Tomorrow, I am taking my daughter to the orientation weekend at her university, which is 4 hours away from us. In about a month and a half, she will be off at school as a freshman. I can’t really think about it without bawling like a baby. She almost chickened out a couple of weeks ago, and I persuaded her that she owes it to herself to go and have the amazing experience of being a freshman away at school. And I totally believe it, but all the same, it is going to break my heart when she leaves.
A huge part of my life is ending, a huge part of hers is beginning. Bittersweet does not even begin to describe it.

Don’t worry, Trouble, she’ll be back. They never really leave. And with this economy, she’ll probably move back in after school. I hope she’ll be studying something that will be worth all the expense.

Thanks, dude. She’s saying biomedical engineering or physical therapy. Still making up her mind, but something medical/technical.

Biomedical engineering sounds promising. Physical therapy perhaps not so much. Good luck!
>Physical therapy perhaps not so much.<
Why do you say that?
With the cost of a college degree being what it is these days, I question the wisdom of taking on huge amounts of debt for a career that might make it extremely difficult to pay off that debt.
That said, I must take back what I wrote about physical therapy. It actually appears to pay better than “biomechanical engineering technician” National average salary range after the first few years on the job shows $50k-$75k for PTs, but only $34k-$50k for BETs. Biomechanical engineering management pays better though, $50k-$120k.
It’s insane what an advanced education costs these days (don’t get me started, I could really rant on this). I couldn’t afford to go to my alma mater, for example, these days. Sheesh!
Congrats on your daughter’s awesome future Trouble. Either way she will do what will make her happy/whats best for her. Smart cookie! And yes she will never leave, trust me, I watched my boss last year as he sent his oldest girl off to UTEP from us in the western provinces and it ripped him apart. He knows it is for her best and he missed/still misses her being home but it was a great growing experience for the both of them. It has cemented their relationship all the more.
Had a good first date last night, though a bit short. But we’re discussing getting together early next week. She’s in my neighborhood, so I want to tread carefully here since there’s a chance we will still run into each other if things don’t work out. But she seems quite nice.
Have a second date on Sunday after a great first a couple of weeks ago (damn you, holidays that fall in the middle of the week!)
Summers past have usually been slow times on the dating front, so this is a nice change.

I see you’ve started having a number of password protected entries. Yet, I see nothing on here that tells us what the password is or how to get it. Maybe I missed something. Could you tell us what the password is or how to obtain it? Thx
The password protected entries are for me to discuss issues I wish to keep private. I have a certain stalkery “ex” monitoring everything that is being said, and I wish to prevent him from seeing certain things. Sorry, it’s not personal. The password is given to people I know or long time commenters with whom I’ve established an offline relationship. I hope you understand.
Can we request for it or do you just send it out to select people?
I’m honestly not discussing anthing terribly scandalous. Its mostly stuff having to do with my Dad dying and some personal bits here and there. its just me working through stuff.
