Okay, having a bit of a panic moment...Well, not so much panic maybe, just feel kind of sad all of the sudden. Has anyone else felt this??? My SO is in North Carolina, training to return to Iraq with the USMC reserves. I got to see him this past weekend for probably the last time until...well, until our 1L year is over! So, I guess I'm feeling worried, and sad about that, and nervous about moving this weekend, even though I have various family and friends roped in to help me out. I just feel like the first time I'm going to be sitting in my apartment alone I'm just gonna cry like a little baby!!! And I don't usually act like a baby, but a lot of the process of moving and getting ready to go has been tough, like trying to get my car sold. I mean, I don't even have my laptop yet! Did my financial aid go through? I'm supposed to have gum surgery this fall and a crown placed, how the hell am I gonna do that? Maybe I'm just feeling overwhelmed, and maybe someone can offer some reassuring words (greengrl and Jolie always seem so good with this)...
after reading this board, i am going to get to my orientation, look around and feel better knowing that just about every single person there has been brought to breaking point in the last month while getting ready for ls. way better than picturing everyone in their underwear. (or is it?)cry when you feel like it is good advice.saying hi to every single person is critical advice. i have some very introverted friends who are always amazed at how positively most people respond to a simple hello. in fact, i would say that most people are just waiting for someone else to say hello first...being that person pays off in spades in the long run. people really appreciate kindness and friendliness, even if they don't say anything at the time - you make a great first impression by taking that simple initiative...EDIT: i know that for many, "simple" doesn't equal "easy" in this case.
well, if you would have picked Iowa you would already know what orientation was like today was especially long and annoying. but it gets better
