I'm currently a college freshman, and I might take a leave of absence. Don't get me wrong, it's not because I have bad grades or disciplinary problems---in fact I have near a 4.0 for this fall semester (A-s count as 3.8s...=/). I just think that it wouldn't be a bad idea to take an extended break from school, since by the looks of it, my spring semester is going to suck. I took some classes, which, although I adore, happen to carry heavy workloads---think around 10 hours a week for ONE of my classes. I don't want to suffer from burnout.
