What to do with my life?

I'm at a crossroads, and I want to figure out a few things: a) What I can do with my interests, in the long run. b) What I need to do in order to achieve my goals. c) Whether I should start undergrad next year. d) What I should do with the next year of my life if I don't start undergrad next year. Long details inside, but if you have a personal story of how you handled these decisions that has nothing to do with my special-snowflakeyness, I'd love to hear it, too. [more inside]

I'm thinking the most drastic and simultaneously safest way to do this would be to spend time in California. I've been there twice and loved it each time. Trouble is that, given my unique set of circumstances, that's starting to look more like a pipe dream than a feasible reality. Is there any hope of finding a good, well-developed reason to move out there own my own, at least for a year? [more inside]

Should I take a pre-college gap year?

I'm a senior in high school, and I'm thinking about taking a gap year. I have half-decent web development skills. My plan is to go to some other city, get a job or internship as a web developer, and live by myself for a year. Maybe spend a few months traveling elsewhere around the country/world. Is this a good idea? [more inside]

Advice before I fly the coop for a year?

I (26/male) am leaving Los Angeles in January for at least one year of backpacking solo around Australia, NZ, SE Asia, and possibly some other places!
