    A thread to share your gap year stories. Did you travel? Did you care for turtles in Thailand? Did you sit on the couch and appreciate not having to study? Let's share the experiences!

    I didn't do as much during my gap year as I thought I would. I was hoping to get a volunteering or part time job, but that didn't happen in the end. I did learn to drive though, and I've gained a lot of confidence as a result. Additionally, I overcame my anxiety about going out and can now go out into town quite comfortably, which is a major improvement! Taking a gap year was definitely the right decision for me, because I'm now more confident, have more life experience and am generally in a better frame of mind for starting university
