Re: To be or not to be???
That being said, (Sucks to wake up to the dream), I'd like to pose an opposing opinion.
It sucks to have to spend many nights in many different hotel rooms in many different cities. It sucks to have to get to the airport 2 hours before show time to fight with crabby gate agents, paperwork, computer terminals, and long lines. I do all of this now, and I'm on the plane as a PAYING business traveler. (I can't log a single hour that I spend sitting in the economy section.)
Someday, I'll share my career change aspirations with the board. For now, let it be said that nothing is more expensive than regret.
I've got a great paying job, supportive wife-to-be, and am engineering my life so as to be able to take a shot at my dream, flying. My point is that you must never quit trying. If flying is your dream, keep trying until you are flying.
If one day you find that you can't take it any more, Great! That means that there is an extra seat open somewhere for me.
