Oh Calendar, How you Terrify Me
The problem is that January 2012 immediately (IMMEDIATELY!) follows December 2011. So I'm sitting here relaxing my way through the last week of December, completely neglecting (until like 20 minutes ago) that January 1st (when two of my apps are due) is in four days. FOUR DAYS! AGH! I tried to do all of my December apps at least a week (or three) ahead of time. All of those apps that were sitting in the misty, undefined future, are now due in a few days- dang it. Now I have to shift into panic-and-get-things-done gear, and desperately hope that the one transcript and two GRE scores that I forgot to send arrive in time. Sigh. Why do I do this to myself?
