Terence has taken up Grad school from the ground running. He wakes up early and stays up late. It’s exhausting and I can see it. I have faith that God will get him through this and he’ll do very well. I just feel like we hardly ever get to see each other these days and find myself counting down the days until when I can go home to AR again. Is that wrong? I mean I like it here, it’s just not the same and I really don’t have any friends here.
Terence is leaving for Atlanta next month for a conference and I was thinking of going home then too. Amongst all the school loans, paperwork, meetings, interviews, “socializing” they have to do there really isn’t much downtime. They don’t mess around with this program. Everything they do costs money, on top of all the tuition fees! It’s crazy I tell you! We bought the new laptop, then we needed new software, now it’s business suits, shirts, ties, shoes, etc. for interviews because they want you to have a certain “image”. Even a certain brand of stationary to write thank you notes on (which wasn’t cheap!) I understand all that is how you represent yourself, but I guess they just expect American college students to just go into debt doing all of this? Before this adventure Terence and I had NO debt and were financially free and had money in savings and investments. With the way the economy is going though, well….. that doesn’t make anyone feel secure does it?
On another note….so glad tomorrow is Friday. I’ve been sooooo bad this week and I’ve had a Starbucks EVERY SINGLE DAY this week! I may need to enquire about a Starbucks anonymous meeting sometime, because this is getting out of control.
These are T’s new business cards he can pass out. Hopeful he’ll pass a LOT of them out..he..he…he.. because the more he can network the better jobs he’ll get! And as soon as he gets himself a job then we can start our “baby” plans again!!!! Oh no, I have not forgotten about our plans, I’m just leaving it in God’s hands for now! 🙂
I’m off to bed! Sweet Dreams!
