This is so my theme song right now...

Earlier this month, Jess, a blogging friend (yes, I have blogging friends - don't judge!), talked about how she sometimes thinks - if life was a movie, what song would be playing at this moment?

Being a music-lover, I sort of do the same thing.

And right now, if my life was a movie, the theme song that would be playing would be "Under Pressure" by Queen. (Btw - everytime I hear the opening sequence of the song, I immediately think of the song "Ice, Ice Baby")

Last week was spring break and I was feeling oh so carefree and stressless. Classes resumed last night, and the stress bug, or whatever you want to call it, has returned. And when I start stressing about one thing, it sort of snowballs and before you know it, I'm tossing and turning at night, worrying about the most ridiculous things.

Like last night, it dawned on me that my NYC trip is less than a month away and I have no idea what I am going to do when I am out there... I have 5 people to visit and haven't even started coordinating everyone's schedules so I can figure out who I should visit on which days while I am out there.

Then I thought - this is ridiculous. I am stressing myself out about a freaking vacation.

I know that once my strategy professor returns my phone call/email to set up a meeting to discuss my paper re-writes, I will be feeling much better. But the stress of that whole re-write situation is spreading to other areas of my life, making me feel very tightly wound and on edge about darn near everything.

And it's making me wish I could hop in a time machine, and re-do this semester. If I could do it over again, I would NEVER have taken that class & instead would have signed up for a finance one instead. So I am sort of kicking myself for registering for a class that is making my last semester of grad school pretty darn hellish.

If only said time machine existed.

Until then, I am sucking it up & waiting until the soundtrack of my life switches from something like "Under Pressure" to "A Good Day" by Priscilla Ahn... (a very good, mellow artist that is worth checking out, btw)

I often wish that I had a time machine too. In hindsight, there's so many LITTLE things I could do to make life so much easier, sigh.

I stress myself out over vacations to. I'm a big planner. I'm sure when it boils right down to it and comes time for you to go to NYC you'll end up having a great/relaxing time ON the vacation! It's just the planning that'll be a bit stressful :-)

On the upside, that is a really, really good song.

Believe me, I totally understand how you're feeling right now. It's that time of year for a lot of people. Sometimes it's hard to stay positive, but you just have to push through and in the end you're going to be rewarded with a trip to NYC.

And, I'm flattered that you referenced me. And, I like having blog friends, so I thank you!

Ha - I do that too (with the song). My best friend and I used to think we must be on a TV show because our lives were so crazy. Now they are boring, but at least we can have background theme song :)

Your vaca will be here before ya know it and sometimes not having things planned can lead to the most fun.
