Although there is a sniff of freedom right now - nope, not on the clock.
Moving on to the next stage.
I'm a Junior this year and expect to be part of the class of 2018 (ER.) What I did a few months ago is make a list of the pros and cons of ER and revisit that list quite often. Underneath my heading Cons - is an area where I can describe how I will deal with the "cons." My two main concerns are:
a. Not having enough (which I realize that I will never have - even though I have never spent a whole lot,) and
b. The fears associated with change. I realize that I do not handle "change" well and I am thankful that I have a strong support system to walk me through this transition period.
BTW - its ironic that I listed "change" as one of my trepidations - as this is an area I struggle with in the w*ork world.
Simply, identify the source of your concerns and implement a plan to make your transition smooth.
