Hello there, I'm curious as to what you may have to say in the path I have chosen. I am currently attending a community college full time taking chem, physics, math, engineering, welding/mech courses. My true passions are a general inquiry of ;human/animal psychology,politics,space/nature, sustainability,physics Recently(1 year ago) I stumbled upon what I conceive will help me become the happiest and give me the most meaning in my life. Brief description of myself I was raised in a modern day american house hold, which comprised of videos-games, television, sports and a lack of studies. With these values I set foot into the public educational system only to find out the only thing that came natural to me was athletics. To make a long story, I could probably count all the books I have ever read on the fingers of one of my hands. Hopefully this displays, I did not grow up with any support or guidance in education. Luckily I did have a father who was a big time skeptic. This skepticism re-lit my desire of knowledge and understanding, which I believe all kids are born with. Here I am a month away from my 21st birthday, with the desire of understanding and knowledge more concentrated than ever before. At times I get discouraged in my education because I'm typically surrounded by kids that are a lot more brighter than I am in the subjects of science. Luckily I am still fairly young, and hope I have time to catch up. I am very interested in sustainable technology and alternative energies. The reason I chose mechanical engineering is because I figured it is a broader scope and I always thought of concentrating to early would limit myself. Also I'm really not sure what type of things Id be more into building as I have never been built anything besides a chair and a bird house in high school. Although I do plan on building a rotating garden before I transfer. My apologies for the long post, hopefully you guys can guide me in the right direction or assure me I am on the right path. Responses highly appreciated.
