Back on track

Aaaaand... there I go! Now that my research plan is written and being read by my supervisors (before I hand it in to the tribunal that has to accept it and give me green light to actually start my research) I can say it out loud: I'm back on track! I must admit it took me a while to find myself at home at the office, to feel like waking up in the morning to come to work, to actually find a reason for my existance! But philosophical issues aside, I think I must have overcome a sort of phase (grieving phase, if you like) in which I got to realise that my life status was about to change... A long-term relationship with my thesis is waiting for me, and I am scared as hell... Have you had a similar feeling?
