In some people’s minds, they see schooling as something that has to be done consecutively. Year after year they attend school until it is time to graduate. For these people this is the plan of action that makes the most sense for them.
Some, on the other hand, feel that it is best to take some time off and explore the world or embark on other endeavors that appeal to them. YHM interviews recent returned student Kristee Rosa and asks her the benefits of taking time off before returning to school.
For me, it was a very easy decision to take some time off. I attended school for two years and found myself growing bored and unmotivated in my studies.
I took time off from schooling to work, travel, and give my brain time to relax. When it was time to go back to school, I realized that I appreciated the idea of getting an education so much more.
Giving myself that break ensured that I wasn’t burnt out and stressed about the workload that I would possibly be getting. Taking time off was the greatest choice I could have made for myself. I am happy to be back at school and continuing my education.
