Lame ass childhood, but nice future after 25+.
Amazing childhood, Not such a nice future after 25+.
Which would you rather have?
You can have both, consider school starts at 8:15AM + 6:00 = 2:15PM. You have the rest of the day to chill with your friends(which have probably been in school as well).
Plus uni\col doesn't HAVE to be gay and lame, you can consider taking courses you actually have an interest in, then you'll have a lot of fun with it. If you wake up thinking your day at school is going to be shit, guess what, it's going to be shit.
The first one comes with the second one in my opinion.
There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.
If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?
I think it just depends on your priorities, or the way your life turns out.
If you are older and happy, with a miserable childhood, you regret not having a great childhood.
If you are older and miserable, with a happy childhood, you regret not taking school seriously and maximizing your potential and future.
If you have neither, you probably regret not having a happy childhood.
Mathematically, 1st choice makes more sense. And also, you can move on with a shitty childhood, but you can't move on with a shitty future for the rest of your life.
