I have a pretty awesome family, and I'll tell you why. I have been in school for a long time. I never took a break between high school and College, just went straight into it. I was always given the impression that if you don't go right away and you take a break you will never go back. Well I'm not a straight A student but I have always made good grades in school. This past semester has had me pulling my hair out. I haven't been doing well, I really suck at languages. I'm taking Spanish 2 and I need it to graduate but it's not agreeing with me so to speak.
I am a stressful person, I care about what everyone thinks. I get so on edge I have panic attacks and this has only started happen this past year so... I decided I want to take a break, one semester off to just relax and think seriously about where I want my life to go.
and my family has my back, they all think it's a good idea mainly because I think they have seen truly how stressed out and sick i've become over this whole year. I have learn, actually through blogger and the lovely people I've met on here that taking a break isn't a bad thing, it doesn't mean your weak, it just means that I need to slow down and evaluate what it is I want to do and if i'm doing what i need to achieve it.
When I got the okay from everyone I just felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders, I felt free...I felt happy. I realized just how much I really wanted and needed this break.
