    always. it's weird because i'm way too busy and swamped to feel sad or homesick like i usually do when i make a big move. if the emotions are positive then hey, that's chill. if they're negative, you can always see your school's department specialists. i'm sure they'll be able to help.

    Yes. I'm all over the place. I mean, really, it's mostly steady, because the move wasn't too far and the workload is even so far.. there also isn't a lot of excitement at the moment because I have family responsibilities and I'm not meeting new people or getting involved on campus yet.. but I go back and forth on thinking about what I'm going to do and just trying to deal with day-to-day life.

I'm drowning in reading. I figured taking 7 classes would be a challenge, but it is HARD to keep everything straight.

    The credit system/the way things are weighted is a little different here.

    Yes, dont hesitate to ask for time off. Professors seem to always be very understanding in these situations. I had an appendectomy only a few weeks into freshman year of college. Different situation of course but the professors were amazingly understanding. I am very sorry for your loss.

I am up to my ears in reading material but I find it very interesting. Now if I could only wrap my head around these APA papers.

Ecstatic. Just had very positive communication with some faculty at U of Toronto.

    Thank you. :) Had been feeling down after a not so great meeting with a former prof, so this definitely lifted my spirits.

    Great! I'm applying there (because of some positive communication with the faculty as well).

I fall asleep reading, I wake up reading, I read when I eat, I read on the bus... I'm swimming in ideas and words.

    On another note, you should download the 10,000 hours app and start tracking your reading. Then you can say you're an expert. :P
