I haven't been here in a while. What's the best way I can tell that? I'm glad you asked! Or maybe you didn't. When I start to type the URL in my (Google Chrome)
I'll be rethinking the concept of this blog hereabouts when I get a chance to think and type concurrently. Which is to say... I have no idea when.
Needless to say, I think things have changed a bit since I last wrote regularly. Back when I did so, I couldn't quite identify myself with the term "engineer". Nowadays, if I did so I'm sure the real engineers in this world would look at me with contempt and ask how many professional exams I've completed, to which the answer would unfortunately be "none".
As a matter of fact the things that currently absorb my mind aren't purely engineering in nature. I'm between several different places (mentally and physically) of planning, memorizing checklists, building flying skills, and just plain ol' living life. There might be things in there that benefit from having an engineer's analysis, and I depend pretty heavily on things that have been designed by smart people, but for now I'm not really in that world.
Boy oh boy is life going places! I was done and gradumulated at Texas A&M in December (still class of 2014, whoop!), wandered around to visit friends and family, tried to finish some unfinished projects, moved out of state in April, and am currently on the road again for the job. Come September I'll be married to one Yulia who has quite effectively stolen my attention and my heart, so that'll be fun too.
(To those that have English as a second language, this right here is an example of "understatement". I just thought I'd make it more obvious with a parenthetical statement)
