Main Question or Discussion Point
Hey guys. So here's my story (and I'm sticking to it! - current career joke). Back in high school I had thought that a career working on cars was my dream job. I went to Lincoln College of Technology at 17 and when I realized how big of a waste of money it was I left (with a 3.8). Moved around a bit since then working different jobs and trying to understand what I wanted to do with myself. I found my wife and got my current job and it has been my longest reign of employment. My wife loathes her job so i talked her in to going to school for her passion. She's going to college to be a veterinarian (vet tech first then vet) and she's not so great with math. Helping her do her algebra has helped me realize that I love doing math and I'm pretty good (maybe even great) at it. This tied in with my love of working with my hands (building, fixing, making, etc), along with a better understanding of truly living on my own steam and the value of money, has brought the idea of mechanical engineering to mind. Am I wrong? What is mechanical engineering really like? What do you guys do at work? Do you enjoy it? I'm 24 years old and if I start school next year I could have a ME in 5 years time. Thank you in advance for your input.
