Well your there its best to just make the most of what you can rather than going backwards as it will just take even more effort. I always say use the cards your dealt to win the ones you need.

If you don't like the place you've been raised in and if you think you lack passion to build a life there, then take a chance and leave. Worst thing that can happen is that you may end up returning.
Anyway, good luck.
