Drinking the Koolaid

I'm in guys! Will most likely be back in school this fall. After painful waiting on admissions day, I finally got the e-mail at 5pm. Torture I tell you!! Ironically, as I was about to click on the link to learn my fate, a colleague walked into my office!! Talk about bad timing. He had all frigging day, but no he had to choose this very second. I was dying of anxiety as he rambled on *#@*#*@#

Anyway, I spent the past few weeks contemplating my decision. And after attending admissions weekend, I'm almost convinced that I will be making the right choice. The exhorbitant tuition will be well spent and the returns will be invaluable. Gosh listen to me!! I've really downed the poisoned koolaid! But I admit, part of the appeal is that I get to leave my job and school seems fun ... all the trips around the world <- wait I mean I will learn alot and this will help with my career and marketability.

Oh look, and to show how badly they want my 80k, they also sent a "care" package with a bumper sticker, map, binder, name card wallet complete with name cards ...etc.

ok no way I am ruining my car with that geeky sticker. no wait I probably have to sell my car and throw in a corgi to pay for school :p but my dad would be real proud and want the sticker for his car so all is not lost. The name cards were also seriously weird ... what does one do with that?
