Hey guys, I'm just wondering if it's normal to feel this way. "Depressed" isn't the right word (a bit overdramatic), but I keep seeing people around me with "senioritis" who can't wait to graduate and move on. My fellow students keep talking about how they want to fast-forward time until May, but meanwhile thinking about graduation for me just leaves a sinking feeling. I honestly, truly love my professors here. I go to a very small school without a grad program, so I know all of them and they all know me. The two that I do research with are some of the most fun yet intelligent people in the world (well... that I've met) and I really just don't want to leave. I've done research with other groups at other universities (an REU, and another internship) and the experience just isn't the same. I love physics and absolutely want to pursue it further, but I'm terrified. I have a feeling that the real issue is my fear of change - when I entered undergrad, I chose a university about a half hour away from home and took full advantage while adapting to college life, and still hated it at first since I don't make friends easily. There isn't a graduate school anywhere nearby, so I won't have that luxury next year. I know that the first year or so of graduate school can be the most trying (or so I've heard), and I really don't want this silly facet of my personality to be the thing that fails me out of grad school. Surely there has got to be someone out there who felt this way before moving onto graduate school. I realize this is quite the "sissy" post, and that my only option is to suck it up and move on. I'm just hoping someone can give me tips or advice to make the transition a bit easier.
