As odd as this sounds, I'm kind of glad I'll be farther away as it will allow me to focus more on school work without feeling guilty for not spending time together.
but i can't help wanting to blurt out. well aren't ya gonna miss me
My husband and I will be separating when I go to law school this fall...I'll be in Ann Arbor, and he'll be in Berkeley. (I already finished my BA, but he went to junior college first, so he's got 2.5 years to go...)It's the right thing to do though--we'll both be better off. (He could have transferred to Michigan to complete his undergrad, but it would have cost 20k more per year due to being out of state, and even if we got suped up cell phones and mobile internet and visited each other every month, we couldn't possibly spend the 40k difference..)Think of it like being a military family: you do what you gotta do, because it's right. (On the upside, however, neither of us has increased odds of dying due to our separation...)
