After reading the comments..

There are two main themes. Either focus on what you want to do and find the lowest cost to attain your goals or use this time to see the world and figure it out.

You seem like a smart kid. I am personally going through this with my nephews. My sisters are always protective hens that do not understand what I am trying to expose my nephews to.

If I can only share one piece of advice.. it is to buck the system. Choose your own path on your own terms and do it responsibly. Look to the personal leaders in your own network and make a decision for yourself.

You are at an age where your decisions now can shape your future. In all honesty, take life by the short and curlies. You dont have to meld into the public idea of what is acceptable. None of the best leaders in history have done so. Do your best to be honorable and fly by the seat of your pants. At this point, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Believe me, at my age, I do not have this luxury.

Why go into debt now? It isnt like college is going anywhere! After one year of traveling, you will figure out where you fit into the equation. Even if you dont, you will be much better for it.

Escape the matrix and forge your own path. You will be amazed at how many people come to your defense when you choose to stand on your own feet.

If you do not know the path to take.. then seek it. Take my words like a grain of salt...
