Not sure if anyone is in the same boat as me but i am constantly reminded of the things i want to do but haven't. I went to work right out of high school building and remodeling houses and have made a descent living at least enough to support myself which has to be a positive aspect of my life. My mother passed away last year and since then i have been hell bent on pursuing the things i always planned on but haven't yet. I have always been into technology, computers, electronics, and so forth and if i had the money to go to college i would have gone down the path of engineering with emphasis on electrical engineering, but i didn't and haven't. I find myself starting now at 32 years old reading chapter one of the electronics text books available on this site and wondering if there other people out there like me. I am not really stupid actually i have been told many times that i am very bright and scored very high multiple times on professionally given I.Q. tests. Yet here i am starting at the beginning wondering and worth some self doubt if i will ever be able to read, learn, and put together enough dots to make a descent understanding and knowledge enough to make some cool things/prototypes that i have always had the idea of designing not to make a min dollars but for my own enjoyment and self esteem. I guess it would help to know if there are others out there like me and they say there's strength in numbers so if there are some of you or me's out there i think it would help me to have others to learn from or together and maybe network with similar minded people. Please if you are reading this no matter where you are on the experience timeline or education background or what ever i would love to talk chat email worth anyone willing to, my people in my circle are tired of hearing about electrical currents, flows, static or dynamic and definitely don't help me learn or help me continue down the path i so desperately what to go down. Thank you for anyone and everyone who took the time to read this and big time thank you to anyone in advance that can help me with this over whelming task as it seems to be right now.
