Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
When he went to college, he took all of his core classes first because none of the majors stood out.
Tried accounting, tried economics...says all of them were "blah, boring."
The whole way through, he was diving for urchins and lobstering on the side to make a little extra money.
Eventually got his degree and worked a 9-to-5 job, "did the whole 'can I have a raise, sir?' thing."
Says he was never happy; spent his days counting down the time until he could get back out on his boat.
Decided to quit and become a lobsterman full time.
Says it took him a while to figure it out what he wanted to do, but looking back, he's glad he didn't choose the "nuclear" lifestyle.
Feels lucky to have found his passion; has been working as a lobsterman for five years.
