One Word of Caution for all your education enthusiastic.  It may never be what it seems to be.  For school, work and leisure activities, you might be on the road, transferring between schools, being signed for a special assignment, and encountering many temporary part-time jobs.  Many people are quite content staying home and doing nothing at all, been cheerfully supported by community programs that's lot more rewarding than going to vocational schools and finding a real jobs that will last.  In addition, many people in the neighborhood may never have this experience, and they will be making up stories to fill their time.  If you ever doubt or question, you could be the odd person out.  Life seems to be so unfair, at times.
