Every time I think of it I get really nervous, my heart races and my palms sweat.
The weird thing is, I think I am doing pretty well in the program. My exams come back with good grades, my papers are not returned for revision, my presentations seem to go over well, I participate in every class, I am on time and my assignments are on time, and so on. But the idea of 6 faculty members sitting around me and talking about me TO/WITH me makes me EXTREMELY nervous. Also, they have all prepared packets with their feedback that I am supposed to read before I go in front of them.
I am more nervous than I was at my interview.
Everyone is really nervous. I'm trying not to talk about it too much with everyone because I don't want to feed other people's nerves. So here I am, writing about it on my art blog, even though it's not necessarily the right place for it.
