"No, you don't understand. I HAD to buy this new/expensive sweater. What if I get a grad school interview? Preparation is key."

ME: "Maybe if I get into Berkeley I won't go. I don't really want to leave NY."

FRIEND: "You're not serious, are you?"

ME: "No. Well...maybe. I don't want to go. But I can't not go."

Note to all: After thinking and planning and working on this for years, I can't believe the crazy thoughts that are going through my head right now. This process freaking SUCKS!!! I mean, who am I to turn down Berkeley?

This must be some weird kind of masochistic defense/coping mechanism because I do the same thing like every two days. If I turn down a PhD with funding opp (since I only applied to one PhD), someone have me killed.

- "What are my chances (rate from 0-100%) of getting in at XXX University? I want a specific value. Thankss."

OMG, I do that to my SO all the time! And I freak out when his numbers fluctuate: "what do you mean 80%? Last week you said 90%!!!"

Any one else's friends, family and SOs suffering from our constant anxiety and obsession lately? lol
