I’m still there, I’m now 23, and quite some stuff happened.

I talked about being an apprentice at a company named SES Nouvelle in my previous post. Well, this company closed (we learned the news in december 2019), so I had to find a new one to finish my apprenticeship in. This whole period was quite hard for me, the people at SES Nouvelle didn’t help me at all and I was left alone with no financial help whatsoever. There was kind of a big injustice there but nothing I could do about it, so I left and continued in a company named Sectronic. Everything went well in that company, I actually found some old colleagues from SES, and after a year they offered me to continue working for them, so I accepted and am now an Embedded Systems Engineer since two months.

I’m very happy about the end of my studies and am overall happier than I was these last three years. One sad detail is that after almost 7 years, my girlfriend and I separated. I initiated it but I guess it was a common decision. She wasn’t really there when I needed her, she got disinterested with time, became more independant in a way that left her relationship on the side… I am very invested in my romantic relationships and need to have that same vibe on the other side. I’m much happier in a relationship than alone, I know how to make my girlfriend happy, I’m very passionate and romantic, but I need my girlfriend to also be invested in a way that she wants to build and make evolve that relationship. So anyway, I’m alone right now, hence pretty sad on the love side of things. I have a crush since a few months but it’s not going very fast, she doesn’t live here and I lack some confidence as always (especially since my previous relationship started degrading, makes sense), so I have no idea if she is like “out of my league”, maybe not interested in a relationship right now, etc. Anyway, we’ll see, I’ll have to try things out. My two previous girlfriends got interested in me first so it was easier, but it won’t always happen and let’s hope I have my chances to be liked by someone and make that person as happy as ever.

On another note, my motivation for my personnal projects has kind of died with Covid (because oh yeah, that happened in-between). It slightly is coming back, but work also takes me quite some time. I’d like to showcase a new project at Monts’ Young Inventors show, I’d like to work more on my Twitch channel (maybe YouTube), but I really need some viewership and it’s hard to get when you’re starting out especially today, I’m too late. I’d still like to create my own company at some point (let’s seriously hope it works out if I do go on that path, but I’m really interested in that and have some ideas about a more risk-free kind of company in tech). I might go showcase some of my projects on the Récap show of the LeStream Twitch web TV. Really excited about it!

See you next time! :-)

Hey guys!

Going back to Tilde Town is always fun, sadly I don’t post much here. I’m still working on all my personnal projects, preparing for the Young Makers Show of Monts 2019. I’m also now studying embedded electronics engineering at l’École des Mines de Saint-Étienne. This course is an apprenticeship that I do at the company SES Nouvelle, which makes road signs (I work on dynamic ones with LEDs).

See ya!

New car

Hey, I got a new car for my 20th birthday!

So I have a Hyundai Atos Prime since about a year. I needed this car to go to school, as public transports would take more than one hour. It's a yellow and fun car that my father paid for a “small” amount (2200 €) considered the small mileage on it.
Sadly at the time, I didn't knew a thing about car. I started getting interested in cars when I got mine, so looking back at it, it was quite a big mistake to buy this car and I hope I can sell it for somewhere between 1500 € and 2000 € but there's no guarentee, and that is really stressing me right now.
Anyway, my grand-mother is 95 and her ophthalmologist told her she shouldn't drive anymore. Great idea as the car took beatings every now and then. It's still quite cool she just stops driving at 95!
So for my 20th birthday (which is to come this next February 12), she offered me her car. Cool! It's a Peugeot 1007 (vive la France !), a “monospace” with electric sliding doors (yeah, that's the only car with that!). It's a dark blue model from 2009. Oh and it's an automatic transmission, huge improvement over my Atos Prime! It's also the sport version (that's rather funny to call a car like that a “sports car”): 1.6 L 16V 110 hp.
I now have ABS, ESP and 7 airbarg compared to the Atos Prime which has… 1 airbag. The only downside to this car is it's gas mileage. My Atos Prime was already a bit high with a fuel consumption of 5.9 L/100km on paper, but this one is at 6.6 L/100km on paper (will probably do more). The upside is that the annual maintenance has to be done every two years only! That's the only car I know like this, so the money I loose on fuel, I win it (I hope) on maintenance costs.

I'm thrilled to work, tweak, customize and drive this car for the next months/years to come! It's in really good shape with only 15k km, my grand-mother replaced the damaged parts as soon as they were damaged.

Happy to come back to tilde town, see you!

Hey, it's me! Happy to be on Tilde Town, it's great to see a community like this with low level, deep and vintage computer enthusiasts. =)
