I have just submitted my first out of many applications (it was quite an ordeal because I'm quite bad at working computers). It is floating aorund through cyberspace right now, awaiting the critical review of Stanford Admissions officers. Do me good, little electronic form!! I worked hard on you!
I still don't feel any better. This is not a weight off of my chest, it's just another thing that is now completely out of my control. Oh, what a nuerotic pessimist I can be.
