You sound like a smart kid with a respectible work ethic and family values. You sound like you have your priorities in the right place to me. Just remember to always be planning ahead and set some goals. For fishing - you usually have plenty of light left after school to hit the local rivers and lakes and beaches. You have winter, spring, and summer breaks (and probably several others). Try and work the odd shifts that others don't like - very early, late, etc. This should give you a better window for fishing (you can hit the morning bite or the evening bite). If your current job isn't working out schedule wise to give you some fishing time - drop it and find another. Don't get stuck for too long in the fast food track. Think outside the bun (er box that is). Also, plan some 3-4day weekend road trips with your buds for camping, hiking, etc to places you don't normally get to fish. That way you are sure (more likely) to get the days off from work.
