A few days ago, I learned of a job opportunity out of state starting next week, which, in order to take, I’d have to give up seeing four awesome concerts and going to Chicago to visit Elyse, as well as causing a headache for someone I respect a great deal by quitting my weekend teaching job. I’d also have to kiss goodbye the idea of participating in NaNoWriMo, which I was really looking forward to. In the end, I decided to take the job. It was just too good an opportunity to pass up when I was looking at not having work here at home until April.
So Sunday morning, my friend Lisa and I hit the road for St. Louis. I’m totally bummed about missing all those shows (Ben Folds, They Might be Giants, Jonathan Coulton/Paul and Storm, and TubRing), and I’m gonna miss the hell out of Tim3P0. The upside is that I get to hang with Pamela Gay and DJ Grothe and all the other St. Louis area skeptics, not to mention I’ll be there for Skepticon II to say a proper goodbye to Rebecca. All things considered, I think it’s the right decision.
What is a difficult decision that you’ve had to make? Do you think, in hindsight, that you made the right choice?
