A looming question of all students debating on the 'right' path. But the 'right' path is different to individuals! If you honestly feel like you need a break, then take it. If you are just unsure of what you want to pursue -- I encourage you to try community college. It's cheaper and will give you exposure to different classes while knocking out the first two years of general study! My personal experience was the following:
I went straight from high school to community college and worked full time... I wasn't challenged enough so I decided to change it up and joined the Reserves... I then changed my mind after serving a year or two in the reserves and put myself though college
I did a little of everything, so truly don't feel pressured! You can change your mind as you see fit, just make sure you finish whatever you start at some point! Good luck to you!
