My short career in engineering


Little known fact: I was relatively proficient in the use of AutoCAD when I was 12 years old. It was one of those random courses that my parents found in the classifieds in the newspaper that they then signed me up for.

I really loved being able to visualize how things fit together, how you can draw things out flat and then translate the drawings into solid things.

I could not see myself doing any sort of engineering as a living. I don't think I have the attention span for it.

I do like sewing patterns though. I like the way the lines for the different sizes echo each other, but are rarely parallel.
