At this point, I am done with studying from a book without any application. No longer will I work without first having a question to solve.. No more simply reading theories and contemplating.
From my intuition, an engineer should be doing one of two things: solving a question and/or making/sharping his tools. No more frivolous reading. That type of work never sticks. My work now, should be a reflection of the questions I come across.
It was these thoughts that cause me to start this website. I don't want the habitual thinking that school is where the theories are studied and the work is produced. Don't get me wrong, I love the school environment but I think it is highly important for me to grow outside of it before I go back. My goal is to really challenge myself with personal study before I go back.
This post is meant to document this point in the process but also to serve as a reminder to myself when I feel like I am getting pulled from what I should be doing.
Legitimately trying to answer my own questions, I think, could bring a source of knowledge that would have been difficult to replicate by other means. I mean, they are my questions....
