Get all the education you can, but do not necessarily jump into that lifetime job, get married, get a house and get in debt.
This works for many but given a choice, retrospectively, I would not 'settle down' until I was 30. I am 45 now, and looking back, so many
people(friends too) went right into a career, got married, had some kids, got into debt and then wondered if they should have done something different
in life. Granted there are also plenty of folks that have followed that path and are happy too, but I think the expected social norms of college,
career, family, right out of high school are not for everyone. There is plenty of time to delve into commitment.
Save money and/or get some type of retirement going FOR SURE! Consider further developing yourself via spiritual, artistic, exploring our world, or
something less conventional. We are some pretty amazing entities, and there is much to experience, inside and out.
Stay away from pills and hard drugs, for they can alter you in ways that are so detrimental, you can't even fathom it right now.
Travel and see the world and other cultures.
Live anywhere you want, even if just temporarily.
MODERATION with so many things, excessiveness can steer you off track.
Get involved with some type of volunteer work. I work for Habitat For Humanity sometimes and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences.
Keep taking good care of your health.( Sounds like you already value this)
Get a car that has the best track record for low maintenance and reliability. For me it is a Toyota 4Runner. I have had it for 11 years, put 312,000
on it and have only had to replace brakes and timing belt....ever!
Beware of taking in too much information, for it can disconnect you from some other important areas of life, and some of your intuition.
