I ruined my life by not applying for apprenticeships early enough. I already wasted 2 years after school by going to college even though I knew a few weeks in that I won't be able to get a degree. I knew I wanted to do an apprenticeship almost 2 years ago, and now I realized that I am too late and have to wait another year. But I'm already not going to college anymore, so I'll be doing nothing for one year, maybe I'll be able to find a few jobs, but I'm not very optimistic because that already didn't work well the past few years. I don't know what to do.
