- Wedding: February 2013
Im sorry. I just need to gush. So I am finishing up my bachelor’s degree next April and we are getting married in May. Before we started dating, my dream had always been to go and get my PhD but the longer we were together, the more I realized it was probably just a pipe dream, not because he wanted to stop me, but just because it would require him to leave his stable, well-paying job for me to go and get a PhD that will likely never get me a job.
Today I was informed that my professors and the Department of Philosophy of my university gave me an award for the kind of philosophy I love doing. I didn’t apply for it or anything, one of my professors nominated me and the department agreed. This is the kind of award that pretty much ensures my admission to a fully-funded masters/PhD program.
I texted my fiance and told him about the award. When we got on the phone tonight, the first thing he said to me was, “Hey smarty-pants, so where are you going to go for your master’s degree?”
Without me asking, he was just more than happy to give up his job and move far away to make my dream come true. He is wonderful and I am so blessed to be able to marry him.
