This is me right now! 

 

I am considering getting off of grad cafe because i think this might just make me more anxious than without. Thoughts?

Yea or just check it much less... I only check it like once every other day or so.. but having a group of people in the same place mentally helps hah

Nixed by Northwestern, shunned by Chicago, rebuffed by Rice, banished by Berkeley, forsaken by Fordham.

Hey, as someone who had similar luck last year and also pulled out of a Master's for financial reasons, I strongly empathize with this! A couple of notes on what I did, in case it's useful: pretty soo

You are always accepted to the University of my heart.

I've only seen two also, but they released their acceptances the exact same day as last year. And last year they didn't have any accpetances that were given out (other than waitlisted ones) after their initial date. So, I'm just deducing haha not any objective evidence.

Fair points.

Looking at grad cafe while listening to certain kinds of music makes the experience much more pleasant for me.  Throw on some Funkadelic (or Parliament), for instance.

Infectious cuts to start you on your interstellar journey that will take away your cares include, but are definitely not limited to, the following:

Always remember the wise words of the Funkadelic: free your mind and your ass will follow; the kingdom of heaven is within.

If we're doing music for trying times, you guys might enjoy this bit of existential wobble from the Kit Fine Ensemble, featuring some serious disciplinary shade:

Phi-lo-so-ophy
It's not for me!
I don't have what it takes,

I'm not one of the greats...
So I'll practice law,
Make money galore!
Make money, make money,
And thi-i-ink no more.
?

And which ends with the heartwarming message of 'be yourself!'

Which I think is good to keep in mind during application season when everyone's a little worried about how they're presenting themselves. :)

This is a funny song, but if Kit Fine has written it from his own perspective, then he has a serious case of impostor syndrome (of course, comparing oneself to "the greats" is always a little silly, so I get the self-deprecating humor).

Washing the dishes has become therapeutic because I actually accomplish something ?

Perhaps you could set yourself for a reading or writing challenge? Read a paper every x days, write a paragraph a day, or similar. :)

I also had an obsession with washing dishes during admissions season. It was a mindless but productive task that kept me from refreshing my email/the results page 600x!

Happy Valentines Day, everyone. Stay hopeful. You've got this. 

I thought we'd be free from rejections--today of all days! Heartless, really.
