I had one of those moments today where something happened, I was alone, and I really wanted to remember so I could write about it on here. It happened while I was cooking dinner, but I can't remember. I do remember this though. In class, my professor showed us some videos to exercise our ability to predict and it was all 'fail-esque' videos. I was the only one laughing and I was laughing before he even hit play. It's rough being me.

Let me write this down. Maybe it will sink in and become a little more real.

-Obtain fluency in another language
-Get to live in another country for two years
-It's a governmental job, which increases my job security for the future
-Will look damn good on job/grad school applications
-Will be challenging. I love a challenge
-Gives me a plan for after graduation
-Isn't 9-5
-Will receive a stipend for future schooling

-I'm scared. If I stay, Stateside Leah will get to be around for engagements and marriages and nieces or nephews. I'll have security in relationships, put down roots, maybe have a dating relationship? Do I want to give that up? I can't not do this for a possible life. Nothing is guaranteed. But the increase in my heart rate is intimidating.
