Panic Attacks: The New Black

So, as far as the title of this blog is concerned, basically I am trying to say that panic attacks (not the clinical kind, just the "susie" kind) have become a regular part of my wardrobe/lifestyle. I am feeling very stressed out. Ultimately, everything will be okay. But, for now, I am losing sleep and getting sick and feeling miserable in general. Of course, once Oct. 15 passes me by, I will feel somewhat better. I am trying to get in plenty of exercise (in attempts to maintain good health and to exhaust me enough to sleep). However, last night, I was wide awake until after 4 a.m. Ugh.

Anyway, other than that, I really don't have a lot to say. I am getting over the usual fall virus/funk that circulates on campus. I am reading way too much literary criticism. I am trying to be a good instructor, but it is hard on certain days! I think I just need some time to decompress.
