Wow, thanks for writing this. I definitely fall into the category of wanting it all. With an exception of a substantial amount of money (I just want enough to travel to Europe again, and Egypt when they settle down a tad, and India, and New Zealand, and China, and… well, a lot of places. I’m a travel-holic in my heart.) I want a family and kids, and a job that I love and my family respects, and I want to keep all my good friends forever. When I look at it with my mind instead of my heart, I can see that these things have to be prioritized. Can I work on my MFA in Art History and have kids at the same time? Maybe. But should I? These are good questions to ask myself.
