Ever since I was a kid, my future path has been set out for me. My grandfather was in the Marines and my dad was in the Marines. They both talked about the experience like it was the best time of their life. I have seen a hundred different movies about the Army, Navy, and Marines. It never looks like the time of my life. Ever since we had a career day at my school, I have been thinking about attending technical school instead of joining the Marines. I know my mom and dad will be devastated, because they think my future is a done deal. I’ve told them a dozen times that I don’t think the military is the right choice for me. They don’t care or they don’t listen. I would love to work with my hands, and lately I’ve been thinking about pursuing a career in the heating and AC industry. The heating and AC industry is one of the fastest-growing career fields. Most people who graduate from a certified technical school can find employment immediately after finishing the program. I read some information about the classes, tuition, and fees. I even drove over to the technical school to get more information about the heating and AC technician program. My family is getting together for my sister’s birthday next weekend, and I think I’m going to drop the bomb then. Since it will be a party, I’m hoping they won’t be able to scream and yell. I don’t want them to be disappointed, but I’ve already decided that my future is in the heating and AC industry.
