First of all, I’d like to apologize for not writing in the past couple of months. So many events are taking place, so many emotional trails, and so many choices to think about. And one of these choices is if I should or should not go to London, England for graduate school.
Last month I was accepted to Middlesex University in London for their Marketing and Communications program, one of the best in the world. I could get my masters degree in one year for about twenty thousand dollars. Even if I stay in the states, I’ll have to spend about that amount of money regardless. London is looking more and more possible and desirable each and every day.
I have several concerns about London, and I fear my excitement might cloud my logical thought process. Besides the finances, there is my relationship, there is the fact that London is far from home, and there is the idea that I’ll be out of my comfort zone.
Then again, the summer I spent in London I knew it was my home and I knew it was the place I am meant to be. So honestly, the biggest fear I have about leaving is not coming back. Something tells me that if I do not have a reason to stay in the United States, and currently I lack one, then it seems more and more likely that I will not return.
I love my family and friends and my life in the States, but I KNOW London is my home. I KNOW it is where I am meant to be. And I KNOW I need to go.
I’m not sorry.
I need to go to London.
London is calling me… come home… come home. Jenny, come home.
