Yesterday I got into my dream school….my other dream school. And what I thought would be a great and exciting thing is turning into the hardest decision in the world! SCAD or Parsons? I could fully go through both arguments on here, but that would take up about two pages of back and forth and would be quite boring to read, so I will just give you the main points that have popped into my head since I opened up that terrible/amazing letter in the mail:
I got into Parsons!
Wait- I got into Parsons.
Why do I feel weird right now?
Do I want to go to SCAD or Parsons?
They are both great schools.
But one has to be better.
Which one is better?
If only this were as easy as buying a school sweatshirt.
What if I make the wrong choice?
Is there a wrong choice?
Once I decide, there is no looking back.
How cold does it really get in New York in the winter?
Can I handle New York Winters?
Can I handle Savannah Summers?
Which one of these schools will get me a better job?
Don and Linda moving right before I leave does not make this decision any easier.
Maybe I should just get a job here and be a moocher for about 15 more years and then move out.
Since when is getting into your top two colleges a bad thing?
I’ve got great roommates lined up at SCAD. What if I have crappy roomies at Parsons?
There is no crab shack in New York.
There is no Insomnia in Savannah.
It feels like people I talk to are more excited about SCAD.
Am I reading too much into what people have said to me about SCAD?
Am I putting too much weight into what other people think?
I just want some more chocolate cake, but it’s all the way downstairs.
I’ve had too much chocolate cake today.
Will I fit in more in New York or Savannah?
Will I fit in anywhere?
Who cares about fitting in?
I care about fitting in.
Ok. Make a decision. Now.
What’s the first school that pops into your head…Now.
