Shows the Silver Award... and that's it.

  1. Hey man, just wanted to say that I sat through and watched you video. Really great stuff you got here. To add on about your advice about classes, they also help show you what you don’t like. When find out what you do and do not like, it really helps you create a more concrete plan that will lead you to your goals. And can help you avoid internships/jobs that may not be the right place for you.

  2. So, I have a job with very long hours as well (usually 7:30 - 6:30 at a desk). My biggest tip is to not shirk the warm-up and to hydrate a lot during the day. When I was a student I could almost jump into a workout immediately. Now, my body needs to get ready more for sprint work after 11 hours at a desk (weekends are still fine). I'll usually build in a full mile up to twenty minutes of warm-up before starting sprint work.

  3. Yeah that’s a good point. After sitting at a desk all day it is definitely good to get the body as loose as possible. Thank you!

  4. Me too, I’m in a civil engineering summer class that run 7:30-5 (or sometimes 6) and its land surveying so I’m outside for the majority of it and I tried running once. I felt so drained and dead and everything felt sore lol

  5. Yeah, it’s interesting how much work can really fatigued you lol

  6. Ngl how the class is depends heavily on the professor. I mean heavily, like either you could have a sweet time in the class or it becomes more work than a gen-ed should be. If you can, research the professors then go from there

  7. No worries, doing the work will get you an A. You got this, no matter when you take it!

  8. As boring as it is, warming and cooling down are underrated factors that determine how well you perform in a race. For example, by not properly cooling down/warming up that could lead to soreness and other pains that will prevent you from feeling fresh for the race

  9. You called? Good on you for striving to improve your knowledge. That's the right attitude and it never stops. There is no bottom to any rabbit hole you find in this field. I'll second a couple things from other comments. Wikipedia is definitely a useful resource, but verify equations and data used for critical inputs from a reputable source (like a NASA or mil-spec). As an intern, you are surrounded by experts. Seek them out and learn from them. Be gracious and respectful of their time and they will continue to teach you.

  10. I recommend reading Modern design and engineering of liquid propellant rocket engines, it's a long title but the author's are Huzel and Huang. While it's focus is rocket engines it also discusses, feed systems, valves, and tanks. It's based on Apollo era technology but it is extremely practical and is far less theoretical in it's design than Sutton is.

  11. What software/coding stuff do you think aerospace engineering students should know?

  12. I also transferred here into the Fall 2020 semester and because some people from high school I have not had the opportunity to really meet other ppl on campus. Even with GroupMe I haven’t had the opportunity to actually make personal friends so feel free to hmu

  13. Only two nickels? My commander has us writing hand written memorandums every week 💀

  14. I was able to be rank 2 in my flight as a 100, and honestly I just focused being a role model. I expect leaders to show up for their cadets, take charge, and contribute with free will rather than doing things because you have to. So because I had those expectations for leaders, I made it a personal responsibility to express those values myself. After all, why would you want to follow a leader who can’t meet their own expectations? Obviously this is easier said than done, but basically it’s all about stepping up. Action speak louder than words. If you want to improve your ranking, show it through you work basically.

  15. The best thing you can do is just to try out the program. As long as you do not sign any papers/contracts, you are free to walk away from the program if you feel that it is not right for you. However, if you do decide to try it out, just know that you are not wasting your time since it will help you become a better leader. Even if you are only there for a semester, it can still benefit you.

  16. Not a bad plan. FYI, as an honorably-discharged veteran you have the automatic inside-track for

  17. How do you keep your engineering skills sharp? I was interested in going the same route as a 62E or maybe even look at 13S, but I would definitely want an engineering job after my service

  18. Best chance of getting in the Space Force is getting selected as a 13S. The only career field in the Space Force that requires an engineering degree is 62E, which is also in the Air Force. Not sure if your degree leans more space than aero, if so it might increase your chances of getting in, honestly don't know.

  19. Also for my degree, my school has an option of going down a “space track” or “air track”, but on the diploma I don’t think it will specify which track I chose. Personally, I’m more interested in space though

  20. So I would most likely go down the AFROTC route to commission, especially since OTS is very competitive for non-rated slots. Developmental engineering would definitely be on my dream sheet tho, cause it’s a cool career choice too, especially if I can be selected as to be a flight test engineer.

  21. I mean in general you would likely have to report to someone that you had been tested positive for COVID-19 (idk who for sure since each detachment is different when it comes to guidelines I think). But then again, this may only apply for your detachment if you have in-person LLab sessions. Definitely double check with your flight/felllow wingmen but all in all you definitely should quarantine and you may have to report it to someone.

  22. So I’m pretty interested in the Space Force, and I do understand that one way to get in the Space Force is through AFROTC. During my time in AFROTC, however, I had difficulty staying motivating and enjoying the program. But still, I have a great interest in the Space Force. Learning warrior knowledge and working with a team is fine, but the military aspect of it doesn’t intrigue me at all. Any advice as to how I can overcome this hump?
