How many toes do you have?
This is what I would do bby12.
I would take 2 years off from starting college/vocational school/or whatever.
During those 2 years which will go by fast...EVERY week I would think about what it is you want to do with your life. I would especially talk to people in the fields that your interested. And, make sure you talk to a TON of people in the fields your interested in. They will tell you the good and the bad. And on your own do research on the computer about the fields your interested in. Believe me, those 2 years will fly by fast. (I know you don't think so, but they will.)
During those 2 years take a waiter, retail, whatever job to have some money coming in.
And also have tons of fun during those 2 yrs. Party a lot. Just don't get into any real trouble! Have fun...you have your whole life ahead of you. Too many times kids rush into college not really knowing what it is they want to do in life and then when it's too late they realize they chose the wrong career. Hopefully, your parents will put up with the 2 years thing.
Good Luck kid, and do some serious partying for me too.
By the way, how many toes do you have?
