In retrospect I don't even feel as though I chose it. It was a path of necessity. The most school I had the time or money for was a trade school. The rest was just whatever work was at hand and paid the bills. None of this is what I would have chosen for myself. It's all for the family's needs.

But, I've spent so many years stifling my "dreams" I'm not sure I have any now. I guess I shouldn't be embarrassed that I no longer want to be lead singer in a band at my age. So there's that...
I hear you. I felt somewhat pushed to my field. There were always expectations I was going to be an engineer since I was good at math and science. I really wanted a career in music. I played 7 instruments before I was out of high school. I ended up in mech engineering, partially due to the pressure and partially from the fear of not being able to make it on a musicians pay.

Can I be part of your dream as the bassist? I did get close. When I lived in Columbia, SC the band I was in cut a demo and we got picked up by one of the local stations for a while. Hearing yourself on the radio for the first time is an experience I will never forget.

It's a plan. Let's call ourselves The Fallback Position?
