Welcome to my Homework5a webpage!

Hello, my name is Coleman Sharpe and I intend to be a Mechanical Engineer. I am currently a Freshman in the First Year Engineer program here at NCSU, which is why I stated that I intend to be a Mechanical Engineer instead of stating that I am studying to be one. I decided to be a Mechanical Engineer because I like to discover how products work, why they work the way that they do. I enjoy solving problems and making lives easier or more efficient for people based on an old saying, "Work smarter, not harder." Mechanical Engineering is also the broadest engineering degree, which will allow my studies to transfer to almost any job area. It even touches on nuclear power which is very interesting to me.

My favorite relaxation hobby is surfing. I have been surfing for five years. I surf longboards, shortboards, funboards, and even boogie boards (sponges). I learned to surf in Virginia Beach, a.k.a. Lake Atlantic. I enjoy going to other beaches to surf and see which areas have the best waves. The best feeling about surfing is when the board is just being carried down the face of the wave, and you pop-up and just coast parallel to the shore.
