Don’t panic

I haven’t been this nervous in a long, long time. You’d think moving to Jamaica or traveling alone in India would have caused me to feel anxious. Yes, to a certain extent. But not like this.

This is big. I want to remember how I am feeling tonight. Mark the moment somehow.

Tomorrow is my first day as doctoral student. There’s a lot to prove. I hope I can live up to it all.

I’m going to plan my ‘first day’ outfit, pack my bag and make my lunch. Like I used to do as a young girl. I think it will calm me down. I also found this and it made me feel a little bit better:

What am I doing?

I’m gonna be that girl. That kind of woman. The one who goes for it. Fights for her dreams. Despite the many rejections (there were 4 schools that turned me down), fears and straight through the tears and pain.

Don’t panic. It’s go time.

  1. Hey Brianna! How was your first day? What did you make for your lunch? What does a doctor of philosophy eat anyway?!

    We’re all cheering you on. Hooray for you!
    Love from Martha and all your fans.
