A few days back someone asked me what is it that I like about this country (the US). I thought and thought and thought...for about 5 minutes and said with uncertainty in my voice "my daughter's school" and that is all I could think of. That person kept looking at me in surprise and it was kind of embarrassing. I came home and asked my husband the same question. He said he likes his school. So that says it all....we came here for my husbands PHD. He is now working on his dissertation. I am working on my portfolio to start my MFA. Lets see if I do it here or we go back home and I do it at NCA. Everything is so uncertain right now... and the curiosity of what will happen is killing this fat cat!.
