Deny it all you want, but the truth of the matter is that sooner or later it gets to you. Have been acting all calm and composed over the last so many days regarding the so called placement fair, but today i guess it just crossed the threshhold. And hence, the sings of the inevitable, stress! Guess its to do with the inherent insecurity that one has, apprehension about new things, fear of the unknown.

I wouldn't have accpeted it unless I realised that what the hell, its but human to feel stressed and a bit nervous, is it not? And it manisfested itself in quite a peculiar way too! I wasn't in the mood to study so decided to watch a couple of episodes of Boston Legal. I picked up my headphones, put them on and started watching. A couple of hours later, a friend of mine commented, "Why do you have your headphones on, when you have got the speakers plugged in? " Bingo!

Come to think of it, there's no point in actually denying that you are feeling stressed when you actually are. Nothing good comes out of it. Instead once you have accepted it, you can take corrective measures to reduce your stress levels, do weird things in the name of calming yourself :P. Guess that's what led me to decide to do a bit of laundry at 3 in the morning! Oh and yeah, seems even our placement cell is stressed out! Buggers have sent the same mail six times in two hours!
