feuervogel: (heart's desire)
After discussing it with the appropriate graduate coordinators, I am applying to the MA Linguistics program here to get a dual MA in (hopefully) 3 years. I *think* the application process is mostly a formality, because I'm already enrolled in the graduate school.

My thesis advisor thinks it's a good idea and is supportive (he's both German and Ling faculty, so he's on the committee to select grad students there, too).

This ... changes a lot of things. Like I don't want to stay in this apartment 2 more years; 20ish months was going to be pushing it as it is. So that means I need to look for a place. Fortunately, now is a good time to do that.

But the wrench: I'd like Ben to move down here temporarily, because 3 years is going to be sucktastic (especially once I hit the "oh god why am I doing this" phase and am drowning in trying to get 63 credit hours in 6 semesters) and Meyrin is getting old. So I may need a 2-bedroom (more space + office room) vs a 1-bedroom. But I don't qualify right now based on income, and he doesn't have steady income-income (capital gains don't count for that, only paychecks apparently), so he needs a job. Fortunately there are potential jobs here or in ATL with possible part-time remote work/wfh, so he may be doing that.

But moving suuuuuuucks so much.

The bigger wrench: we own a house. Do we pack our shit up and put most of it in storage (or sell some of it) and sell the house, or do we rent it out once our shit is moved elsewhere? We have a LOT of shit after living there for nearly 16 years. Also we need to replace the carpet and fix up some grody stuff from cat pee and toilet floods and fix some toilets...

But *flail* 2 MAs. Then I will be qualified for pretty much any PhD program anywhere (perhaps overqualified), should I decide to continue. I have a pretty cool MA thesis idea that I'm really excited about, so maybe I can carry that forward.
