“Just make a list!” everyone tells me when I start whining about how I can’t make a decision. Do you know how many lists I have in my little purse-size notebook? (Are there really that many decisions I have a hard time with…? [And do I really whine that much?])
Okay, so I’ve made a list. I’m trying to figure between Boston and Turkey for the next ten months, before I start grad school. But speaking of grad school: it’s going to take some quantitative computations to make any sense out of this list.
So, if I assign +1 point to minor positives on the list, and -1 point to minor negatives, and +3 points to major positives and -3 points to major negatives (but are they major in that they’re worth three or maybe five?) then what’s my final equation? And how many is “life” worth and how many does “job” merit? <Sigh>
