So, ever since I started college, and even before, I've desperately wanted to study abroad, preferably in London. Actually, it's always been London that I focused on.

Practically... I don't think it's going to happen. I changed my goal from a semester to six weeks in the summer, but even so... I haven't entirely given up hope; there's scholarships and things so maybe I still have a shot if I do my research right, but a big part of me is thinking it's just not going to happen.

I'll get there one day, it just might not be during college.

And speaking of college... I go to school in my second hometown - by which I mean, I wasn't born in this city but I've lived here or in its suburbs for half my life now, and I identify even more strongly with this place, after all that time. I don't regret it; I love my school and I love seeing the Philly skyline every day because I love this city.

But when I was a kid, up until about midway through high school, I dreamed of New York. I wanted to go to college there so badly, I wanted to live there. I know I'm not alone in this, but still. And now, the school I belong to here at my university has started a new summer program. They had another domestic one - L.A., and I was considering it - but now they have one in New York City.

When God closes a door he opens a window? I think that's a good saying to keep in mind even if you're not religious; a reminder that even if one chance slips away there's always something else good if you look right.

Maybe this program is my new window. Or maybe the door's not closed and locked yet, and London's still something I have a shot at. But if I don't... There's a lot good about the chance to work in New York. In some ways, for my resume, it might even be better.

We'll see what I can manage, shall we?
