I have officially turned down the PhD position and scholarships in Perth. I was supposed to move there by the end of May. In two months.
But I realized that a Phd in Public Health wasn’t really for me, and I didn’t want to do it if my heart wasn’t fully in it. So I gave my spot to a student on the reserve list.
I don’t regret not doing a PhD anymore, but I am a little sad that I’m missing out on Australia. Maybe it’s because Julie is in Sydney now, or because I’m growing more and more dissatisfied with France… I know David wants to visit Australia and New Zealand, so we will eventually go there. Someday.
