Switching my focus while in trade school

I have been known to change my mind a lot, often to the chagrin of my parents and siblings.

  • Whenever they planned my birthday celebrations, I could never make up my mind on where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do.

No matter which option they would choose, I would often lament that we hadn’t chosen the other option. I can’t imagine how aggravating this must have felt for them all, because it embarasses me to think about it. By the time I got to school, I had to learn how to make decisions and be content with them regardless of the outcomes. That’s what happens when you choose a class and can’t switch out. You take a leap of faith that you’ll want to be in the class, and usually you can switch past a certain amount of time. That’s how it was in college at least. And I left college nowhere closer to being employed, so I attended trade school afterward. That’s when I started taking classes in food service with the intention of being a chef, but my interest in this soon fizzled out. In the end, it was the heating and cooling industry that grabbed my attention the most. I wanted to work in an industry where I knew I would always have work opportunities while getting paid a fairly decent amount for the level of physical exertion I’d be expected to give each day. Now I’m happy finally working in my long term career being an HVAC technician for mostly residential clients.
