I just joined the Navy as a Nuclear Engineer. I was in college before majoring in Nanotechnology. I had failed calc III (lazy) and was feeling out of place. I had so many options in my face that I didn't feel like I could dedicate myself to something. I am fascinated in physics, neuroscience, nanotechnology, etc... I suppose being entered into this program will allow me to not worry on nonsense and follow orders. Since thinking for myself allows too many roads to *think* about traveling. Nuclear fission is cool and all so I believe it will be an interesting time in my life. I have researched the life of a Navy Nuke and realized it isn't all I thought it would be. To tell you the truth... The only reason why I slacked in college is because nothing was challenging. Sure, the math was hard. But I never got to discuss anything in person with a professor. Everything was too general. I wish I could be working in a MIT lab right now doing complex quark research or something that fascinates me. But anyways, yea I joined as a Nuke. Discuss.
