Major- Mechanical Engineering
I chose this major because I enjoy using CAD software like Solidworks and AutoCAD to create 3D models of different useful parts. I also like solving problems and figuring out how different things work.
One of the more difficult things I remember fixing is the tape cartridge for a label maker. I found that it is not made to be opened up and inside there are small parts that break easily. I was able to reroute the tape and put the spools pack in place so it could function again.

I definitely wish there was a good guide online on how to fix those cartridges.
I have also done basic car maintenance on cars such as replacing headlight bulbs and a full set of brake rotors and pads. (I learned a lot about leverage when unscrewing the rusty nuts on the rotor!)
