Hopefully Jubes doesn't burn down her room looking for me before you get this (could someone go check on her, please?) but to get straight to the point, I've decided to leave.
While I was in California with Lorna my acceptance letters from both MIT and Harvard arrived in the mail. Originally I sent in the applications as a sort of test to myself, just to see if I could do it, but in the last few weeks, it's become more and more apparent that perhaps I don't belong here quite as much as I thought I did. I was only waiting for some sort of 'sign' if you will to push me in one direction or the other.
And what's a better sign than getting kicked off trainee status, huh?
I haven't decided which school I'd like to attend yet, both have such promising offers, but I'm heading to Cambridge to decide. Both Harvard and MIT have excellent 'tryout' opportunities, if you will, but they also both end in the next couple of days, so I have to leave as soon as possible. As soon as possible just happens to be right this second; I'm a fast packer.
I wish you guys all the best, in spite of everything. And hey! Danielle, you finally got yourself a roomie. Be good to her, she's rather awesome, and just pile up my stuff in a corner or something; I'll be sending for whatever I didn't take in the next couple of days or whenever I get the time.
All my love,
