school free. Machenical Engineers are harbingers of change and progression. My dream is to create something world changing. My only problem is that I can't start school until the next semester. I hate stagnation. What should I do in the meantime? I originally joined this thread to find someone near me that I can learn from, but there's no way to tell how successful that will be. What should I do to improve my self while I wait?
