AAHH! Hi everyone. I’m alive. Over the past few weeks I have had to put my nose to the grindstone (or whatever the expression is) to study for the GRE. If you don’t know what the GRE is, it’s like the SAT for master’s students. Though it doesn’t seem that certain grad programs rely heavily on them, it is still required as part of the application process for some schools. I have been studying for the past 6 weeks but the last two have been the hardest. As always, the guilt, stress and anxiety set in and I started to feel that any waking moment spent not studying would make me fail miserably. I don’t know why I get like this, when a few distractions would be better for brain health anyway. It’s something I really have to work on. What do you all do when you need to/should take a break from something really important but feel guilty about doing so? Am I just weird and this doesn’t happen to anyone else? Anyway, I hope you’re all well and I will be writing more soon. Leave a comment and let me know how you are. xoxo!
