      Yes – I love it anyway. Building things is rewarding. It feels awesome to make things. Robots are on another level tho imo. They are challenging and complex, they are cool, they give you insights into things you never thought you were interested in (such as philosophy – its hard not to question how unique we are if its possible for a human to build something out of plastic that also shows ‘intelligence’). Building robots allows you to express yourself – to be creative. They help you learn – you will learn a ton from making them. You can get them to do cool things – and useful things. Things that someday could make a big difference. I dont know what more to say. You guys all know im hooked by this stage! haha
