It'd be funny if it were happening to someone else.
i would be happy just to get to sleep ...so that i could have nightmares
those dreams will be taken care of in about 2 1/2 weeks when you get some calls talking about how much you rock and they want to talk to you RIGHT AFTER CHRISTMAS. if you do get calls, is it okay to be cautiously optimistic as a grad student? (perhaps a year from now that will seem like a silly question)
Just had my first anxiety dream last night, actually. (That is, first *APA*-anxiety dream.) I was in the lobby of the APA hotel, already running late for an interview for some reason, but couldn't figure out what room I was supposed to go to. Wandered around for a long time, finally got someone to tell me, then pounded futilely on the door in question while they refused to let me in because of my tardiness. Good times.
I think my anxiety dreams will start when I actually get the calls for interviews. That's the scary part.
No I don't have anxiety dreams about the APA, although I might have one after reading this post.I have some knowledge of psychology and I would like to advise you of the following:this blog is desperately unhealthy and neurotic, both for those who maintain it and those who visit it. You should do your mental health a favour and STOP. You should also GET A LIFE outside of obsessing about your career. I was getting pretty overwrought about the job apps, but I forced myself to take a break and do some totally non-academic stuff, now I FEEL GREAT.
Anonymous 6:31, your post made me take a good long look in the mirror and I didn't like what I saw. You've inspired me to take up origami, and tomorrow I'm going spelunking. I feel better already. You are the wind beneath wings.
