I'm 23 and still sort of taking college. I'm mainly focusing on certifications. I got my A+ which landed my current job ($15 an hour) and I'm working towards my MCITP (and towards bachelors) which will quadruple my salary once I get that and the market gets better. IT isn't a bad job field, there are some downsides like it's easy to get out of shape, and you'll get sick of sitting on your ass all day. Get your A+ and maybe an internship for some experience. I hated my job for 3 years, but my supervisor just got fired and now I love it. The factors that make IT at an employee level stressful is shitty leadership and micromanagement. Good luck!
