I'd say go for it. School/work try it out. Worse that can happen is you dont like it after months of trying. But with that said i also would also consider that 4 year college and degree. 1 thing ive learned is when you drop all your eggs into 1 basket and 20 years later the economy is down well what do you do? Back when i was 18 i went into the electricial field did the apprentiship and life was good for the next 15 years
then things went south real quick work dried up and pay went back to days ive never seen and there you sit with no 4 year college degree to fall back onto. It may seem like a waste of time and money but a person can never have to much education and who knows what the job market will be like in 20 more years. Guess my point is with the 4 year degree your options will allways be easier for when times change. At 36 and a familly i cant just up and go get my 4 years degree now because my work field is in the tank.
