hi! well, im having quite a probleam deciding something, and ive been thinking about it for a while now. My senior year of high school, me and a couple of friends are planning to go to Europe. my parents are heping me out and everything. but i was wondering, if it would be a smart idea to work in Europe for a year or two between college and the "real world". Would you guys advise that i finish college and go to europe, or just stick to the 2 and a 1/2 months ill get my senior year? please help me!!

a big part of that decision comes down to the $ factor. how are you paying for school? are you paying, or your parents? loans? if you are going to be a broke ass with debt when you get out of college(like me)then go overseas right when you get out of high school and never look back. if you have your families support on whatever decision you make, then, go overseas right when you get out of high school and never look back. if your parents are paying for your schooling and want you to go right after h.s., well then you have to make a tough choice. just remeber, it is a lot more difficult to take time off and check the world out after college. once you get tied up in the whole rat race out there it is tough as hell to get out of it. worst case scenario is that you could always do a semester abroad once you get some school time in. in the end, you have to do what you want to do. only you can live your life.
