the other "y"

it's official - we submitted our notice of intent to yale! it sure feels good to make a decision, and we're really excited about it!! after a lot of pondering and praying we felt like this is the best fit for us, and we're excited to start this new chapter of our lives.

an added bonus: we can keep all of our byu gear!

right now our plan is to stay in manhattan and migrate somewhere closer to metro north on the east side. jonathan would commute about an hour and forty-five minutes to new haven and use that time for studying, class prep, etc.

we've also considered moving to connecticut, but this would mean both of us commuting over an hour, buying a car so we can actually go places in a suburban area, moving away from the city (and from family in philly this summer!) and seeing a lot less of each other. because we love nyc, our scooter and being together, we most likely won't go this route. in good jonathan curtis fashion, however, we haven't completely ruled it out either.

as you can see we still have a little bit of figuring out to do, but at least we know where we are going! we'll keep you posted.

Congratulations! I am envious that you have a plan, even if that plan is a long commute, and still moving out of the ward.
