Good! I am a strong believer that a post secondary education of ANY kind will put you FAR ahead in the game of life (unless its a PhD lol!!!)

Its shame instructors in high school don't share that thought, their veiws are generally only academic post secondary is the only way to make something of yourself. Never once in my High school years did they promote the trades and that post secondary education route. Either way, dont become a professional student and you'll have it made in life, they use degrees as a means to sift through applicants whether or not they have relevance to the job.

Congrats on graduating from High School. Now the real "fun" begins, well sort of unless you are going to University or College.
When I graduated from High School and went to College, I found the transition to be quite abrupt in terms of workload and degree of difficulty. I don't think High School prepares you well at all for when it comes time to go to Post Secondary. I wish High School prepare the student more by educating the high school kid about what is available out there, job career choices, life skills, and not focus so much on academics alone.
Just my 2 cents.
