Anyone ever in the same boat?
Hey everyone, I know I have come around time to time with questions over and over but this is the only place that gives me real experience answers so here is my problem: I just finished my first year of college and made the dean's list both semester and was all set on going into firefighting but then I began to second guess myself. I then began to explore various careers (mechanic, welder, farmer, wind farm worker, railroad, cop, etc.) I've always wanted a blue collar career and somethign that helped people so naturally being a police officer or fire fighter were what seemed the best options. But both of them have downfalls for me; firefighting would be great and mostly everything I could ask for in a job but I despise thugs, criminals, etc. I wouldn't want to let them keep doing whats wrong after my crew was to help them out or save their live (I've been told its just a part of the job before). Therefore, the thought of being a cop comes into my mind. However, there are somethings that would drive me crazy about that career even though I would be getting thugs and criminals off the street. So I end up going back to the railroad worker welder etc. I want a career that means something but I'm not sure what to do anymore. Anyone ever been in a situation similar starting out? Any advice? All help is greatly appreciated because I feel more confused than I have ever been.:confused:
