Default Re: Ughh...Advice?

im on the same boat man. first i wanted to be a mechanical engineer, makin well over 120k a year, and i wanted to do it to design new ways to power transportation vehicles, or make the current ones better to help out the environment . but then i figured that im not the kind of guy to sit at a desk 16hrs a day drawing and doing calculations.

So i kept thinking what could i do that would help people, and something i would enjoy going to work everyday. So i decided to be a firefighter, and since id only work everyother day or two, im also taking college classes for welding and automotive along with EMT and fire fighting, i love the idea of both ideas, and i enjoy working with both. i guess in the end i just listened to my heart and put the concern of money out of my mind when i came to the decision. hope that helps.

Either way enjoy college! im 19 also, and i've figured out a couple of things. 1- the classes are wayyyyy better then high school, 2- the parties are nonstop and fun as hell! and 3-the women in college are absolutely definitely fantastically drop dead hot! (well most that is ) so enjoy it, cuz we arent gonna be in our teens and 20's forever!

I agree with Marie

There is nothing in school that says you cant take those classes for mechanics, even if you are not planning to do it. The schools don't care, they want your money.
