When I first got out of college I thought I wanted to be an engineer for the rest of my life.
But after doing it for seven years I decided it wasn’t a good fit for me so I left the industry.
I then ran my own local business and was buying houses, thinking I wanted to be a real estate tycoon, but it didn’t feel right so I left. After that, I became a comedian and thought I would make it and become famous, but when that didn’t happen I left once again. Now I write heating and cooling industry articles and am just going to make enough money to get by till I hang up my working boots in 14 more years. I live overseas now in a small town and I could easily live off of my social security checks each month when I am 70. I play music in a band in air conditioned and heated clubs and would like to do this the rest of my life, unless I get bored of that too! I don’t feel like I will get bored with music though and will keep doing the HVAC tech writing work to float me along while I keep doing my music thing. There isn’t a lot of money in music, and that is fine with me, as I just want to entertain people and have fun for the rest of my time on this planet. I wish I saved more money when I was working as a local contractor in the HVAC field but it didn’t work out that way.
