But that's only my impression based on my peers.

Some people do make a mistake as to what they want to do in life, and change their major or profession. Sometimes multiple times. I'm not sure a gap year is going to mitigate this.

Oh, and thank you, Yoda's mum.
Everyone-going-to-college seems to be losing favor over here. It's no longer a given, which is a good thing. Four-year college degrees are ridiculously expensive and too many people were saddling themselves with college loan debt and then not even getting jobs in their fields anyway.

Earn money for college. Figure out what to major in. Work a menial job so you'll appreciate college more. Travel. Lots of reasons. Eighteen is pretty young to always know what you want to do with your life. Sometimes it doesn't make sense to jump into college just because it's what everyone else is doing right after high school. I say, figure out what you want to do with your life, and THEN ask yourself what the best way to get there is. Might not be college at all.
Ha! Nice try, Rodent! Anyway, where's an admin? They're still spamming up the front page of the forum!
Hey, admins! A bunch of spam threads just showed up!

I was surprised at how much I love The Good Place. Yes, that end of season 1 was great, and I thought season 2 would therefore be a letdown, but it's staying solid for me.

And I find myself giggling through every episode of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The banter and the one-liners buried in there are gems, and I was bummed to find that season 4 seems to be only 6 episodes. I was ready to binge over the weekend and ran out of episodes!

I had a slightly similar thing happen here about a half hour ago... but I'm also experiencing a few other weird graphics card type issues this week, so I didn't think it was this site.

HA! The Bill Chill is one of my top ten favorite movies.
