Dreaming Of School Names? No, You’re Not Losing Your Mind!

Do you find yourself dreaming in school names?

Brentwood, The Center, Curtis, Willows, John ThomasDyeNewRoadsTheWillowsCrossroadsCarlthorpMirmanStJamesLaurelHallVillageCampbellHallPS#1Curtis. OMG! Stop! They all start merging together in your mind. That’s because you know the names well. They’re embedded in your sub-conscious. No, you’re not going crazy. You’re just like the rest of us who went through the admissions process.

I wish somebody had told me to find something else to think about, dream about, talk about while we waited until we got our admissions letters. But, nobody did. Well, my husband did, but I ignored his advice. Staying sanely balanced for a few months wasn’t easy! But, I lost myself in fashion magazines, celebrity gossip and of course, blogs. 

I saw this brilliant poster on The English Muse and thought I’d share it. It’s by madmanincognito on etsy. Perhaps it best summarizes how you’re feeling?
