New from western Wisconsin
As a junior in high school I have been waffling around with what career I want to pursue. At one time I did have an interest in becoming involved with HVAC. My girlfriends father works in the trade and that is what sparked my interest. I have also thought about vehicle maintenance, air force, and several other careers, but that is besides the point.
Recently, I have found myself most interested in becoming a game warden. All of the classes that I have signed up for next year revolve around that idea. It was very rushed though.
Now that I rushed that decision I have began to think of HVAC once again. As a guy who has only taken two shop classes, it is a bit intimidating understanding the trade. Everything seems so complex.
I really like working with my hands, meeting people, and working mostly alone. HVAC seems to fit that perfectly. I don't know if I am right for the job though.
If there is anything that you can share with me to help, that would be greatly appreciated.

The main thing is, are you willing to learn???

You better believe it! I've been looking at HVAC stuff for the last 5 hours at least.
