I bade farewell to the Guinea Pigs yesterday morning. I tucked them into their cardboard boxes, and along with all of their supplies, handed them off to be delivered to a woman who seems to be a Guinea Pig expert and who rescues these little furry creatures.
I gave them up because I will be traveling to another state where I have been accepted into a university for the purpose of completing my bachelor’s degree.
This is not a state that I am familiar with, as I have never had a reason to visit it. This university, however, offers classes in all of my most ardent interests and I am beyond thrilled at the prospect of studying there.
I had previously been considered for a full scholarship at a prestigious “Hidden Ivy League” college, but I found the tiny town that it was located in stifling, and the general student body to be limited in experience and diversity. This new academic institution is located in a larger metropolitan area, and seems to offer a more diverse student population. I feel a great sense of peace at stepping out into this new direction.
I leave within two weeks to visit and explore this new area. If all of the chips fall into the proper bag, within two months, I shall be relocating.
