flatwhiteplease Posted September 3, 2020 Share Posted September 3, 2020 Hi everyone, I was all set to travel to Paris to start a two-year master's in economics and psychology, but during my last week at home I started getting some serious doubts about my decision. I'm looking for some rational advice on this topic because I have no idea what to do. Background: Econ and math BSc from top Canadian university, 2+ years of experience in digital consulting. Working remotely as a translator for the past year due to COVID and family issues. Pros of program: - Additional skills - Filling a gap in my resume - Waiting out the pandemic while doing something useful - Opportunity to live in Paris - Social environment Cons: - 2 years away from my family, uncertainty about future border closures - Loss of potential income, and I still have 3k+ debt that needs to be paid off and no funding for program/living costs - Locked into a program for 2 years, with no chance to change course during this time - Potential issues related to COVID-19 - This summer, I discovered my passion for writing again, and have finished a draft for a novel that has some potential. I've started a professional creative writing course and I might not have time to pursue it during my master's. My plane was supposed to leave earlier this week, but it was cancelled last-minute. My next plane leaves this weekend. I've had some serious anxiety considering this decision, and I have no idea what's best for me... Please help?
