The choice to take a year off, smack bam in the middle of a full year of studies, my Master's degree nonetheless wasn't easy or even pre-empted. But it was a decision I had to make when I was pushed to the brink of my patience. Some would call me crazy for doing that. You must be wondering, a blog should start with an introduction of sorts. But I have never been one for introductions. In fact, I am very bad at them. I am not trying to be arrogant. My name won't matter to you unless I have met you and if I have and you're close enough, you can recognise me from the first sentence.
