I just finished building an Estes mean machine for my dorm room. You should've seen my RA's face when he saw it. So far, I've built six models. Hopefully, I can fly at least a couple of them next week. Building model rockets has been great stress-release for me as I deal with the many demands of college. It's has been very rewarding for me to be able to relax for a couple hours and work on a rocket kit after finishing my homework. Today was especially rewarding because I had been working on a drafting problem for EGR120 for over an hour. It was kicking my butt but I finally figured it out. Boy, was I happy! If I have time, I plan to help out a rocketry club here on campus. They hold workshops to get people L1 certified. I think that would be a great experience and opportunity to intorduce more people to our crazy hobby. When I save up some more money I am going to get some more kits. I'd like to get my hands on a Fliskits Duce and an Edmonds Arcie. That will come in due time. I better get to bed now, I do have classes tomorrow after all.
