What's everyone up to these days?

I remember when RR started dying someone made a similar thread. It turned out to be really interesting because when the board was created, people were in a completely different phase of their life than when it came to its "end" and seeing how people's lives changed over that course of time is pretty cool, and I think it's a similar deal here with OT.
When I started posting here I was in high school still. Now I'm 22 and working at a local government/ISP tasked with just about the biggest variety of IT work I could think of at this point. It's pretty lit and I've learned a lot over the year and few months I've worked here and pretty glad to feel comfortable with making a career out of IT.
Anyway, other than that nerd shit my life is boring. What's everyone else doing?

Else I work at one of those Esports colleges In sweden as a coach/support for the kids.
Coach everything from gameknowledge in league too self improvement outside and inside of games, mental states, how to practice properly, list can go on and then I also help them if they are new to living alone and need help with laundry , cooking, stuff like that, since they are 15-16 and some move here and live by themselves, as you can understand living on your own at 15 isnt for everyone.
Outside of that play alot of Overwatch and want to play competively , played some ameteur tournaments, but not in a set team yet.
Even if I dont ever get too play comeptetively id like to work in the scene somehow , but I guess playing would grant alot of knowledge first if id like to go onto something other than playing later on.
Its not set in stone yet, but I have been talking to an esports org with an office in the UK who I have sort of family working inside of that perhaps have some sort of internship for me next year if anything, for a couple of months during the summer, in that case id be moving back to the UK after 13 years.
Guess its all stepping stones in what im doing right now , its not where I wanna stay forever obvsly, even if it is very comfortable and work barely feels like work.
For once in my life im pretty happy though, so guessing all is going in the right direction for now.

Other than that just entertaining myself with digital media as usual. Mostly spend a lot of time listening to podcasts(Psych Files, Why?, Radiolab, Social Science Bites, etc.) while playing mindless enough video games to pay attention to them.

Look at me. I can start and stop wars, at will. I can save or destroy the world. I can do anything I fucking want. Just now, I pissed near my toilet bowl because I fucking can.

lately I've been happier than ever and I got no explanation.
I live off of very little money, some would say absurdly little money. living alone is an absolute blessing, I love it.
I bake my own bread, I pickle my own shit, I make my own ice cream, bottle up my own sauces.. even started growing my own fruits, my plants are beautiful.
taken up exercise again, I jog daily and do a lil work out to get up and before I go to bed. uni has been absolutely amazing. humanities was the right decision for me I guess, the (a)s just keep flying in for some reason. I don't even read as much as I'd like neither do I prepare much for exams.
me & gf are going to denmark in less than a week. I have never been to copenhagen and am really excited. then in just about a month I'm going to korea for an entire semester. with some luck and some charisma I got into one of the best unis in the entire country. I also got a scholarship because apparently they liked my application. looking forward to living in seoul.
after I am done with exams in korea I'll pay a lil visit to vietnam which has always been my dream. vietnamese cuisine to me is easily amongst the best in the world and I can't wait to try banh mi or pho from the street vendors.
I'll have my degree in just about a year and after that will probably follow it up with a master degree, maybe take a break inbetween to travel some more. I've already seen a lot of the world, but I want to have visited every continent before I find work.
