I remember not knowing what I wanted to do in college, when most 18 years old had picked out what they wanted to do already. I regretted missing out on prom (wasn't allowed to go), I thought I was smart, and looking back now I want to shake the 18 year old me, and tell her to practice being less lazy.

Exactly my thoughts of 18 and still I don't know what to do. I'm kind of in a track but not stable. I wasn't sure about anything back in 18. I was fallen into this track even after the university. I did a Physical sciences general degree in university. So I had opportunity to select one out of many career paths. I chose IT coz I was chosen to work at university IT unit afterwards. That wasn't really a my choice. But there was a vacancy and I just applied. They got me and I fallen into that track. That's my story.1

My 18th year was probably the most dramatic (both 18th and 17th tbh), I was in a really dark place, it was when I was at my lowest point in my depression, I was suicidal, I cut myself. Snuck out partying with the wrong people, lost all my parents trust. I was a mess. Then second half of my 18th year came when I moved back to my previous country away from all the drama and I eventually started to heal, got out of depression.
What I would say to my 17-18 year old self would be that things will get better and you do have a future even if it doesn't seem like it at the time.3
