I really wish that I had become an HVAC technician instead of a banker! Back whenever I was in high school, I had high hopes of going to the technical school here in town so that I could get my HVAC certification within a year of graduation.
That was basically what I wanted to do with my life and I thought that it would be a great thing for me to do.
Back then, I just knew that I wanted to be an HVAC technician. I had always been interested in mechanical things and in helping people, and so I thought that being an HVAC technician would be the best of both worlds. During my senior year of high school, one of the guidance counselors at my school thought that it would be a good idea to talk me out of my original plan, though. I guess she somehow thought that it was really important that I go to college instead of to a technical school like I had planned. She even talked to my parents and got them to start thinking that I should go to college, get a degree, and become a banker, of all things! I guess that’s what my aptitude test results had said that I should be. I somehow let all of them bully me into this plan and now I am trapped in a job I hate with a lot of college debt that I didn’t even need. I wish that I had just gone with my original plan and gone to technical school to get my HVAC certification instead.
