Home! (and the inside of a USB car charger)

Finally made it home today! After a long day of driving and unpacking, I’m exhausted…definitely looking forward to day of lounging and ice cream eating tomorrow.

Anyway, I found this little guy on the kitchen counter:

Dad said it stopped working. He opened it in hopes that it was just a broken wire he could solder. Unfortunately all the wires were intact, meaning one of the components failed…but we don’t know which one. Regardless, it was still neat to see all of my favorite electronic parts: resistors, capacitors, and diodes (oh my!).

Yearly reflections and project updates will be coming soon!
