I'm a bit of a late bloomer. I had no idea what I wanted to do out of high school so I spent my late teens and the first half of my 20s in the working world. Eventually I discovered that it's hard to get anywhere without a degree, so I traded my full time job for a part time waiter gig and recommitted myself to school. Four and a half years later, I had my engineering degree.
I enjoy trying new things, even if I am reluctant to do so at times. I've recently tried my hand at rock climbing. I want to go skydiving at some point in the relative near future. It terrifies me, but I want to do it.
