When you were a child, what was your dream for the future? Has changed?

When you were a child, what was your dream for the future? Has changed?

When I was a kid, I always dreamed of creating my own world. The detail is different from time to time, but the overall goal is the same. And my dream spread from a small aspect to a larger one due to the interrelationship between everything.

I still remember my first dream, this is the moment after reading "Little House on the Prairie", "Sans Famille", "Doraemon" and watching many documentaries on television about animals, earth, space and science, they make me have urgent wishes. about discovering the world. I dreamed that I could have enough freedom to go anywhere I wanted instantly, with some magical vehicle that

When I was a kid, I always dreamed of creating my own world. The detail is different from time to time, but the overall goal is the same. And my dream spread from a small aspect to a larger one due to the interrelationship between everything.

I still remember my first dream, this is the moment after reading "Little House on the Prairie", "Sans Famille", "Doraemon" and watching many documentaries on television about animals, earth, space and science, they make me have urgent wishes. about discovering the world. I dreamed that I can have enough freedom to go anywhere I want instantly, with some magical vehicle that allows me to travel anywhere in the world. So most of my time when I was in elementary school I was reading, watching cartoons, documentaries and imagining that I was traveling and creating magic.

After that, some realities hit me, I realized that magic does not exist. But I still do not give up, I dreamed of rebuilding my house to make many laboratories that I can experiment and create things, I dreamed of creating an underwater vehicle-plane and building a tunnel between my house and the sea (my house is close to the sea about 1 Km) that can allow me to travel anywhere in the world whenever I want. I had once dreamed and imagined creating a base on the mountain, the island and the depths of the sea (I like nature and solitude, and now I still like this). I even dreamed of creating a base in space and imagining how to create a connection between these bases, how to make them become automatic.

I grew older and I realize that I live in a world based on money and the management system that was built and modified long before I was born. And I'm just a human, a weak human who will never do anything that I dreamed of myself. I feel weak and sad, and this time my dream of changing to how to create a good balance system, how to make money, how to bring people together, but so sad that everything is out of who I am. I dreamed, I imagined but I always found a dead end when facing reality. And from this moment on I let myself flow with life and try not to think about any of my dreams again. But they never get out of my head, so sad.

Now, I want to regain my courage, I am trying to gather information and learn about this world, but the more I learn, I feel like this world sucks. But I still want to create something, do something. But my dreams of big things like that, I only dreamed of creating my own shell, my own small world (a small house in a rural area, it can be, surrounded by friendly people that I somehow like, enough money to live the rest of the life). my life, a small family with children, a personal space and a workshop to think about design and try to create things that I imagined)

Hoh hoh, This question prompted me to write down all the thoughts that disturbed me from childhood until now. : ((. I don't know now what the future holds, but I hope I can improve in the future, there is still a long way to go ...

When I was young, I wanted to be a volunteer firefighter like my father. I had a fire station and fire trucks and I burned things and was quick to put them out with my trucks. I also loved construction of any kind, but especially building. I watched when houses were built, I still do. I also helped my father in odd jobs he did to earn extra money as a carpenter and cabinetmaker, his trade. I loved building and still do.

I grew up outside of Rochester NY and the job options were Kodak or Xerox. I loved playing with electricity and electronics. I collected old televisions and radios in the trash and

When I was young, I wanted to be a volunteer firefighter like my father. I had a fire station and fire trucks and I burned things and was quick to put them out with my trucks. I also loved construction of any kind, but especially building. I watched when houses were built, I still do. I also helped my father in odd jobs he did to earn extra money as a carpenter and cabinetmaker, his trade. I loved building and still do.

I grew up outside of Rochester NY and the job options were Kodak or Xerox. I loved playing with electricity and electronics. He would collect old televisions and radios in the trash, take them apart, and put all the goodies away. I used the speakers and cable from the television and ran cables all over the house and even in my tree house. Then I connected the speakers to my turntable. I made a control panel in my basement workroom with switches and light to tell me which speakers were on. Nothing very sophisticated but I was interested in electronics.

To get a good job, the best course for my interests was engineer. I started college in engineering program. I had a year of calculus in high school and it wasn't my strong subject. Everything in the engineering program was calculus-oriented, calculus included. Consequently, I got very bad grades.

After a long fight with my father, I changed my major to a two-year career in electronic technology. It was fun and not so heavy on advanced math so I got it right. By changing careers, I missed the postponement from college. Then Vietnam and the draft called me and I had number 69 as my draft number. Normally a happy number, this was not one of those moments. Another boy in my classes had a low number and told me he was going to join the Coast Guard. That sounded better than going to Vietnam in the army.

I had a good background in electronics, so I chose electronics technician as my career in CG. During my time I took a correspondence course on television repair. They had kits to build when you completed the sections and the final kit was a color television. I did very well on the course.

When I got out of GC, I got a part-time job at a TV repair shop while completing my AS degree. I stayed there for 3 years on minimum wage. I had applied many times at the large employer Pratt & Whitney, but they never called me. I finally decided to try to get a job as an electrician. I applied for places and at PW for an electrician position. The electronics lab was suffering for people and they saw my credentials and brought me in for an interview.

I got the job at a huge increase from what I was making, with benefits I didn't have. When I got to the TV store, my boss asked me where I was and I told him I got a job at PW. He didn't let me go two weeks, he just told me to pack my bags and leave.

At PW I was in heaven doing electronics manufacturing, construction and electronics, what could be better? I rebuilt an incorrect build from a vendor that was critical to a test. The rebuild was done in three days and I was recognized for engineering. I was offered a temporary position to help me with writing and follow-up work in the field. That became a permanent position. I also loved to draw and had a couple of drawing classes.

I advanced to senior designer and then I was promoted to engineer without a degree. And the rest is history, but now that I'm retired, I do handyman jobs just for fun and play money. I build Christmas displays and things for my children.
