When my boyfriend says he has faith in me, and that the next decision will be an acceptance:

When people try to be supportive during the waiting period by asking you what Plan B is if the PhD doesn't happen:

When you think you've got it all under control (until you don't):

Just. Want. One. Acceptance. :

When you remember that results aren't going to roll in until after the weekend after a long week of waiting:

I've been online shopping obsessively out of nervousness, so there better be a lot of good any kind of news this week

I know how that goes. I've been obsessively buying higher end fitnesswear from ebay...and I work out in my apartment.

"Oh, stop worrying--you'll get in somewhere!"

"Just take your mind off admissions results. Relaxxxx!"

"Stop checking your email 5000 times a day. It's not going to make the results come any faster."

"Everything will work out in the end!"
