Now I'm not sure where I am going yet. I applied to two places for health sciences which will permit me to have a career in health care. However, that program is rather intensive. It's not really that bad at one of the public Cegeps I applied to, but at the other private Cegep, the program is apparently excellent and they prepare you extremely well, but it's apparently hell. I am tempted to take the easy Cegep, but I have a gut feeling I should go to the harder one because I'll get a better outcome in the end (a.k.a I'll be much more prepared for uni).
My family thinks though I should stop riding. Take a break so I can concentrate on my studies. I CAN'T THOUGH. Riding is my only physical activity/hobby (beside occasionally playing music) and I'd go crazy if I stopped completely for a year. I also know my grades would plunder, because the reason I get such high marks now are because of riding. I was unable to concentrate in school before, now I can.
I doubt I'll stop completely, maybe I won't have as much time to ride (although I don't see how I could ride less often as I don't ride very often as it is), but what did you do when you were my age? Did you take a break? Did you find time?
I personally hope I can find time. If it means I won't be able to go to parties very often, so be it.
