Normally the end of the semester/school year is a time of sudden relaxation. Classes are over. Grades are in. And it’s time to relax until the start of the next session (which this time is the first week of June for me). And I am pausing to breathe this weekend.
But things are different this time.
This time I am doing research, and writing it up, which does not depend on semester schedules. I’m still stressed. I still have a thousand directions I’m going in and a thousand things I am doing. So the relaxing and breathing this is very abbreviated right now.
Right now I’m just looking forward to relaxing after graduation. And that’s still more than a year and a half away in the current plan.
So if I still seemed stressed, that’s why.
