I'm a college senior who will receive my bachelor's degree in May 2013, and have a flexible schedule before commencing with full-time work. I'm met with a rather difficult question: how long to take off and what will I do with this time?
Here is what I do have: intention to spend some time with family, an interest in travel (though no idea where), inklings of entrepreneurial ideas (but wary of its risks), a goal to ultimately do good with my life. I have saved diligently, and have the financial means to travel, invest - to entertain a number of activities.
Concrete answers encouraged, preferably for those who are able to look back 10+ years and say, "I wish I did that back then."
Potentials: start an idea (worried about time constraint), roadtrip/backpacking (location recommendations welcome!), learning Chinese through-and-through...
