Suprising, isn't it?  I got pretty scared about living with
eighteen year olds in halls, and how classes would go.  After
a coupe of weeks, we all turned into people, and the age
thing dropped away.  Ended up with an huge slap of humility,
as I soon started to *learnn* from such 'kids'!

NOt in the *slightest*.  Find your passsion - and live your life
happy, rather than angsty and stressed.  I've never regretted going
back, and shudder to think of how I'd be now if I'd stayed where
I was in the real world.  I also became acutely aware of how much
better a student you are, for having had a real life to rely on.
Stick with it - if you don't live your dreams, whose gonna do
it for you?
