School Blues

Well, my plans, they must change. I was originally hoping to get accepted into a doctoral program at the University of Colorado at Denver. I knew they'd shut the program down for a year so they could reorganize, but I never expected that the reorganization would turn the program into something that is completely uninteresting and not applicable at all for me. This information wasn't posted in time for me to re-think schools I had previously rejected because their deadlines have all passed. what? To say that I am disappointed is a huge understatement. My heart was all set and ready to go to school in June. Now the deadlines have passed (the other programs weren't as appealing, anyway) and I am stuck. I am seriously considering asking the Mister if we could rent out the house and move to a city that has one of the programs I'm really, really excited about. When I floated the idea to him this afternoon he wasn't totally horrified, so that's a start.

I am trying to be positive about this and accept that the program at UCD wasn't for me. I am trying to look at this as an opportunity to find a program that would be a better fit. I am trying.

I'm really sorry to hear what happened with the program, but am glad to hear that you're trying to stay positive about it and think of creative solutions to deal with it. I don't believe that everything happens for a reason, but I do believe we have the power to do amazing things with whatever is thrown our way. Best of luck to you as you sort this one out.
