Not Even a Nibble of the Big Apple

I lead a tortured existence. Really, I do. So I got into a top school that I wanted to get into but it's so incredibly expensive and located in one of *the* most expensive areas in the U.S.: Manhattan. Now, mind you, I have been wanting to study at this school for the longest time and live in Manhattan for the longest time, and I'm getting exactly what I want, but I'd have huge, outrageous, phenomenal amounts of debt when I graduate from grad school and I'd be entering a field where you could potentially make a lot of money, but it's very rare. I'd have to be extremely lucky, make really good connections, and basically be in the right place at the right time while trying to get myself through school.

It's strange...I never thought I'd actually have to make this decision because I didn't think I'd get into such a competitive school. But here I am, having to actually think about this, and the sad reality is that it probably won't happen because I can't justify putting myself in that much debt when graduating from a much less known school with the same degree type is just as good and acceptable because in this field, employers don't really look at the school name; they look at mainly your experience and internships.

Then again, I could be in NYC, meet the man of my dreams who happens to be fabulously rich and could afford to put me through school or pay off my outrageous debt. Ahhhh, unrealistic, I know, but hey, a girl can dream, right? I can't help it...I have this sick fascinating with NYC and I feel so pulled to that city every time I visit. I'm meant to live there for some period of my life...I know it.

The heart is the only broken instrument that works


The greatest ironies of life: having the right person at the wrong time, having the wrong person when the time is right, and finding out that you love someone after that person walks out of your sight...

Warning Signs He's About to Bail

I created this list based on past experiences...enjoy and feel free to comment and/or add your own.

1. He meets many of your friends, but he has yet to introduce you to any of his.

2. He makes no mention of you to his family. In other words, they have no idea you exist.

3. His daily phone calls start getting replaced by text messages, if even that.

4. When you suggest an activity to do in the future, he neither confirms wanting to do it or denies being to do it (i.e., relationship limbo)

5. Five minutes after he calls you and leaves a voice mail, you call back to find that his phone has been turned off.

6. He can only talk at very specific times throughout the day that somehow always correspond to when you're busy.

7. He flakes on plans, repeatedly.

8. He can't make up his mind on when to hang out.

9. He suddenly becomes very busy.

10. He doesn't answer specifics when you ask him how his day was-- he speaks of everything in general terms so you feel like you're in the dark.

11. He stops telling you his future plans.

12. He's not as talkative as usual.

13. He can't have a conversation for more than 10 minutes without telling you he'll have to call you back.

14. He tells you that he'll call back in 10 minutes and that turns into 3 hours instead.

15. Your weekly date night vanishes-- he doesn't seem to want to hang out anymore like routine.
