    Will this be a good decision?

    My mother just informed me that she's offering to pay half of my flight ticket to Egypt if I decide to go. Only reason of why I didn't want to go is that because I was afraid that I might miss a call from the Police Department that I'm testing for.

    So I made up my mind of to finally go with my mom and my brother to my hometown in Cairo, Egypt to visit my sister, and close friends whom I haven't seen in 13 years. I figure that if I go, the Police Department will always have later testing dates(which they do cause I already looked) and the trip will actually clear my head a little and make me actually feel a little better since I've been just out of it lately. If I don't go, I will be struck with feelings of guiltiness of why I didn't go. I won't get to see my sister for the next 3 to 4 years, and I'll never meet my nieces and nephew.

    Also the trip won't cost me as much. $1000($6,000 in Egyptian Pastors) for spending money, and $1,000 for the plane ticket.

    The only thing is I'm worried about missing my chance at the P.D, but is it really missing it if I am testing for it later?

    Sounds like a good decision to me. I'd take the opportunity to see my family in that situation. Sounds like you have less chances to do that than to test for a PD. You can always test at a later date.

    Go see your family. You can't put your life on hold forever while trying to get a new job. Life is what happens while we're making other plans.

    Is it a one way ticket?

    Go, have fun...just don't be seen in the company of an unrelated female or they'll give your yambag 100 lashes.
    Why no, that's not a pregnant anaconda in my pants...why do you ask?

    Agreed. When they put the bridge in I'll go do some more tourist stuff.
