I had a small bout of free-floating grad school existential angst today.  The: *gasp* what-if-I'm-not-making-sufficient-progre
ss-career-wise-and-what-if-this-whole-grad-school-thing-doesn't-get-me-where-I-hope-it's-going-to-get-me thing.  Part of it is that one of the people in the program who is about a year ahead of me got really stressful but super impressive job.  (This diminished a bit when I heard her say in the ladies that her old department was dissolved and that was really the impetus behind the move....) 

Comparing myself to other people never works.  It's not useful.  It's not healthy.

I understand that it's pretty normal for doc students to feel this way.  I mention this to people, and they say "oh don't worry...it'll be fine," but it's still unsettling. 

My last class was tonight, and I'm officially finished with this goddamned semester.
