markbao and DaniFong are two HN readers with stories you may be able to relate to.

Look up Hans Reiser [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Reiser] and Niniane Wang [http://niniane.org/] - they are early dropouts in the tech industry. It's not totally insane to fast-track your career.

Hans Reiser ended up a murderer too. Be careful not to follow his path too closely :)

Indeed. YMMV! :)
