Gap Year? I Had a Gap Midlife

A Year Spent Wisely:

Thank $DEITY the chimp transferred all that wealth from the middle class to the Republican elite. Otherwise, this business about choosing how to vacation during the "gap year" might be more limited than it is today.

"Students seem to be getting more creative with their gap-year plans. An incoming Wellesley College student will intern with a pastry chef at a famous California restaurant this year; a Penn student will volunteer in Vietnam. Reardon recalled a student who worked as a beekeeper and shepherd in France.

Kristel Keegan, who plans to attend Cornell University, will spend next year teaching in Costa Rica, working as a ski instructor in Colorado and then perhaps working in New Zealand or South Africa."
