Default Lost in life

hi all,

Currently im studying for a diploma at attc and i found out that being a aircraft engineer is not what i want after reading so many negative comments on being a aircraft tech. Should i just hang on to finish the course or pay the remaining subsidies and get out of the shithole? But i always asked myself how far can i go with a ite cert? can someone just tell me what should i do? im really lost in life((((

if you choose your life based on others' comments, that is the most stupid thing you do in your life. think about it.

But then again if people are kind enough to share from experience and warn you of the mistakes they've made in their lives... why simply ignore their advice and choose to repeat the same mistakes in your own life... think about it.

I think you should continue with your diploma. Different people have different opinions, esp on the internet. So take the negative comments with a pinch of salt.

Complete the diploma and use it as a stepping stone to get a degree (which may not be an engineering major) in future. With a ITE cert, I dun think u can apply for a degree course rite. So the diploma will be useful.

Doing what you like for a living is much better than dragging yourself to work everyday and hating your job. If you think that this is where your interest lies, then just go for it and don't let the negative comments affect you.

Anyway, your case is a little special. What are you going to apply for if you drop the diploma and be left with just your ite cert?

Just finish it up. Otherwise your future employers will think you are a failure. One step at a time. All is not lost.
