Higher education.

As my senior year gets closer and closer, conversations about college are becoming more and more frequent. People ask me what I want to do, and everybody is so excited for me to go.
The thing is, I'm not sure I want to go. I've got nothing against it, I just don't think I'm ready, mentally, financially, and emotionally.
What I really want to do is take a year off to travel alone. I'm tired of answering to people and letting them carve out paths for me. I want to find my own way for once.
So, what will it be? Going for higher education to get a good job and give my family more bragging rights? Or take chances, and find myself for once?
