In case the stress is beginning to get to your gut, take a second to remember that while you may still be working on finding your niche, there was a big part of you that said 'Barnard is the right place for me' just a little while ago.

So make sure you breathe. Get some sleep while you still can. And let the voices in your head calm down a little.
