When the Going Gets Tough

Dear Fellow Basement Scientists,
Having built our wind tunnel and realized that construction takes a lot of patience, time, and effort, do not be discouraged! Completing meaningful work is often difficult and at times frustrating. When you reach this point you must ask yourself, “Why in the world am I doing this?!” Then, you must remember why you are doing it and hopefully you have a good reason. For me, and fellow basement scientists, the answer is: To learn, explore, and create. I hope that is enough to keep you going, for me, I live with the passion to create. So, let us remind ourselves what it is we are doing, and continue with the same enthusiasm knowing the goal is worth it.

Best Regards,
Ben Washington
