Where In the World…

My current grad school decision looks like this:

grad school

I mean, really?!

Luckily (well, sort of), I don’t just get to pick where I’d like to jet off to and roll with that.  There are program requirements and differences in class offerings to consider… and, of course, the whole “paying for your education” deal.  Once I have a chance to really sit down and hash out all those factors, the decision will most likely be a little clearer for me.  Right now, though, it’s overwhelming.

If anyone would like to knock me out, make the decision for me, and wake me back up, that option is sounding really great right now.  Also, as a quick disclaimer, I am being very facetious about this whole situation because I don’t know how else to respond right now – I know this is not a bad problem to have and I am truly grateful for each of the options I have.



A little PostSecret inspiration that came right at the moment I needed it.  Tina and Amy ended up okay!  I’ll probably be fine.

  1. Probably shmrobably. You’ve got this girl! I am so proud of you and can’t wait to see the amazing things you accomplish!

    1. Ahh I know!! I have to keep reminding myself to focus on the schools and programs and not just choose based on location. It’s so tempting!

  2. Hi Julie! I just saw your comment on pbfingers London recap actually, so I stopped by! 🙂 I was in this EXACT same dilemma (I chose London – and met my now-husband!), but the advice I give all my friends when they are struggling with grad school choices is this: it honestly is about what you make it…You’ll succeed ANYWHERE as long as you put the work in! haha Just my two cents, but good luck!! (and choose London hehe) 😉

    If you have any questions about potentially moving to London, feel free to shoot me an email… I vividly remember agonizing over the tiniest details when it came down to making my decision!

    1. Hi Tara! That is so sweet of you – thanks for popping over! A lot has gone on in the past few days since I wrote this post and I’m actually pretty sure I’ll be choosing London now 🙂 I’d love to hear your advice and insight on moving there, though, since I’ll be going sight-unseen. What is your email address? I can’t see it from your comment. Thank you again, what a great connection!

  3. Julie – awesome! Please email me!! taraetobin@gmail.com 🙂 Can’t wait to hear from you – and its always nice to make connections before you move somewhere! My closest friend from grad school and I actually met online (seems so weird to say it that way…? haha) when we were looking for housing so we used to joke to people that we met on match.com/friendship hahah

    1. Thanks, Tara!! I will definitely shoot you an email soon – and oh boy, do I have a hilarious story for you regarding your match.com situation 🙂
