I’m monumentally freaked out.
It’s just a test, this is only a test, yet today I worked myself into such a tizzy studying for this test that I truly felt despair. When I stand back and examine how much time I’ve spent reading, reviewing, and talking with my classmates about the books and articles on the comps list, it is obvious that I’m prepared. But I still have pockets of panicking. Today is one giant pocket.
So when Kirsty emailed me and suggested a walk in the woods, I couldn’t disagree with her that it would improve my sanity if I spent some time outside in the gorgeous weather. We even took some pictures:
This tree reminded both of us of the Tree of Life, which reminded me to keep a more eternal perspective about this test.
I came back from the walk, feeling a lot better. Not better about the test, and I still feel an undercurrent of panic, but I feel better. Thanks, Kirsty!
