Just doing a drive by post, will read stuff at lunch time. Mia is at the vet's, likely looking at surgery today or tomorrow (her stomach is empty enough, she probably would be safe to operate on today). Poor girl. Likely an obstruction. SHe was good Friday night, but since tghen hasn't kept food down, and has puked up water, but she's hydrated, which is a good sign (unlike many/most cats, mine are good about drinking water).

Ok, you guys, I need some thoughts.

I am NOT bragging or anything, but I got accepted to a post-grad program at Princeton. I can defer it for a year, which I will need to do, but I don't know if I should accept it or not.

I mean...it's PRINCETON (!!!) but it would mean a cross-country move and several years in NJ which I never really thought about because I never thought they would accept me.

There are no financial issues, just the idea of moving for several years, oh and also what if I can't "cut" it? FWIW I can do post-grad work here too, but it's "Ivy league" so I think that's worth some serious thought.

Defer it for a year. You need this to settle in your brain. It's not a permanent move and being in another part of the country, you might really enjoy soaking that up when it comes time. Now you're probably just freaked out.

BTW, Congrats! Awesome!

I think your crazy if you turn it down.
Seattle is just a piece of dirt, it will be then when you want to go back.

Do what I did, make the move and tell yourself you will give it a year. If it dont work out, not much time lost.

It would be hard for me to leave the North West if I lived there, and NJ would never be a place I would actually want to live in, but I don't think that's an opportunity you turn down. Suck it up for a few years and then write your ticket...

CONGRATS!!! That is so phenomenal! I think you should ABSOLUTELY do it! This is a "once in a lifetime" and can relaly mean a lot for your future! Plus, even though it's NJ, it's a new experience and you'd be close to one of the greatest cities on earth (NY) while still having access to beaches, the country, the mountains, etc.

Plus, it's PRINCETON!!!!!!!!!! Woo hoo!!!

The status quo is always easier. Wondering "What if...?" sucks. If you got accepted, you are capable, so screw the "What if I can't...?" stuff. At worst, you go and try it and you just don't like it. At least you found out. And you had a new experience. And you meet some new people. And who the heck knows what else could happen. And isn't that part of the fun?

You also need to make yourself a stranger to such thoughts. Don't ever doubt yourself.

Congrats!!!!

Why wouldn't you go for it? The Princeton area is culture-rich, close to Philly if you need some city life, far enough from the city that you never have to deal with it if you don't want to. NJ has great food, four seasons and people who drop everything to help their neighbors when hurricanes hit.

You are a rock star and you can handle anything that comes your way, if you want to.:)

This is the cat who spent a week in the vet hospital last year, and they had to *sew* her feeding tube to the top of her nose b/c she kept pulling it out... and she ripped THAT out and has a scar on her nose from it.

So while she would never, ever claw or bite anybody for any reason (even when I"m doing something she hates, she will use her paw to try to push me away, but the claws do not come out), she is going to give them a run for their (my) money.

I wouldn't blame someone 10 years older than that for not knowing her name.

She was pretty sick for years, so I'm glad her pain/suffering are over.
