  1. going through a bit of a crisis

    instead of the typical "i don't know what to do with my life"

    i'm going through a "where do i start" to get the skills i want in life :(

    skills i'd love to be very competant in:

    metal fabrication
    bike mechanic

    currently, studying mechatronics engineering at tafe (1st year)

    i've done a fair bit of cad, and had studied it previously... so it comes quite easily to me
    i have a general grounding in electronics, but not very extensive

    currently working in an IT helpdesk... but this is only part time work while i'm studying

    i want to quit my job like nothing else in the world... but i want a job related to any of the above fields...

    i'm happy to begin full time work asap(2/3 weeks notice)
    and being an apprentice isn't a problem with me :)
    i want to continue studying part time though

    hoping some of you guys might be able to help me somehow :)

    i'm considering finding work as a metal fabricator or bike mech apprentice...
    wouldn't mind working as a trainee draftsman or something

    anyone? please?

    thank you :)
