Be a pilot... It'll suck it'll suck in the beginning of yor career, but once you're in with a good company or airline... It allows me to keep up my bad habits with cars, trucks, rockcrawlers, the list goes on. Plus it's legal to go 250+ mph all day long! (Above 10k' of course!)

It's okay. Im 36 and I still dont know what I want to be when I grow up either.

My biggest advice is dont waste your time and money, and presumably your parents money, or especially put yourself in debt going to college if you aren't 100% committed. Education after high school, of various types, is really important today. Military training, technical school, and four year degrees all have value that can help build a career.

Bottom line, if you pick an avenue of study, be prepared to put 100% effort into it. If you dont feel like you can put that commitment into it right now then I'd say get a job you can tolerate for a few years and save, save, save for when you can make that decision.

Dont wait too long to establish a career path. I'm just now going to graduate from college this year. I'd give almost anything to have had this motivation ten years ago.

I'm 40 and work for Mercedes Benz in system skills. I perform electrical tests on the vehicles when they come down the assembly line.

So I'm leaning on pursuing automotive engineering but not very good at math oh well. Seems like I would love help designing cars (maybe a camaro )

Crew Chief here on the C17 Globemaster. 14 years in the Air Force. I've turned wrenches, was a Flying Crew Chief for a handful of years, spent some time in Quality Assurance, now I investigate aircraft mishaps. Point being that if you decide to go into the service there are plenty of opportunities to take advantage of. I'll retire at 38 and start a new career.
But...I have averaged a deployment (4-6 months) every 3 years with plenty Temporary Duty (TDY) sprinkled in there. So keep that in mind when service is placed before self. If you have any questions PM me.

I put on my pants one leg at a time like everyone else, except when they're on... I make gold records.

My father is a mechanical engineer and my brother went to school for civil engineering. I have an idea of what I'm getting into

Do you really? I'm fairly certain the only helicopters I haven't flown are military. I wouldn't mind some stick time in the RAH-66 though...

I highly recommend it as well although flight school is expensive, start saving now! The first time you fly solo will change your life.
