Right now, it is to build more robots at home – it is me not being able to find the time to do so!
— Lack of modesty alert! 😮 —
I think I’m very lucky to have done and experienced so many different things; travelling, seeing the developing world first-hand, connected and talked with so many people from all walks of life, tried out many different sports and activities, bungee-jumped two of the world’s highest jumps, skydived, skiied (not in the same day!), rode a bike along the world’s most dangerous road (apparently) in Bolivia, saw Mount Everest up close (it was frustrating not being able to go up it, but I climbed up Mount Chachani in Peru – over 6,000m high – , and saw an active volcano in the distance from the summit – that was really something, so I’ve forgiven myself for not doing something about Mt Everest). Sand surfed, sea surfed, sailed with a crew of 10, albeit for just one week. Piloted a small plane (flying lessons). Started doing triathlons (still am doing them 🙂 ) So I think I was also lucky to have these ambitions out of the way before I settled down and had kids, so I’m quite content today!
Other than that – my ambitions nowadays are quite ‘boring’; to continue learning about all sort of things, and to contribute back to society and humanity in a big way – that’d be great, methinks!
I really don’t know, I’ve lots of small ambitions, learn to use my arduino’s better, publish various research papers, I suppose I’d really like to get some recognition for my teaching, that would mean the students appreciate what I’m doing… that would be awesome 🙂
