It's true. I've been feeling ill for the last week and a half. Originally, I thought it was a bug of some kind. I don't think it is anymore. In fact, I'm afraid I'm going to feel sick like this for the next, oh, seven or eight months.
'Why', you ask?
Because I'm really, really nervous.
Ever since I went and had a good talk with my professors and have been looking into graduate programs with some degree of depth and seriousness, I've been sick to my stomach. That's it - I don't have a cough, I don't have a runny nose - but I have had a case of The Mighty D on and off the whole time. (Too much information, I know. But it's early and I'm rambling as my boring teacher is blurghing on and on about Excel and blergh.) And I'm seriously afraid that I'm going to feel this way until the GRE is out of the way and I'm accepted into a grad program.
And I'm really afraid it's not going to stop then, either, and that it's going to rage until I'm in, moved, and have started school and have some sort of stability in my new life in (insert location of grad school here). And that's just The Suck!™ - and I want it to go away.
But it's not going to. I remember feeling sick to my stomach from the day I submitted my application to study abroad in Spain until I was in my room, unpacked, and ready for school the next day.
This is going to be a long, long few months. And there's nothing to do to stop it.
