i feel like a total nerd, but here goes anyway: i got to work with metal at school yesterday. first time in my life. i shaped it with an acetylene torch, hammers, rolling mill, and saws; it was awesome [insert little girl scream]! i have never done anything like this before, never in my 30 years. it is not a new career path at all, but it is fun just to bang the crap out of a piece of copper. i did not think i would like the class, but i am dead wrong. the teacher did not like my paper models, but i thought of something new that she may like instead.
