Once you are out, you can't imagine how much faster life moves.
For instance, when your parents aren't paying for:
What happens if you have a disease, ailment, disability and you can't get into the Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, or Army? Let's not even be that negative....most folks can't get into the armed forces right now because they are downsizing every branch.
Get a nice job as an electrician, making good money, renting a nice home, and driving a Toyota Tundra....life is good. Meet a really sweet teacher from your home town, and bam engaged, and a baby is on the way.
Electrician (if you are lucky) or electricians helper for the next 35 years. Trying to support a family by crawling through peoples attics, and pulling wire. Right up to the point where your son comes home one day from NC State talking about dropping out because he can't "find his way".
Don't think it doesn't happen that way, because it does.
Stay In School. It's only 2 more years, and they are the least responsible 2 years you will ever have.
