    so, if this is your assessment, do you prefer the word 'hiatus' ?

    No. Whatever makes someone happy as long as it doesn't fuck me over is fine with me. I don't get it and think it's someone who is a drama queen but what do I know.

    I think it's quite civilized and reasonable. Sometimes essential.

    no. If I was to make a negative comment about it I can assure you it would be jealousy talking.

    in my opinion, a sabbatical can be a short & sweet get away . . . perhaps by means of playing yoga, prayer, cycling, running, walking. regular practice of such can be extremely health for one's body and mind.

    conversely, some may take an approach of 'fucking off' to mexico without notice or binge drinking with local co-eds. any enjoyment from this getaway is short lived and unsatisfying, of course.

    I think I'll change my resume to show that I took a sabbatical for about 9 months.

    No, but you have to have a real and stressful job to actually claim you took a sabbatical.

    I like to use the term "freelance work" to describe the last four years I've spent without a job and not being in school.
