Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I know I know - I am still about 4 months away from day 1 of classes, but I am starting to get the jitters! Suddenly figuring out that I have so much to do in these 4 months..figuring out housing, roommates, finances, visa process (for us internationals), how the heck do I move my entire apartment across 4 states?!, when do I quit work and cut off the cord to the paychecks!
Starting to feel the heat behind me now and that little bit of nervousness whether I am mentally prepared for a serious drop in lifestyle and living cheaply. Of course, all of this is bundled with oodles of excitement and part of me can't wait!
I've had this from the moment I decided I wanted to go back to school. Nervous excitement over filling out applications and re-drafting essays for the umpteenth time, filled with nothing but hopes and possibilities. Once acceptances start coming in, you start to get excited about those other things...housing, new friends in a new city, drastic changes to your lifestyle. You're giddy with anticipation, nervously excited with a hint of apprehension over whether you've made the right choice (Did I pick the right school? Is now truly the time for me?).
All I know is, good times are ahead for us all. I can't wait...I want it to start now!
Absolutely man... I think everyone has it to some extent. As a career switcher leaving a steady gig to go +/- 140k in the hole and try to break into something new, I have a more than healthy dose. It's a big leap for all of us but I'm heartened that there are so many talented, enthusiastic folks who are going along for the ride. We're going to rock it out and achieve some awesome things.
Same here, guys. A bit panicked with taking on massive debts. On top of regular tuitions, I am concerned about not being willing to shell extra money for all the trips/treks/activities available during school. I know that I can't live like a monk and that these actitivities are great, but with the sticker shock, I am concerned my first reflex will be to skip on that.
