Am I dumb for wanting to go into a trade?
It seems like all my school does is force the whole idea of Higher education. They do way more time boasting about it, and hardly talk about tech schools, trades, ect. A good majority of people I know are going to a 4 year school and when I tell them I'm going for welding seems like they look down on me. I'm smart and In AP classes but I think I'm the smarter one. College is ridiculously expensive, plenty of people drop out because it's too expensive and hard, and there's plenty of job opportunities in the trades. It just bugs me how people look down on blue collar workers, I want to work for my money not sit in a desk all day.
