I had gone straight to university after high school instead of taking a gap year?
This has got to be my biggest what if question.
If I hadn’t taken a gap year, I wouldn’t have worked in Banff and taken the plunge on living on my own. I wouldn’t have gone to Nicaragua and had my eyes opened. I might not have broken up with my first boyfriend. I might not have chosen my university because I wouldn’t have known I like the small school atmosphere.
I always think what if about this time in my life, but I don’t think I would go back and change my mind if I knew the future. I’ve come so far, learned so much about myself, and changed so much for the better that I think the year was worth it.
And, without the gap year, I wouldn’t be sitting here writing this blog post today. So thank goodness I did!
