Now you have graduated. The world is at your fingertips all you have to do is reach out and grab hold. Things will not go as planned for better or worse. The only time you fail is when you stop trying. When asked about the "failure" to produce results, Edison stated "No results? Why, man, I have gotten a lot of results! I know several thousand things that won’t work." Personally I want you to have a machining career to enjoy, but it is alright if you change your mind and try something else. There is no point in a daily grind that you cannot stand if you could make a simple change and be happy.
Give it your all or you will find that you did not give enough in the end. It does not matter if you are tasked with stamping numbers on parts or splitting hairs on a bore, if you give the same HIGH level of work, it will always be a superior product. Never hesitate to get ahold of me and ask questions or let me know if something exciting happens.
