    Following your heart is not a bad thing, just not always practical.

    am not familiar with technical high schools so bear with me-- am guessing that your classes are geared toward your choice of becoming an electrician?

    at this point - go talk to a navy recruiter. show/tell them about your school program. its possible they will suggest continuing school as an electrician would be valuable and save them having to train you.. then again they might want you to be trained by them.

    the only caveat - once in the service they will send & train you for whatever THey want you to do. not neccessarily what you want.. so the more qualified you are the more choice you have..

    good luck.
