My cousin Eddie plus I used to be genuinely close, but as the people I was with and I grew up, the people I was with and I grew apart.
This happens with a lot of people, doesn’t it? It started while I was in our high university years, because both of us had genuinely strange visions for how our lives would turn out, plus how the people I was with and I would achieve our goals.
I had our sights locked on university, in unique the state university where I wanted to read journalism. Eddie was confused as to why I would want to go to university, plus for our section I was confused as to why Eddie didn’t want to! Eddie was going to attend trade university plus get his Heating plus A/C certification, so he could beginning working plus making currency. I asked him how he could be cheerful with that, because once he was an Heating plus A/C tech what else could he do with his life? Eddie laughed at that, plus said that he wanted to receive a nice living plus beginning a family, plus the spend money from Heating plus A/C work would support that within a couple of years. On the other hand I would need to spend 4 years in university, plus rack up immense loan debt, before I could even beginning looking for a job. So his real question for me was “why wouldn’t anyone want to be an Heating plus A/C tech?” We went our separate ways, plus didn’t talk as much after I went to university plus he started his path to Heating plus A/C certification. I am not upset about Eddie’s future in the Heating plus A/C industry, however I do often worry about our own future.
