Life is what you make it brah.What I hope happens is that,
As soon as I take my last breath, I wake up in my childhood home, walk down the stairs and all my loved ones will be sitting around the table, my dad will pull out a chair and say 'Hello son with have missed you'.
I would then look down to see all my past pets sitting at my feet and I would tell everyone how much I loved and love them.

Fix a few clear goals in your head and work hard towards them.
Life doesn't get better by age, it gets better by situation and it's rare you'll fall into a great situation. Uni/college is the best time of many people's lives because many degrees aren't that difficult to get and you have very little responsibility and a lot of time to party.
I'm rounding out the best year of my life and next year it looking like it'll sh*t all over this year, because I've spent this year working towards great stuff next year. The only way is up if you apply yourself and take advantage of any lucky breaks that come your way.++ Positive Crew ++

Its hard to say. I finished all of my schooling at 25. Got my thesis in, got the pass and had a HUGE "WTF do i do now!?" moment. For like a week i chilled and had a great time, then started job hunting which took about 6 months to get anywhere and let me tell you - its very depressing. You send out hundreds of resumes and application and everyone just ignores you. You get a couple interviews and they tell you that you aren't a good fit for the position, and then EVENTUALLY you get a job. This entire process is soul crushing, i spent like 3 months in robe watching Lost only really putting on clothes to go to the gym and when my parents came over lol
When you get that job you another moment where you feel super old, and its fun for like 2 weeks and then you start hating having a routine and waking up early and realize this is the rest of your life, and how people treat you like a noob at work. Its like being back in the first year of school. BUT it frees up so much time after work you are just done, you can do whatever on nights and weekends.
All in all, i would rather be back in school. Its so much nicer being able to set your own hours when you feel like sleeping or studying or getting to the gym. Its so much nicer just straight up learning new things until you master the concepts and then moving on, work is the essentially very similar every day (maybe once a month you get something to look forward to). Work pays much better and that funds your life choices.
The years spent in school are about learning and being in school 24/7. Work is about actually having a life. Paychecks fund your life. The problem is people who do not have a life usually really dislike the working life because after work hours its torture because they have nothing to look forward to. You need a wife/gf, or good friends to hang out with, you need LOTS of hobbies so that when the day ends you have something to do to keep you happy. You need to have something to work for, otherwise why bother earning paychecks.
