I was able to throw everybody for a loop when I decided to go to a trade school to earn my HVAC certification.
There were a few of my friends who kept saying that becoming an HVAC technician would be the best move of their lives.
They talked me into it saying how I would make a great living and I would be able to help people for a living. I didn’t really know what I wanted to do up until that point and I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to go to college. I thought college would be a giant waste of money if I were to graduate and not find a good job. With this trade school idea, I would learn a valuable trade and I would be able to get a great job as an HVAC technician. I would even be able to start my own HVAC company if I didn’t like working for other people at various HVAC companies. I took everything very serious and I studied hard so that I understood all the HVAC terminology and all the dynamics of heating and cooling systems. I learned a great deal in a short period of time. There was one thing that bothered me though and that was the fact that my brother was overseas in the military. I didn’t know when he would ever get back and if he would be able to see me graduate. Well, when I did finally graduate, my parents threw me a giant celebration. I partied with my buddies but I was still sad that my brother wasn’t around. When he crashed the party though, I was so happy! He told me how proud he was of me and that I was going to be the best HVAC technician of all time.
