This question irritates me a lot. I frequently think about this question and ask myself which would really make a person happier in the end.
For me I feel stuck in the middle. On one side I love college and learning, but, on the other hand, I want to get away from society. The unseen horrors of society can corrupt and dilute a persons mind;thus, robbing them of their purity and innocence. Returning back to simpler times would embrace more traditional values such a as modesty, honor, and respect.
