Pretty much. In this one area she was driving herself nuts and taking us along with her. I thought offering her control of the college funds would remove me from being an authority figure and make her feel more in control. It certainly got her attention and made her settle down for a serious conversation. Turns out she liked
having us run that money so that she didn't have to.
The dorm is going through its annual "Will we have room for everyone next year or will we have to force some students to live off campus" drama. She was obsessing over all the blow-by-blow details and had worked herself up into a frenzy because she didn't want to live off campus. But apparently the intrigue is bad enough to make a dozen students volunteer to live off campus just so that they don't have to go through the uncertainty again next year, and she'll probably get to stay in the dorm anyway.
We'll all feel the earth move sometime in late March, and we'll know that the question has been answered.
