Zach Bacik replied to Ian M's discussion Can anyone become a salesman?

Profile Information

Website
http://www.zachisonline.com
Interests
Working towards early retirement, enjoying good drink and smoke with friends, trekking through nature for solitude, traveling the world to learn.
Books
Don't get me started. I have a shelf full of shame that stares me down daily.
Movies
Whatever I'm in the mood for when there's a moment, but honestly, who has the time?
Music
An eclectic mix of music's recording history from the '50s and onward. Probably too much pop and synthesizer for most people's taste. Screw them! I like my music to remind me of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Interested in Engineering-Any Knowledgeable Guys?

Alright, so I know I posted a whiny thread a while back, but now I'm working on getting ahead in my life, and I have some questions.I'm quite sure I'm going back to school by the Fall semester at the Community College I was attending before, and I am really interested in funneling my interest in science and invention towards entering the program to transfer to my state's university for the engineering programs there.I've noticed that quite a few guys around here are engineers, or engineering…See More
