Adjusting to the gap year lifestyle

Life will be much different during your gap year.  Living situations, spending, free time, and being around different people are exciting and sometimes troublesome adjustments to make.  You might have to share a room or somewhere to live, be more frugal with spending, spend more time cooking than eating out, and be more social than usual.  These are all great learning experiences, regardless of what happens.  City Year added posts to  their blog about what life is like for some members who moved to Chicago to serve for a full year.  Check out their suggestions and be sure to look at other websites and resources for more first-hand stories of what a gap year can be like.
