I'm halfway my penultimate exam period, and I feel great! My 4 exams are pretty well spread over 3 weeks, so I'm not nearly as stressed as usual. (Except for the issue where I started grinding my teeth all the time. Not sure where that came from.)
This gives me lots of time to reflect (and some to procrastinate, sadly) and think about how much I love studying, and my courses, and looking forward to doing something useful with all of this. My studies inspire me and encourage me to look up more details or different applications. It's been a long time since I felt this way about studying and learning in general.
So, all in all, life is looking good, and I feel like I'm well on schedule with everything! If only a few years ago I would have realized how happy I would be right now...
To everyone whose life isn't going particularly well right now: don't worry. Somehow, if you really want it, things will work out. And it will be worth it. Just remember to keep people who make you better as a person close to you, and lose the others. You will hardly remember them in a few years.
