I was sitting having dinner this evening with a group of folks in my dorm. Very nice group, nice conversation. One of them, someone who'd been around a while, said "when I was in your position I was panicked." I said "I'm close, but not there yet."
Well, just a few minutes later, thinking about the whole conversation (we went everywhere from what courses everyone is taking, to someone's upcoming ordination, to internships, to what one of the D.Min students is doing for a thesis….), I'm getting panicked. Seriously.
