With that in mind, I'll start with what's going on now and work backwards.
Up until a couple days ago I had been feeling fairly uninformed about all things Indiana University Bloomington. I had received a financial aid award letter in April but otherwise I had no idea about a bunch of stuff. I know, of course, that once I get there I will definitely get the information I need even if it comes in the form of an angry school staff member who is complaining about such-and-such they never got from me and now I can't register. Somehow I would get information. But it still stressed me out. Yesterday I finally got information and a lot of it at that! Only now I'm even more stressed!
This is really happening. We're really moving in two weeks to Indiana, I'm really starting grad school and I really have a show I'm designing and the preliminary designs are really due Sept 8th.
But we still have so much to do! My sister-in-law, Megan, is also moving and blogged yesterday about her feelings about it. It was really helpful to remember that moving is stressful and that is normal and ok, but despite that I need to keep a positive attitude and remain grateful for this wonderful opportunity. I need to stay open and receptive to all the experiences that will come our way rather than bogged down by the minutia.
