I knew it was going to be difficult to make a decision about my career path.
It’s a difficult decision that every person faces when they are forced to choose college or a career.
My mom and dad work in the healthcare field and I know they expected me to join them because it’s all they ever talk about. When I was growing up, my mom and dad talked about me being a doctor. It seems like my career was already chosen when I was born. My parents just expected me to go to college and learn medicine. Unfortunately, I have very little interest in the human body, biology, anatomy. I hate the sight of blood and I get squeamish anytime someone throws up. There’s no way that I want to work in a hospital for an emergency room. I would like to work with my hands in a different way. My best friend’s dad owns a heating and cooling repair company. I’ve been spending a lot of time with my best friend and his dad always talks about heating and cooling work. A couple of weeks ago, Brad and I went to an HVAC installation to help out and I had a lot of fun. I think a career in HVAC technology might be the right path for me. I would still get to work with my hands, but I would be outside most of the time instead of inside a building. If I choose HVAC work as my career, it will probably break my parents’ hearts.
