It's February 1st, which means that four out of five application deadlines for the grad programs I applied to have come and gone.
I put a lot of work in to the applications and remember thinking that once I have them completed and in the mail, I would just relax and let whatever happens happen. I honestly thought that I wouldn't stress out during the wait, but I was completely wrong.
The thing is, Em and I aren't just waiting to find out what school I'm going to get in to. There's also a pretty major move involved. I applied to five schools in five cities, the closest of which is over 1200 miles away. The plan is to move at the beginning of June, but we basically can't do any planning until we know where we are going. No moving truck, no apartments, no job searching. We just wait.
What started out as exciting daydreaming about possibilities has quickly turned in to frustrated anticipation. Don't get me wrong, it's still exciting. I am just more than ready to get some news.
