I recently became aware of my need to prep after entering the real world after college. I assumed a degree would garantee me a job..... After two years of sitting at a desk, building a new house, buying new cars, having our first child, and digging ourselves into debt. I was layed off! I realized in just an afternoon that I cant rely on anyone to provide for my family, and that I was only capable as long as I had a job. My only skill I have is sitting at a desk as an engineer. Luckily I was hired by another company very quickly and only collected 7 days unemployment. But, that situation changed my life. Shortly after this, I read Patriots and realized I needed a plan for my family. And, that I desperatley needed to learn some skills! So here I am. I'm not going to lie, if your going to be ignorant, having a background in engineering is a huge benefit. I've already begun some major projects and thought they might be interesting to follow.
