Love… endures all things.
1 Cor. 13:7
Either “lonely” or “perseverance.” Only a few weeks have elapsed, but I’d swear that I have aged ten years. For lonely, I count my close Clark friends a completely loss: I may yet see the people, but the closeness has gone. I am a shadow on the wall, a living doorstop, an echo. For perseverance, of course, I have this: the loss of Jess as a close friend, the brief removal of my husband, and the struggle in classes. (Pudd’nhead!) I still have not thought of anything I like about Clark. However, this has been suggested to me as an alternate to either pausing my education or sticking with my rather uninspiring English major: the WPI Technical Communications major. It would be my third change of majors in three years, for it would go into effect next year. What are the pros and cons? I would go to WPI, suffer their gruelling 7 week schedule, pay more than I do for Clark – probably substantially more, since I doubt WPI would be as generous with me as Clark was. I would take probably an additional year of college, and that means three years in Worcester when the idea of two is enough to make a body weep. On the other hand, I would get a major more practical than English, for the desire for technical writers is great; this would, as Ian said, be an “average” between a Bio major and English major; though we would have to rent the apartment longer, its general situation would be much handier for both of us; and Ian added that we would get to see each other during the day. As it is, I basically “go off to work,” and we reconvene in the evenings. Unless Ian is gallavanting off in the British Isles instead. So? If I don’t switch, I don’t know if I will want to reenroll at Clark next year. Finishing college once in Washington won’t be any easier than it would be to “simply” transfer to WPI here. Frankly, I’m leaning towards applying to WPI as a transfer student, anyways. I’m a smart girl – how could they turn me down?! If I get accepted, then I guess I really would have a choice on my hands.
