Well you never know; some people’s entire careers are around the designing, building and maintaining of one entire substation. That’s it, that’s their life. And some people love it *shrug*
I mean, the project is cool, but I wish it was a little more realistic. But, unfortunately, last year’s senior design class did SMRs so oh well.. It’s also hard to feel like I’ve learned absolutely nothing because this is like actual work rather than homework and it’s all so foreign. So much of our curriculum seems dedicated to just learning the language of nuclear engineering (which is absolutely necessary), but it just leaves me wondering how the fuck I’ll manage doing anything without looking like an idiot in the real world.
Also I’m just grouchy because I have a giant senior design report due tomorrow that’s taking an eternity to write and I’m panicking about job stuff (
because if I don’t get a job right out of college, I’m a total failure who wasted all that money and will have to move back home and I should’ve never done this in the first place because I’m obviously not smart enough).
