Doing homework at the moment and I have nothing to procrastinate with, so come and chat with me.
I'm currently thinking about taking a break from school, probably only a semester, to go live in France with my sister (who will be studying there next year). Do you guys think I should do it, or is school more important anyway ? I do plan on going back to school when I get back as I only have a year left of studies before getting to University.
I think it will be harder to travel while I'll be in University, but I'm still unsure if it's a great idea to stop school for a while, as I may be lazy to go back lol.
I thought you meant chat as in TC. I was like WHOA CLRAIK TC. Been montthzzzzzzzzz
Jokes aside, there is no wrong choice in your situation, but it is situational:
If you're killing school now and are confident you can maintain it when you return, why not?
If your grades are shaky, I wouldn't. Some Uni registrars will question why you took a break + had bad grades, won't look good in admissions.
Depending on your province, it may/may not be tricky to take a break from school (high school?).
Where I went, it was pretty rigid; very few people could officially cut school. You'd need a good reason to, like getting shot or something.
If you take a break now, when you return, you'll be a semester/year behind your friends.
Unless you're cool with being a loner or have buddies in the grade under you, consider that.
Since University (in Canada at least) officially runs from September - April, you'll have 4 months anyways to do whatever (unless you work/volunteer/take spring+summer classes, etc.), like travel.
Better months, less stress, everything still on schedule.
Thus I think it'd be easier to travel while in Uni, just not during your studies.

And I don't have any real friends anymore since they got jealous and whatsoever last year, so I don't care at all being a year behind them. It would actually be quite better.
Don't run around Paris yelling 'TABARNAK!' if you know what's good for you.
I don't even say it here, so no worries haha.
And poutine's so good. It's a shame I can't eat cheese.
