My dad ROCKS!

So I found out 2 days ago that my school will NOT be continuing the French program next year - not enough budget $, yada yada yada. They made the best decision they knew how, and I don't blame them for it, and I'm not bitter. Honest honest.

In fact, it's really kind of an exciting feeling! Here is how my dad put it:
Wow! What a great opportunity to design your life!

Freshly minted masters, lotsa experience, no debts, no anchors, an income stream for some months yet, positive support from your previous employer!

99.9% of the population would kill to be in your shoes!

And hey - he's right!! So...where should I go?????

As much fun as it would be for you to stay in Utah with all of us, I think you totally pursue that Ph.D. opportunity that was presented to you in Wisconsin. What an incredible opportunity that would be, Margaret!

It would totally suck to see you go, but have you heard anything from Wisconsin?

Where do you want to go? The world is your cupcake, or oyster, or whatever you want it to be.

go on a river rafting trip down the amazon. After you get back from france, of course.

And send me lots of pictures so that I can drool and be insanely jealous. Yes, anchors can be cute sometimes, but there is that odd moment where I wish I could be like you-- free to drift for a bit, no strings attached, no guilt because you've worked hard and have earned a rest and a moment to explore....
