How important do I think education is

Very. No matter if you want to get into trades or some kinda professional field or business owning or whatever. If it wasn't important no one would do it. It costs heaps and it takes years.

I went to uni, I started out doing an Arts Degree (English Literature, Philosophy, History etc) and I did REALLY badly! I kinda knew what I wanted to do. So I went and saw a careers person at the Uni. They said "What you are doing is fine for where you want to be. You should just keep doing this."
And I am like.... hmmm Ok, and kept doing it for another year, then I said to my self, "Hey, you know what. That was a really bad idea. I will switch degrees." So I did.
I was much better and worked much harder at my new courses.

So my advice to people wanting to get educated is to take some time to figure out what you want to do in the end, rather than messing up really badly in the first place. It reflects badly upon your final scores.

Have a good Sunday. Work tomorrow :(
