Working on the Stress

I thought I should let y'all know that I'm doing much better today that I was this time last week. I'm not really sure why, though. Everything that was freaking me out last week and that caused me to have the breakdown is still true and I'm basically in the same place I was then. I'm just not freaking out about it. I think everyone who said maybe I just needed to get the emotions out and vent a bit was right.

I have a meeting with my advisor today. Well, I sort of have a meeting. When I asked him about a meeting he told me when his office hours are and said to drop by. One of his weekly office hours is later today. There is a part of me that wants to put it off and not go in today, but there is no reason to put it off and I just discovered a pretty schnazzy grant, the application for which is due Nov. 13 and I need to talk to the advisor about it so I can't wait or I'll run out of time to get the application done by the due date. I don't think I'm ready to meet with my advisor so the plan was to spend today prepping specifically for the meeting. The problem is when I sit down to do that I can't think of anything I actually need to do to prep, which makes me think we're back to everything just being me freaking out and I'm better off than I think I am, but I'm really not sure.

On a completely different topic, I posted a video on Saturday of pics with narration of the first three days of the Germany trip. Since absolutely no one has commented on that post, I'm wondering if perhaps people had busy weekends and missed it so here's the link to the post in case you didn't catch it the first time around. I don't want to seem like I'm begging for comments or anything so if you don't have time to watch the video or aren't interested or just don't want to comment or whatever, please don't feel like I'm trying to guilt you into it or be passive-aggressive about it or whatever. I was just surprised that no one commented and figured for sure at least one person would have had something to say about it, even if just to make fun of me pronouncing German words with my Texas drawl. :)
