I would argue that life

I would argue that life itself is very much structured - the only difference is that we structure it ourselves.  Usually, people try to adhere to schedules and principles they've determined will suit them well.  In college, one of the things people usually find most difficult is structuring their time effectively.  Is this because we were handed so much structure in high school etc. that we are unable to create if for ourselves?  Or has that high school structure given us some tools in being able to create our own structure?  Daily life beyond college might have less structure depending on what career path one takes, but without the imposed system of structure, people often try and create their own schedules and rules to follow (although this could be because they've become so accustomed to it) - is it the same sort of structure it it's self-imposed?
