I'm in! I received an email yesterday from Dr. Karen Cullen in the History Department of The University of the Highlands and Islands informing me that as soon as she finishes processing my application to UHI I can look forward to an offer of a place in their Scottish History Program beginning this coming September!! I know a lot of you assumed that I had already been accepted. Otherwise why would I have quit my job, sold everything I own, put my house on the market and left town already? Only an idiot would do that before she was sure, right? Wait a minute, why are you all pointing at me? I prefer to call it a leap of faith. Decide what you want in life, put it out to the fates and act on it. OK, OK, I know, but it worked this time didn't it? Whew! To be honest, I didn't really have a plan B. But, as of yesterday, no Plan B needed! I'm pretty excited. Last July I returned from Scotland with an increased desire to live there....someday. Something I've daydreamed about for several years. Now, seven months later, I have been accepted to my first choice school in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. Huzzah! There are still a few other wrinkles to iron out over the next six months but one thing at a time.
