Hello all. My name is Stew. As the title says, I'm contemplating becoming an astronomer. I'm 23 and spent the last five years in the Navy. I'm out now and want to go to college. (I'm currently stuck in the field I had in the military because I have no other skill sets that will get me a job) Sadly, I was a slacker in high school and didn't take advantage of what was offered to me. I have nobody around me who is capable of helping me with this and I'm not sure what to do or where to start. What steps do I need to take to achieve my dream? And once I achieve them, how difficult is it to find a job? Thanks in advance.
