I also agree with the do what makes you happy. Drop out of school until you find a major that really interests you. I ended up with two degrees in the process of figuring it all out. 2 year auto body degree and an Electronic engineering degree.

What's a "Guard Bum"?

Do what makes you happy, bear in mind that qualifications aren't everything, and you could go on to get a great career with life experience alone, lol.

Well I decided to withdraw from classes yesterday, so now I'm "Guard Bumming" an the definition of "Guard Bum" is someone who rather then getting a job, gets put on military orders an works at the base, this also includes going on local install jobs throughout the week. I was a networking major working on my CCNA, and also am only a few classes short of an associates in electronic engineering. I mean this college thing just isn't working out for me right now, an it's not like it expires I mean.

since this forum works on one post per day per forum I'll post some slightly related info.

I've been doing an AST course (automotive service tech.) at a college of the north atlantic about 3mins away from home since september and well, if you know how long an apprenticeship takes that's about what I have ahead of me and I'm also one of the many people who question their future daily.

Turns out I'm really not the mechanic type and even things like ****ing around looking for the right size socket are wearing me out. I'd like to try automotive journalism but I know my writing isn't good enough to make anything of it. In fact I'd like to try lots of different things I just don't know If I'd be any good. Guidance councellors give me websites to check out and questionaire's to fill out but they're all too broad. does anyone know a way to find a huge list with pretty much every car related profession all in one place? because thet's the point I'm at right now.

I just need to step back and see what I might enjoy doing or what I might be good at but as far as I can see now there are only a few key areas when it comes to automotive careers. (building them,selling them,fixing them,driving them) I really don't know what else is available in the least.

That's pretty lame. Sorry to hear that.

Why do spammers create an account, and wait several months before posting a single advertisement post on the forums?

I just pulled a pair of 86(?) Cadillac Brougham horns out of one in our junkyard for a classic Caddy sound on my truck. $8 for them

I went to the Zytek factory today!! Its a fine example of high quality engineering in the motorsport sector - the sound of a flat plane v8 revving to 9500rpm on an engine dyno whilst being in the same room really blows your ear off. Only yours for 80,000!!
