Trying to get a balance between work and leisure time? HELP

OK this may not be what your thinking

Im at University and im half arsing it and lieing in most days and having a great time socialising, spending time on the computer, and getting drunk. AND EATING

The thing is im coming up to 21 and ive had a relatively easy ride and only worked for 10months in my gap year and part time in holidays.

I still have about £10,000 which must be about $16,000+ in America.

My Question: Do i enjoy my life as a teenager to the max without working much? or do i get into work and say goodbye to lots of free time for the next year or 2 of uni before my career?

    I guess it all depends on what you'd do with the extra income. If your plans for that money are more exciting than getting ****-faced and sleeping for 12 hours a day (and I'd hope they are!) then it's probably worth easing yourself into the world of work now, yeah. Otherwise you're in for a big shock to the system in a couple of years time.

    Another way to look at it: if I had two potential employees in front of me and they were otherwise evenly matched, I'd employ the one who'd worked PT while at uni over the one who didn't. Chances are he'd work harder for me.
