A young lady with the Twitter handle @taoleighgoffe has taken to Twitter to express regret over finishing her PhD at the age of 26.

The American lady said she regrets finishing her PhD at 26, adding that people should take time off between graduate school and undergraduate school.

According to her, graduate school is not the safety net people think it is.

She wrote: "I finished my PhD at 26. I regret this. Take time off between grad school and undergrad. Live your life. Defer, read, work, explore, party, save, make art, sleep.

"Don’t rush. Grad school is not the safety net you think it is. The degree will be there when you’re done. Enjoy life!"
