Everyone goes through days when the shit hits the fan.

People ask me – is it all worth it, the work involved, the hours you spend hitting the books?

I’ve always emphatically said yes, though I have trouble spelling out exactly why.

Days like today make it easier. I got to sit in a room and listen to and later interact with, some amazing people. People that changed the world as we know it. Better yet, I sat in a room full of about a 100 people – all of whom want to change the world. These are all people that, in part are all going through the same journey I am. That’s why I love ECE at U of I.

Scientists study the world as it is; engineers create the world that has never been.
