WHAT’S YOUR IDEAL WEEKEND?

To hang out with family or friends and do exciting activities like games, listening to some good music, and dance.

STAR TREK OR STAR WARS?

I haven’t seen either of them, but definitely planning to because I hear several people talking about it.

WHAT IS THE NERDIEST THING YOU DO?

When I try to explain an engineering-affiliated project to a non-engineering person and try to get them to beat a similar excitement level as me. There’s also that sudden feeling of excitement when disassembling adevice, because I get to point out to others the internal components I know and their functions.
