Should I take a year off from school?

Well I'm currently a junior in high school, and I'll be graduating with an AA degree (Running Start program). I had panned that I would apply into another school to become a Respiratory Therapist after I had obtained an AA degree, but now I'm having second thoughts. As of right now, I feel I am living an unfulfilled and boring life. I mean since I've been in college I haven't been able to have a social life, do any extracurricular activities, or even have my first part-time job experience. I was thinking I'd get my AA degree, take a year off, and then go back to school again for my career of choice. Although I'm definitely not just going to be sitting on my butt the whole year! I'll probably be job hunting and putting some hours into community service, getting a taste of what it's like outside of my comfort zone. I don't know, maybe I'm just being stupid. Opinions?
