    Well, what do you want to do with yourself for the rest of your life? There's plenty you can do without education, and you can go do some education if later if you need it.

    There is however, a lot you can't do without education. But then, there's no point training to be a doctor if you want to work as an engineer, or if you're happy working in McDonalds.

    Depends completely on what you want to do. What job do you see yourself doing?

    You need to be in some form of education, so you'll need to go to college or acquire a job which has studying alongside it (typically an apprenticeship) - that's my understand at least.
