Petra must wait…

I found out just a few hours ago that I’m not going to Petra.  I’m thoroughly depressed.  I had a gut feeling about this way back even when I was told I was going.  To take my mind off this news I decided to go for a walk outside since it was such a beautiful day.  As I walked the streets of Michigan Avenue, I realized I still had my camera inside my travel purse that I took to Prague.  I started to take pictures as if I were somewhere else, traveling.  Yes, Chicago is a beautiful city but because I’m used to it, I kind of forget that it is so beautiful.  I’m so very glad to be living here!

I decided this past Spring that I would like to apply for a Master of Liberal Arts program at the University of Chicago.  I would go part time, and I didn’t apply yet as I thought I was going to Petra in October.  Strangely so, last night I emailed the school asking them for an extention to the application deadline.  They replied back today telling me that I have until the end of this month, instead of the actual deadline which is two days from now.  So, I will frantically get all my materials needed to apply by the 31st of this month. 

Now, at the same time I will look into going somewhere else in case I can’t make the application deadline.  Of course, I would rather spend the $2,700.00 that is the cost of ONE damn class toward a trip!  But, I need to broaden my mind and I LOVE to learn so I really do want to go for the Master’s.  I wish I could be happy being still, not traveling, and not broadening my mind.  But I am who I am…

Chicago is not bad…
