I’m currently an undergraduate in engineering, and my life is not all fun and games. In fact, it’s mostly none at all. If I had the power to make good decisions I would be doing homework or working on my research every spare moment I had. The fact of the matter is, though, is that I love taking a break from science and engineering and getting a project done. I always have something in the back of my head that I want to be working on, and I won’t have a moment’s peace until I’ve followed through with it. Most people call it crafts, but I’ve never considered myself a “crafty” person. I like to be creative and productive, if you can consider things that don’t actually need to be done productive. I guess you can say I just like to create things. This is the reason I became an engineer. I love seeing something tangible come out of the work that I do. Both of my sisters are artists, so I will never claim to be that. I just like to take a break from the differential equations that are my life and escape into a place where I know I can do no wrong.
