Electronic Project Kit [ +zoom ]
I mentioned a trip to the thrift store on Sunday.
I tend to walk past the clothes and head to the back wall with the yellowed appliances and stacks of tattered Harlequins. The junk.
To my delight I found one of these electronic project kits for 2 bucks. Score.
I always wanted one of these growing up, but I had to prioritize and got the markers and colored pencils instead. That is why I turned out to be a designer and not an engineer—that and I’ve no mind for math.
I just read in someone else’s journal a talk about making major changes in the middle of one’s career:
“You are standing on the edge of a huge abyss; the unkown. And then you jump. And then you see it wasn’t an abyss: it was a threshold.”
Heavy duty, inspiring stuff.
I suppose I can be an engineer after all.
For now however, I’m going to focus on the immediate future: a hat full of chocolate unclaimed by trick or treaters. I should explore professions in the candy industry.
