Its a mind blower, when I compare our father’s accomplishments to mine when he was our age. Granted, that was a weird and different era for sure. But it’s still shocking to see such a stark difference in what was possible in those days. We may have great Heating and Air Conditioning, smart cellphones and all those other things. However, the occasions continue to wither. My father became a commercial airplane pilot and worked for more than 40 years with the same airline. And he did all of this with only a GED and a stint in the military. He l earned aviation mechanics in the military and then went to tasking as an airline mechanic. But, he didn’t come home, and drink beer with his feet resting in the Heating and Air Conditioning. Then, it was on to flight school and into the cockpit with the same airline company. He was able to get a beach house with central air Heating and Air Conditioning. And he did all of this by the time he was 28. Me on the other hand, I’m overeducated and saddled with the debt from a graduate degree. The task that I hold isn’t even in that field any longer. I’m 28 years old and I am living in our parent’s basement just to make ends meet. Thankfully, they are both super supportive and welcomed me unequivocally. I helped my dad finish the basement. We put in new ductless Heating and Air Conditioning so I finally had some heating & cooling. Of course, I am paying for all that. It’s the least I could do for such a great spot to live for free. Hopefully, the economy will turn around and I will be able to snag one of the few occasions in our field of employ. Until then, I’ll like things such as great Heating and Air Conditioning.
