I dropped out of college, took on some odd jobs here and there. I'm working as a clerk at a video rental store right now (inb4 Clerks reference, although that movie is spot-on with the stupid questions people will ask you). I'm going to community college now for Criminal Justice because I took the time to go out and live in the real world for a few years and find out what I really wanted to do with my life. It's not unreasonable to take some time off and just, you know, live your life. How else can you know what you just like as a hobby or what you like as a career? Community colleges are no worse than regular universities. Unless you're going Ivy League, a degree is a degree. inb4 you'll forget everything from high school if you drop out: community colleges offer basic refresher courses that you can take if you forgot the quadratic formula in algebra or MLA formatting on essays or whatever.

tl;dr Don't be afraid to take some time off from school and figure your life out. Work some retail jobs, intern for some local companies, go traveling if you have the money. Don't sign the rest of your life away to a career you don't even know if you want.

I hated the fact that daria was always so pessimistic and trying to make it seem like the world is ****** up enough to be emo about it.
But she was always so damn right.
Never has such wisdom made me so mad.

If you have the possibility to take a one year course in a college or university, I would recommend taking something that gives you a good perspective on more than just one subject. For example philosophy, after a one year course you will be able to know what different kinds of education or path you can take, while still keeping close to games. But as Obi-Wan says: "You must do what you feel is right, of course."
