The USA is very “Age oriented”. You’re ‘supposed to’ do certain things by certain ages.

Thanks :)  I think the way that things are set up where you are, you can much more easily wait and not have to worry about University for a long time.

The USA is very “Age oriented”.  You’re ‘supposed to’ do certain things by certain ages.

We get extended benefits if we are in a college. Nine months after you leave, suddenly everything changes and you have to start paying back government loans, health insurance is cut off.  Basically, you are on your own.

Also, we can’t easily get money for living expenses from the government.  We have what’s called Welfare, but that’s difficult to get on, and it’s considered a very strong stigma in the US to be on Welfare.

So, we’re in different systems.

I like the way things are set up where you are.  It seems much more humane.  The way the USA does… everything is based on:

Time
and
Money

The two are always married to each other here.
