What can YOU do for ME?

I've learned the hard way; never tell a woman to calm down, chill, or relax.

But my relationships (thankfully) aren’t the point of this post.

I think I’m managing all the waiting pretty well. No matter what the AdCom tells me – I’ll figure out a way to live the life I want. Pffft, It’s only the first week of February. Pffft, that “Results Post” from UT Austin Rhetoric… it’s probably imaginary,

I think I’m doing well – and then I think, “they’d tell me first, right?”

I think, “I’ll get an early acceptance. It should be right around the corner – never mind that they haven’t notified until much later in the month. Never mind any of that. They’d look at my file and decide to notify me early… because I’m special.”

I need to quit thinking.

I suppose I prefer the optimistic premonitions rather than my previously pessimistic doubt filled daydreams.

But. I need to quit thinking.

Soooo – regular readers will remember that I’m a (self-described) ruggedly handsome dude.

So have at it. Tell me to calm down, chill, and relax.

"Maybe you'll get an email next week!"

"They're probably just taking longer to deliberate."

"I'm sure you'll hear soon!"

"You're so smart, of course you'll get in."

"Well, there're always other schools."

"You're going to be fine."

"Don't worry!"

 

Don't you feel soooooo much more relaxed now?

Thanks Flibbertigibbet. Yeah I'm sure all our minds are racing at this stage.
