I got into a technical college, $20,000, Aviatioin Engineer (Mechanic for planes).
I never knew what to do but my parents brought this up so i gave it a try.
I’m 5 months in and i’ve reaching the point where i can’t seem to wake up in the morning ready to enjoy what i’m doing it seems like im just doing it for the good pay.
I want to confront the humans that made me (parents) about it but don’t know how to tell them that it just ain’t my thing.
Might not be a big problem but just need some thoughts on this so..
Well, you can live your entire life by other people’s expectations or you can say fuck it and do what you love. :) Of course it is hardest to tell your parents of all people, but they should understand and hopefully support your decision. Good luck friend!
@theskafish, I have several things i used to have some love for but never a strong passion for something. Kinda still need to explore. I get you though, i’ve thought plenty about this and i anticipate the question, “so what are you gonna do then?”
@smokeup1, they will most certainly ask that question. Also, it will help you to know what you want to do. I’m currently stuck in a rut that I’ve been in for a long time now, I want to get out but I don’t know what to do. Every job out there seems to be a choice of picking my poison. Being directionless is a really lousy place to be.
@smokeup1, I know how you feel man, I was in a 6-year program to get my doctor of pharmacy degree, and after a year and a half I knew I didn’t want to do it anymore. That was last year, I took a semester off, now I’m going to community college for my associates degree. I think if you just tell them you know you don’t want that to be your life, they’ll understand. Maybe take a few online courses or something in some areas that interest you and see where that goes, or find a cheap school and take a wide range of classes, you never know when you’ll find something you really like
@smokeup1, ” Mom , Dad, If you have a few minutes, I’d like to tell you about an important decision I’ve made concerning my education, I understand and appreciate you desire to see me get an education, but it would be financially irresponsible for me to continue to pursue a career which does not inspire me. I cannot , in good conscious accept money for an education unless I have a clear goal and purpose in mind, I decided to take as much time as necessary to put together a knowledge base that will allow me explore the possibilities that I find interesting enough to look at in more detail. When I find some that excites me , I can develop clear strategy and move forward. Only I can choose ” Use as is or personalize it, hope it helps, good luck!
