Ask anybody over 40 if they are doing what they wanted to do when they were 16. No matter what you chose now, there is probably a 95% chance you’ll change your mind before you’re through college. If your not considering college, change your mind right now.

Next, your 16, so its difficult to understand what making a living means, but think about what a carpenter/woodworker makes. I did it for 15 years and just got tired of struggling.

Its very important you like what you do, but when your struggling to make a living, its hard to like what you do. Your going to find you’ll like doing a lot more than you know now.

Its also ok to change your mind. Learning is a good thing. Keep Lear Ing no matter what and you can’t fail.

As a father I’ll say one more thing. It sounds like your dad just wants what’s best for you. That’s what good dads do, so keep that in mind, no matter what you decide.
