Wow, ten minutes ago I was feeling great: now I'm having a panic attack about not being prepared for this Cornell conference next weekend. Brain, please stop obsessing! It would be nice if I could stop being anxious long enough to actually do the things (like preparing for the conference) that would prevent me from making the fool of myself I think I'm about to.
I'm also wondering whether I was dumb not to apply to certain other grad school programs - NYU's Culture and Communication program, for example - because now I feel like I really have very few choices. Which, well, I do.
No! Bad brain!
Forget this self-discipline thing. I'm going to bed.
