Choices

People tell you you can be anything you want when you grow up. But not every dream you have along the way will bring you satisfaction and happiness. Life changes, our experiences teach us things, and our perspectives change. Wherever your dreams take you, have fun along the way, because the end isn’t the most important—it’s how you lived.

Fortes and not so fortes

Not everyone can be good at everything. If you work with what you’ve got and steer yourself in the right directions, you may find yourself passing by people with talent that decided not to purse as aggressively as you did.

Getting my mojo back

Have you ever had a scare in pursuing a passion? I had one last year with inventing where I got flash burned. I didn’t go blind, but I took that as a sign to pursue my writing more. Now I am starting back slowly with experimenting, but it’s definitely taken a back seat to everything else.

88. Building off failure

Inventing is a numbers game. Edison said it the best, “I found 10,000 ways not to make a lightbulb.” Nowadays, you can google how a lightbulb works and it seems like common sense. But when candles were the only source of light at night, no one had a clue how a lightbulb worked. This resonates […]

65. Blacksmithing

The coolest thing I have ever done for an experiment is one summer hooking up with a blacksmith. I called him up, told him what I wanted to do, and he invited me to his home where he had a workshop set up for his own blacksmithing projects. It was sooo awesome. I bought everything, […]

31. Venting

My vent for the last few months: I am just so frustrated. I want my experiments to work, but the majority fail. Yes, my Teazzed straw is awesome, but the project I have spent a little more than 4 years on still doesn’t work. I have a notebook filled with ideas and strategies on how […]

23. Project updates

2 updates on projects: That new invention idea I’ve been working on quietly in the background, the one with the headphones, has failed yet again. I’m pretty sure my theory is sound, I just need a good way to implement it. It’s a pretty cool idea that could be super beneficial, if it would just […]

8a. Not everything goes according to plan

So…that experiment I posted about a few posts back, hoping it would be the one that works. Here are the series of steps that have happened so far for this version of my project:                   Step 1: For this particular experiment I am working with speakers, and I had to re-wire one set to my configuration.

6. Doing the MacGyver thing

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Thomas Edison Remember how I said I want to start out on the right foot? Let me amend that a little: I want to start out on the right foot as frugal as I can. For my experiments, if […]

5. Googling for information

I love to Google the heck out of a subject and learn as much as I possibly can. I love the internet for that reason: I can get details on a subject down to the nitty gritty levels, and glean as much as I can to formulate a hypothesis and start experimenting. Mostly my big, […]
