Why I take a GAB YEAR + my GOALS
~ That’s where I am going to dedicate this year to. To learning new things! Whether that’s about myself, the world or anything else!
I graduated from my High School last june. The ‘level’ I did is called VWO and it means pre-university secondary education. There are so many studies that I could do. Yes, I love nature, yet studying biology doesn’t interest me. I love learning new things, but I also love exploring myself and this world. It doesn’t sound attractive to study 5 years just to have to work at a office job to pay back your loan. On top of that you are more likely to work for big coorporations and/or the government. Both aren’t my best friends.
I am blessed and I realize that I have first world problems.
People in other places in the world would love to be able to go study psychology or law. I know. But I also know myself. I know what makes me happy and those 6 years of studying made me realize that I don’t love studying in school. That doesn’t mean I don’t like learning new things, I love it!
That’s where I am going to dedicate this year to. To learning new things! Whether that’s about myself, the world or anything else!
