And in the battle between doing what makes me happy and feels right and doing what my mother wants, I have triumphed without too much of a fight. I will be in Chicago, I will study genetics. It will be difficult and different from anything ever before. I will learn and be challenged and stretched. I will perhaps be good at it and end up with an internship next summer. I wonder sometimes when these all started to be things that made me happy, if a little bit nervous. I have triumphed. Everything comes together and life will be good. I wonder what it is about women and haircuts. Perhaps just the thrill of changing one's appearance in a drastic fashion. But I have short purple hair and confidence and maturity and I am going to spend a month studying molecular DNA technology, and genetics, and I will be happy. Yay.
