...go see Pagliacci?

Good joke. Everybody laugh.

In all seriousness, I'm feeling a bit better now. Got a text message from someone who made me feel less alone.
Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says "But Doctor...I am Pagliacci." Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.

The GOOD: I should be getting a formal offer of a fellowship from Ireland shortly (according to an email I received today)... 12000euro/yr to do astrophysics research! :D :D :D

The BAD: I spent the last two weeks (err... perhaps more like two months :P hard to say) getting used the idea that I was going to France! XD

The LIKEWISE BAD: I don't want to start unraveling/unwinding anything with the program in France until I have the offer and details but they haven't sent it yet... :-\


The GOOD: heh... at least I'm not worrying... I thought a dilemma was a choice between two BAD options... what's a choice between two GOOD options?? XD XD

The GOOD: I'm 95% sure I have a job for this summer
The GOOD: Graduation is this Friday and then I'm 100% done with high school
The GOOD: I have a fantastic boyfriend I can really see myself staying with
The BAD: It's really stressful to think of trying to stay together from 2000 miles away for four years
The BAD: The job I (probably) have would force me to move about an hour away, and work until 7PM Monday-Friday, which would pretty much eliminate any time spent together on weekdays
The GOOD: The job starts after we get to spend a week together in the Keys with his aunt.

The GOOD: I have some details for Ireland.
The BAD: I lack details about what fees exactly I'd be expected to pay...
The LIKEWISE BAD: so, there are these things called "economic fees"... which are what non-EU students pay, but it's unclear if these are somehow folded into the course tuition or not...

The HRMM: the actual difference between say EU fees and non-EU fees (on their website) is in sort of a gray area... I could afford maybe 2 years without taking out a loan... then there's the question of whether or not I could save up some from the stipend that they'd be giving me or should I just plan on going into debt...

The SAD: ...my head hurts when thinking about speculative things... :(

oh...also

The BAD: my potential supervisor has been incommunicado for the last few days or so... :-\
