Congratulations! How relieved you must be, how wonderful a place Utah's program seems to be.
I wish you 4-5 years of learning, growth, fun, and wonderful, wonderful opportunity. :)
To anyone who's made that decision about a program and who may be even half as freakish, neurotic, and weird as I am--have you started thinking about moving to your new place? Is anyone nervous at all about all of the damned details involved in moving, or is it just me?
I know there are a few months before I leave for the midwest (August 1 is my move date), so I shouldn't worry so much just yet, but I'm in high-anxiety mode. I've begun shopping for a car, and with a limited budget and a lot of concerns (good gas mileage, easy maintenance, low-cost of repair should the need arise, etc.), and between the (mostly) shitty cars I have seen and the car salesmen--AND the private sellers--with absolutely attrocious manners, I'm in this strange, hopeless sort of place. The moment that any other details about moving come into my head, it's just a snowball into a panic attack. Not good! But I guess the initial excitement of PhD acceptance had to wear off sometime and the reality of moving my life from Boston to Missouri had to start sinking in sometime, somehow...
Am I alone in this well of worry?
