Head back to the FBO, you're a pilot

TL;DR - 11 months, 67.3 hours, 5 CFIs, 4 C-172s I took and Passed my PPL ASEL checkride today.

So I've always wanted to be a pilot as long as I can remember, when I was a kid, I would say I want to be a pilot when I grow up. I enlisted in the USAF with the intention of working airplanes, but I got a computer job instead. In 1993 I took my first flight in a Cessna 172, it was supposed to be a sight seeing flight with my girlfriend. I had every intention of starting training but it didn't work out. Whenever a friend or colleague mentioned they were a pilot, they would recommend having all the required money up front before beginning training so as to not delay the training, since I couldn't come up with all the money at once, I never started.
