So currently I'm enrolled in college, in my 3rd year (but credit-wise I'm 6 credits short of being a junior). I would like to finish college on time, but at the same time, I want to take it slow. I am considering taking next term off (winter term) and living in Santa Ana, CA for the term (I live in Oregon now). I'm not sure if I would take a couple courses while I'm down there, but I would for sure be working (could anyone recommend any community colleges/universities down there?). I would be going down with my boyfriend and we would be living in his grandparents house which is currently vacant. I have some family nearby (about an hour away in Thousand Oaks) so we wouldn't be completely isolated. I also love the Los Angeles area, I was born there and lived there for a few years, and my family and I go back and visit about once a year. Anyways, the idea is still in the consideration process. But I'm just wondering if anyone else has done anything like this, or if anyone has any advice whatsoever! Thanks!
