I studied abroad in Australia last summer and that really opened up my eyes. I'm trying to study abroad again this summer. You need to take opportunities like that as they only come around so often. My passion though is film and I am quite thankful for some wonderful professors at UNCC to show me how it works. I'm trying to land an internship for the summer with a studio. In addition to all that I am constantly working on my POS LR Discovery and I am thinking about shadowing a land rover tech over the summer if he'll take me on. Even still I am undecided about much of my life but I made a lot of strides just by seeking things out.

For instance, when your parents aren't paying for:
What happens if you have a disease, ailment, disability and you can't get into the Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, or Army? Let's not even be that negative....most folks can't get into the armed forces right now because they are downsizing every branch.
Get a nice job as an electrician, making good money, renting a nice home, and driving a Toyota Tundra....life is good. Meet a really sweet teacher from your home town, and bam engaged, and a baby is on the way.
Electrician (if you are lucky) or electricians helper for the next 35 years. Trying to support a family by crawling through peoples attics, and pulling wire. Right up to the point where your son comes home one day from NC State talking about dropping out because he can't "find his way".
Don't think it doesn't happen that way, because it does.
Stay In School. It's only 2 more years, and they are the least responsible 2 years you will ever have.
