What is a day in your life like?

Hi! I'm a freshman in high school, and I think I'm interested in mechanical engineering. However, I'm somewhat hesitant, because I don't know if I'll like everything that mechanical engineering will entail. I'm not talking about math or physics skills (I know it requires a lot of this already), but the actual job details. Can you tell me about a day in your life as a mechanical engineer? I've seen vague answers before (like "I design stuff" or "I build stuff"), but I'm curious to know exactly what a day in the life of a mechanical engineer is like.

Thank you! :)

Thanks for your question Rachel.  I've posted a "Day in the Life" profile so you can read about my day there.
