What is your biggest fear in life? Flying? Being murdered? Spiders? Well, those would be some pretty common ones, anyways. Personally, my biggest phobia is aging. There are so many aspects that scare the crap out of me. I don’t want to get gray and wrinkly, or to see my skin get all papery and thin. I don’t want to watch people dying around me from freak medical incidents. I also don’t want to wind up alone and forgotten. I guess it’s been all of these ideas floating around in my head that recently inspired me to quit my job, leave my family, and start a new life. I think it’s for the best. For 25 years, I’ve working in the financial industry, but not anymore. My new plan is a little cooler. I’m going to school to become a central cooling and AC specialist in my brand new city! I made the decision as I was driving away from my old home, several states away at this point, and passed by a large billboard touting a brand new HVAC certification program. Well, I figured that was as good a place as any to establish my new roots, and I pulled over the car. I rented an apartment, and enrolled in the HVAC trades school the very next day. It will be an 18 month program, at which point I’ll test for my heating and cooling technician level I certification. Then I should be attractive as a ventilation intern at one of the local HVAC shops, if nothing else. I’m excited for this new life I’ve created, and I can’t wait to get started on all my heating and cooling equipment coursework.
