Default Please help me. I am 21, have no skills, very little qualifications. I feel worthless

Long story short,

-Am 21
-Currently serving NS
-Have a Diploma in TOURISM AND RESORT MANAGEMENT (Ngee Ann Poly)
-No useful work experience (F&B last time)
-Cant enter Local Uni, grades nt good enough

I am finishing army soon, and I realized I have NO IDEA AT ALL what I should do after ORD.

I have enough savings to study. The only viable choice I can see is:

-Go UOL, study something useful like accountancy.
-Do business? I have NO EXPERIENCE, no ideas, no capital. This is probably out of the question.
-Friends advised me to study Software Engineering, b/c apparantly very good market for software engis now?

PLEASE advise me on what I should do. The realization that I have ZERO valuable skills is TERRIFYING.

keep a positive attitude, youth is your greatest asset, don't waste it. Most have no idea what to do in life, you just gotta accept this and start venturing out.. sitting down and thinking about it doesn't help.
