Is there no way to be special?

According to these statistics, most people, even wealthy people do not have a Bachelor's Degree by the time they're 23.

I'm set to get mine before I turn 23. Maybe before I turn 22. However, as I've said, what I've been seeing has been contradicting these statistics. Almost everyone I've encountered had a Bachelor's Degree by the time they were 23 or are in the process of doing so. I've now accepted that I won't be special in terms of how fast I get my Bachelor's Degree. But then I turned to the bright side. I thought that if I could get a job as soon as I got out of college, that would be better than most people do. However, I've looked at all my friends on facebook, and they seemed to have been working from the moment they graduated college. This is making me really upset. Nothing would please me more than to hear other parents complaining about how they're still having to support their kid while my parents are bragging about my independence.

@prpinrni,
You will find opportunities in your life time where you can be special. If I were you, Id worry less about how long it took others to get their Bachelors, and concentrate on what you like, what appeals to you. If the people you know are very competitive over date of graduation or who is already working, you don't have to play. Before you know it, you'll be 30 then 35 then 40. Life changes, new interests take presidence over old fresh out of college envies.
