Butterfly Effect

If you are familiar with the term butterfly effect you'll understand the situation.

Five months ago I had to move out from my place. That lead to canceling my plans for this summer vacation since moving out cost me around KD1200. With my plans shattered I had no other plan but to start a family. Few days after knowing that my wife is pregnant I got an anonymous call telling me I got accepted on a scholarship! I went to review my application and turns out I did apply for masters degree a year ago. That means I have to leave the country for three years for this masters program. I can't take my wife with me for her safety and baby's. Now I have to move my furniture to self storage, pay another rent abroad, send money back home for the wife and future kid, and probably have to sell the car and get a new one to take it there with me.

This is a hard situation. My child will be born and probably grow up a few years without me around him/her and even harder for my wife. Hopefully it won't be as bad as I think. Time flies by and I'm doing this for the best.

Wish me luck because I really need it.
