Oh my goodness! I am so conflicted! The career counselor I was supposed to meet with called in sick today, and I just (ten minutes ago) found out that a long-shot research proposal I submitted with my advisor was funded! On the one hand, awesome! Maybe I can do this PhD thing without completely losing my mind after all. I mean having that degree will have its advantages in the long run. On the other hand - terrible timing!
Oh man, my stress level has just shot way through the roof. My first thought when I got the news wasn't "yay," it was "oh crap I can't quit now." Headdesk headdesk headdesk.
I just want to eat chocolate and ignore any and all thoughts related to work right now, but I am NOT going to do that. I am going to go eat an apple, take a hot shower, and hope that I am able to fall asleep tonight. Not to sound ungrateful, but curse my good fortune! And fingers crossed that the good luck continues on through tomorrow's appointment with the surgeon.
