I've made choices that have led me to where I am. I have very few regrets, and I honestly love my life. I am married to my best friend and lover, I have the most charming child imaginable, I go to a good university, and I am passionate about what I study.
But sometimes, just for a moment, I wish that things were different. Today, I had one of those conversations with myself.
There is a Comparative Women's Studies program in Europe. In Granada, Utrecht, Krakow, Berlin, Prague, and Istanbul to be specific. It's an amazing experience: incredibly influential feminist scholars from across Europe speak on many fascinating issues in gender and feminist studies, specifically affecting Europe. Feminist philosophers, film directors, activists, and non-profit directors. Women who are changing the world.
It is such a great research opportunity. A learning experience.
One day, one day...sigh.
Just not today.
Today, I am going to make dinner, read, bake chocolate chip cookies, and sew. Today, I will dream.
