I awoke in a panic. My hands are shaking. There is a warm cup of coffee within hands' reach, perhaps I best not drink this. I depart for Europe on Friday and have a to-do list which scrolls about a mile long for me to tackle in the next few busy days. Apart from my current realization of how soon my trip is, I have been having a wonderful time on the east coast this past month. Graduate school taught me how to procrastinate, and I'm not sure how pleased I am with that. On the plus side, I'm rather good at compartmentalizing, so as soon as I jump into model mode, all fears will be assuaged.
