just saw your post about gap years, for me it was honestly one of the best decisions i've made, felt so much more ready to leave home & you have so much time to go to uni/w/eva you want to do anyway! it's not unusual for people to have a gap year before uni so there's plenty of people your age or older. also in my experience the people i've met that took a gap year were more mature and focused, just make sure if you do have a year out you have plans so you don't get bored! hope this helped :-)
Thank you so much, this really helped. I am pretty definite that I want to take one I hope it’s as enjoyable as yours was!
I am taking a gap year now and I hate it. All of my friends are in school and I have nothing else to focus on, besides my job, but I get pretty lonely. And everyone's just in school or doing school work and I don't have much of anything to do. Now I just feel behind in life in general and like I'm just wasting my time. I personally don't recommend it unless you have plans to fill the time or traveling to do.
Gaaaah this is my main fear :( I have a couple friends who are taking one but the rest will be going next September. I don’t want to be bored or lonely
Thank you for sharing xx
