Part of the Reason Why Engineering Was Not My 1st Career Choice
I had two choice-dream careers in my head when I was 1 year old in U.S. (2004). "I want to be a commercial pilot or an aeronautical engineer."
I chose to pursue aeronautical engineering because I cared about my future family, especially the kids and their future. I minded that I have to be at home frequently to be around my kids as compared to becoming a pilot and being away from home most of the time.
As of now, I am struggling in my college career. If you read my experiences and go thru' my profile details, u might understand what I'm talking about.
MAIN POINT : My 'candle-light is flickering out' because my hope of having a stable family is not becoming a reality (a person's plans that build up a family are not working out), and I'm getting ready to give up about my future family. That means pursuing aeronautical science (commercial pilot) because I don't see myself, at the moment, having a stable family, if I do have one.
Note that I still have a speck of hope remaining in me.
