The clock is a ticking.
I need to be in Indiana 2 weeks before the start of classes (Aug 28), which means I need to be there by August 14th.
Assuming that I work 10 weeks at my summer internship (where, I still don't know), and leaving a few days to move from Virginia->Indiana, that has me starting my job on June 5. It'll take at least 3-4 days to get used to wherever i'm working, so that means I need to arrive for my internship on June 1.
I figure i'll need at least 3-4 days in Bloomington at the beginning of the summer to arrange for a flat, which means I need to be back in the US at least by the 3rd week of May, if not much sooner. So many things to sort out..etc
Also up in the air, is where I work...
If I find a job in europe, then I'll have the great benefit of being able to see my family this summer. If I find work in the US, then I'll either have to put up with not seeing my family till xmas, or I'll need to come back from Asia early (not a nice choice), so that I can nip off to europe for a few weeks.
Clearly, a European job is preferable.
