The weeks of waiting for acceptance or rejection letters are dwindling down to days. Between the constant email-checking and All Nurses forum-checking, I wrestle with the thought that I have become a slave to thesix schools that hold my future in their hands.
It's bad, folks... Especially in the evenings, when I eagerly check my home mailbox only to find a Penny Saver and Del Taco coupons, a mockery of a consolation prize. My fate for the day is sealed and I know that the hope of receiving any responses is dead. All I can do is wait to repeat this agonizing ritual again the next day.
The kettle is not boiling because I always have an eye on it. My mind is screaming, "BOIL ALREADY!" but, of course, that never helps.
What about you? How do you pass the time to keep from going crazy?
