One of my teachers told me that I was the most intelligent student she'd had, but also the most high strung... Didn't really know what to say to that... I'm hoping when she writes my recc letters she includes the first part and not the second
I don't consider myself uptight. I did well in college and in the application process, but I did work very hard. Played hard too, though! Although these days I don't do much besides pretend to work at work, sleep, and eat.
I'm laidback about this whole process...obviously there were some stressful moments and a lot of hard work but it's managable with plenty of time to enjoy yourself. You need that balance to keep you sane I think. and now that I'm accepted I'm taking advantage of every minute of the last few months of free time I have.
