What did your character want to be when they were just a kid. (This can be in and/or out of character.)

IC: Lucy grew up always loving detective shows, and playing cops and robbers with her cousins. Always drawn to the Crime, Mystery, Suspense books. (Particularly Sherlock Holmes, but others too. Probably no surprise there.) She was also drawn to animals and thought maybe she could do something in that field. She was kind of stuck between the two.

This is going to sound generic, also because I seem to be the first male answering this question... but I wanted to be useful. I wanted to serve my country in either war or espionage, and get the satisfaction of knowing I've done my part as one of the 'good guys'.

But then I grew up and there are all these checkered choices and gray areas, it takes energy just to stay focused.

Longs list.
·At the age of Young Af (cant remember how young but I remember the small miniscule details of being a small toddler), I wanted to be a professor. Being a teacher was fine and all but somehow I knew professors got to get to stick their hands deeper into topics, if they were good.
·Ambassador/Spy (not so much anymore?)/[shrugging]. When you grow up with the world in chaos around you, you feel like you need to try to avoid all possible violence. Sometimes that can be achieved with coordination by both parties, sometimes in the past, espionage had to be used.
·Astronaut. As a kid, I was at the age where science agencies were pushing "you can be both a doer and a thinker" in so many kids programs, and the astronaut academy was a big dream.
·Archaeologist. This ambition taught me how to tell bone from plastic from ivory. It's kind of dieing for me now considering a lot are changing fields because of racist professors.
·Scientist at Area 51. Still an ambition, not gonna lie.
·Artist. Am one now and shall be one forever.
·Blood splatter analyst
·Any other career option is still being decided on, or I've prob forgotten

OOC (Mainly paleontology, being an amateur one, and having it as a hobby is the best thing ever. I have a knack for finding them. )(also I pilfered one from Taughannock Falls State Park, still have it, I will provide a pic if asked)

    Is this person also being paid as well as given the car, or is this only for bartering?

    They're also being paid... and they're not yet 20 so... this is going to be a good life lesson.

    I feel like for the past few months, I've been doing more HR than actual management.

    Time to hire more people into the HR team.

    Some successful projects, most not so much.
    Which projects are you running?

    The biggest one is a pseudo-doppler radio direction finder kit. The club asked me to get it up and running.

    Nice, sounds like a fun hardware gig.

    It's proving to be a gigantic pain. I committed violent atrocities with a soldering iron this evening, and didn't make much headway.

    That sounds almost exactly like me and a soldering iron.

    Hold on, you actually have to make one? I thought there are pre-built parts you could frankenstein together.

  • Eugene Eugene:
    to be fair, I was pushing my equipment way too far. My skills are with small surface mount stuff, not brazing an antenna to a board.
    Quote Link
  • Eugene Eugene:
    Yeah. This kit was just the electronics. You have to assemble the switch board and antenna array yourself.

    but at least I got the oled screen soldered and running before I got too irritated.

  • Chase Chase:
    Nice, oled

    How long have you been working on this kit?
    Quote Link
  • Eugene Eugene:
    On and off since Wednesday.
    Quote Link
  • Chase Chase:
    Not too long, only a few days really.
    Quote Link
  • Eugene Eugene:
    I have the electronics complete. It's the structural side that's proving difficult.
    Quote Link
  • Chase Chase:
    Maybe a few more nights mulling on it would help?
    Quote Link
  • Eugene Eugene:
    Perhaps, but I do have an idea of how to proceed, now that I've seen what didn't work.

  • Eugene Eugene:
    The oled and completed hotspot atop a raspberry pi zero. That was a fun little soldering project.

    That looks like pro-level installation
