Watch cockpit videos and see if that type of flying is “free” and exciting,
No.....from what I understand...that type of flying is work. It happens to combine some's people passion but I doubt many would say that it is as much FUN as renting a Cessna and crusing up the beach on a beautiful summer's day. I miss what I call *recreational* flying and hope to get back into it someday; that beach or those mountains are calling my name!

do you see yourself doing that type of flying the rest of your life?
Yes.

I think TG has is right.....you made the decision early and that is good; but if you think that you are seeing the REAL truth by flying FLIGHTSIM and watching cockpit videos then you only have an incredibly small percentage of the whole picture.
