Mayim: I come from an immigrant family, where going to college is one of the most important things you can do, so I always wanted to go to college. I was two years out of high school when Blossom ended, so I was ready. Also, to be on a sitcom in 1994 was not a popular way to have an acting career. Offers for movie and stage roles didn't come pouring out. So, unless I wanted to do another sitcom, I needed to take a break.
