I’ve been in a pensive mood for the last few days. I can’t decide which offer to accept for graduate school. I’ve been distracting myself by watching Merlin. Needless to say, I’ve watched a lot of episodes of Merlin. I’m definitely addicted. I love the themes of destiny, friendship, and sacrifice. They seem oddly appropriate for the decision I have to make.
I’ve been trying to find an excuse to return to the Canadian city where I went to graduate school (the first time) ever since I left there three years ago. I now have the opportunity I was looking for. On the other hand, the school which accepted me to their Ph.D. program is offering a very tempting fellowship. The prestigious fellowship they are offering me is only given to one or two people a year, so I’m basically their top choice. They want me bad.
No matter what decision I choose, I will be both accepting and rejecting a great opportunity. The question is which opportunity I am more willing to live without.
