the opportunity that got away

I have two things I want to talk about. 

  1. I turned down an almost full ride scholarship to a small, private college, in order to pay to go to the big, state university. I sometimes wonder how life would have turned out if I had taken the other path; though I’m confident that I have alternate reality Jenn beat by kind of a lot. 
  2. In the same vein, I sometimes wonder what I’d be doing now if I had stuck with my decision to leave my husband in 2011 instead of going back to him for another six months. Timing is everything, it turns out. G and I met D and K just a few weeks after we reunited.
