Taking time off, if you can afford to, is fine, your whole life doesn't need to be the rat race, but just remember that it's best to get back on the saddle and start rebuilding your savings. If you keep going, you will run out of money and nothing good comes of that. You want that money as a nest egg for when you're old. In the meantime, you should look into starting a business for yourself. I graduated with an English degree in 2012, I thought I was going to be a teacher. I was a teacher, actually, for a year, and I hated every second of it. Instead, I bought a shitty box truck, a grill, a fridge and a fryer, started a food truck and have been slinging burgers to bar flies and construction workers ever since. I make good money, high profit margins, and I work when I want to, and I don't work when I don't want to. I was already 6 months into a vacation when covid hit my state and we locked down, and I just kept the vacation rolling until earlier this year. I don't know what I'm getting at, but I could have just said fuck it and retired before I turn 30, and deal with running out of cash when I'm 50, but a man needs to work, he needs something to do. I drove my old lady crazy, cleaning shit that didn't need to be cleaned, fixing shit that didn't need to be fixed (until I tried to fix it), picking up and putting down new hobbies and fitness dad's left and right, but really I just needed to grill some burgers and make some cash.
