Go to college somewhere. It doesn’t matter where. Go to a college your parents can honestly afford. Study something that fascinates you, not something you think is “practical.” No matter what you major in, you’re still going to graduate with virtually no skills and have to start out at the bottom of whatever field you pursue. College is about broadening your mind and sharpening your intellect. Take a few classes outside your comfort zone. You may find you like modern dance/physics/calligraphy. Appreciate that you are surrounded by adults who know more than you and are hungry to share their knowledge with you. Befriend your professors. You get more out of them that way.
