I am 20 years old. I goofed off in my first two years at school and didnt accomplish much, didnt know what I wanted to do. I have always been very hands on/love creating/taking apart/ wondering about everything. I started working for an airline and fell into aviation, I recently moved to Jacksonville, and am just about done with my pilots license. I got a job with Airtran (about to be southwest airlines) and enrolled in the local school up here, it wasnt until about a month ago it really clicked in my head on what I want to do. Engineer, mechanical/aerospace/structural I really just want to ENGINEER. Well the 42 credits I have now are towards a general AA, they not going to do me anygood transfering somewhere. My other problem is math, and I beat myself over this but I know I am not stupid, I just know for a fact I have what it takes, but the whole time I have been in school I havent had enough focus to really just study and do what it takes to be a success, and I'm worried I will flunk out. But I just KNOW somewhere deep down I can man up and do what it takes. So heres my problem, I love working with the airline I fly free make great money, but from what I have heard there is no way I can do a degree in engineering and hope to work full time, so my question is.. I have been thinking about just saving some money, and in the next 6-12 months moving to a university (UF,FIT,UCF undecided) and making school my 100% full time job. No job to worry about, just school and back and putting everything I have into it, because not having a full time job at southwest wont really matter because I will be able to advance anyways when I'm done with school (or be rehired after for a short time) because my ultimate goal is to enlist in the navy OCS and fight my *** off for a flight slot (and other branches)--I guess what I'm saying is I'm at the point where I'm done screwing around and I REALLY want to do this, but I need more confidence. I need to know that it IS possible to succeed in calc 1,2,3 and physics if I have the time and effort to put forth to these classes. Sorry for the long post, tried to explain it all... any advice is appreciated.
