Decisions decisions!

Good news... I got into a Masters program at Yale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Alhamdulilah

Except, Mr. F can't leave his job to come with me and I don't want to go alone... I also want to spend all the time I can with baby and hopefully Inshalah be a good mom... but, I also don't want to look back at this time 20 years later and regret not having gone to grad school... And let's be honest, a part of me has gotten used to the idea of being back in my hometown with parents, grandparents and cousins close by and ideally, I'd want baby to have that kind of environment to grow up in. Yes, Pakistan has its issues but it also has a lot of comforts that we take for granted...

Tough decision :-S


  1. tough indeed!!

    but getting into Yale is awesome mashAllah!! Congratulations..

    try an istekhara :)

  2. glad you are trying to find a way to work it out as opposed to completely dismissing it because of baby or toughness of the situation. i think you will be a great mom no matter what you decide :) wish you well!

  3. :) Glad hearing this good news ! Hope you make your way the way you want it ! All my prayers are with you . AMEEN

  4. Congrats :). Amazing news. But since baby is on the way and Mr. F has his job here, why can't you postpone grad school for later. If you got into Yale now, you can easilyyyy get in later :). But baby's first year is lol only going to come ONCE yeah? :)

    Just a thought. Your decision of course, and yeah, really tough. Best of luck :s.
