It still had to do with building buildings, but it wasn’t going to cost me a fortune to go to college and it still seemed really interesting to me.
I’m so happy that I became an HVAC technician instead of an architect. I always used to think that I wanted to go to school to become an architect once I finished with high school, and I had a complete plan for this. My parents were both completely on board with my plan, and they both supported me. They really wanted me to become an architect also, and so that kind of played into my plans. I always was one of those people who wanted to please my parents, and so when they said I should go to architecture school, I believed them! Well, this plan went and could be expected up until it didn’t. I did not even realize that I was interested in becoming an HVAC technician until a friend of mine told me that he was going to a local technical school to get his HVAC certification. When he told me about the classes and how long it was going to take him, I started researching it myself. It turned out that I was actually interested in becoming an HVAC technician myself! I thought that everything seemed really interesting andI started to think that maybe it was the right move for me. It still had to do with building buildings, but it wasn’t going to cost me a fortune to go to college and it still seemed really interesting to me. Now, years later, I am so happy that I decided to go the HVAC technician route instead of the architecture route. I’m really happy with my job and with the HVAC company where I work. I’m grateful for my friend pointing me in this direction all those years ago.
