    Did you ever finish college? If so, what degree? Going back for some business classes wouldn't be such a bad idea.

    being a fireman = 35k a year after 1 month of school lol plus you get full benefits, all the perks of workin for the government and you get a huge raise every year. + the more certs you get, the higher your pay.

    if you have a degree in computer science why not do software development followed by team lead/management or even go direct to management from starting as a soft dev?

    Depends entirely on what you want, rarely does an exciting job pay high, if you want money go for the juggular, if you want job satisfaction think what it might be like spending 10-20 years doing something and decide what might be fun to do for that period. Otherwise try something, if you dont like it move on to something different.

    What might work for you is a boring office job 9-5 during the week then doing something exciting part time like working on cars/engines or firefighting or whatever part time

    Its not all programming( im not trying to convince you about anything lol, just telling you as it is ), theres
    - Systems Architecture work( designing the systems or improving the systems to deal with new requirements and coordinating that ), or - Technical coordination which is co-ordinating changes/improvements/new implementations with all the sub projects,
    - Configuration Management/Version control
    - testing /automation test
    - Customer support( for large firms means traveling a lot internationally and not just some idiot at a counter that knows nothing lol )
    - DB Administrator( boring job but pays loads ).
    and a load of other stuff.

    There are huge possibilities in software that have absolutely nothing to do with programming or quality control( which i think would suck too ), but go for the fire thing, whatever you think youd enjoy go for it dude

    I don't know weather to take this seriously i laughed so much, but if you are confident and liked at first meeting but then disliked after then try being a judge. because you only want to meet them once.

    By the looks of things and if history repeats and it always does. Energy and natural resources being what they are , the US dollar being handed out for free and may have little value to other countries, you should enlist ! I'm to old so I'll stay home watch cable and drink beer !
