Social life without uni?

    • Thread Starter

    So i'm a lad in his second year of A levels and i'm thinking about getting a job instead of going to uni. But is it boring? I'm fine with working 9-5 but I guess i'd be living with my parents which is in a very average town about a 30min bus journey from the nearest city. I'm worried if I do get a job ill just end up with no social life? Don't want to waste my youth sat around in the lounge watching Location Location Location every evening If anyone did this and has any advice it would be massively appreciated!

    go to uni! in my final year of university and would easily say these are the best years of my life
