It's going to be very weird not working, especially knowing that I'm borrowing $$ to make up for me not doing so. I orginially was accepted to the PT program at Mason so I could work, but after thinking about it and talking it over with my wife, we decided that it would be best to focus on school and family (I have two young children) rather than school, family, and work. Not to mention we'll be in a brand new place, 3000 miles away from home and extended family. It just wasn't going to be worth it. Fortunately, I was able to move to the FT program and depending on how things go, I may see about getting a job in the library or something to help with spending money. We'll see.
