Torn

A phenomenal residency in a place I don't really want to live.
A good residency in a city I love.

My inner child rocking in the corner in the fetal position.

Off to get ready for my next interview.

(Note to self: Save up some money as, when this is all over, you will clearly need therapy and probably medication. Powerful medication. The anti-psychotics they normally reserve for wildebeests and elephants.)

phenomenal is pretty compelling, considering residency isn't forever
and then after, you can live & work wherever you want.

and i'd offered to buy you that cup of coffee if your residency happened to be around here, but, honestly, i don't want you thinking i'm stalking you or anything. i just have my reasons to be publicly anonymous, too. so, forget the coffee part and good luck whatever you choose!

Depends on the city. If it is in a city that you truly can't stand...ugh.

Tough.

But, if it is in a city that is merely a pain in the ass, take it.

I took Baltimore and it wasn't so bad.

I'd opt for the good residency in the city you love. There are few things worse than being in a place that makes you miserable. Trust me, I'm there.

I think that good residency in a city you love. I agree with Susan. Nothing worse than being in a place you hate.
Good luck with the anti-p's for a wildebeest - you do have such a wonderful turn of phrase little one.

This made me laugh hard hun. Hang in there.
I think I'll make you one of my competition winners.

I haven't decided yet, Amanda. I still have a bit more interviewing to do in January. This was just a snapshot of my most recent big life decision-related psychotic break.
