How many got a higher education?

So guys,im just curious who went on and furthered their education. Whether it's college or tech school or any other kind I'm missing out. Military can count as well. I just want to here how you guys saw your lives when you were my age (18 ), and if your plans worked out with your goals.

I am going to California university of Pennsylvania to major in chemistry. I got kind of lucky, with my scholarships and loans I have $1100 per semester left over. So that will help me get school supplies and give me security with my car payment since I won't get all the hours at work during the school year. I plan on getting my 4 year degree then after words going to a pharmaceutical science school or trying to go straight into a pharmaceutical company.

I continued with electronics engineering. Ended up being a broadcast engineer. Loved it while it lasted.

Went to school for business (everyones recommendation) I finished it with a BBA, but I hate the field and wish I went for engineering (expensive and hard, but what I wanted to do). Stuck working retail as I'm not a big fan of a 9-5 pushing paper all day kind of job like I thought I may be. And I can't afford to get another degree, and I feel like I'm too old to change direction now. Not that I'm in a bad spot, but not where I ever thought or hoped I would be.
