My status message on Google talk screams the title aloud. The title is self-explanatory. However, a lot of 'concerned' souls seem to think otherwise and kept asking what the crisis is all about and if there is a serious problem happening. There are serious problems, but not in personal life, but in graduate student life.
A mid-sem crisis is something like a mid-life crisis. Mid-sem crisis usually happens due to overload of submissions/deadline for things to do, which is often a result of procrastination but not always. Such a situation always takes place in the graduate student life, every semester, between the first mid term and second mid term and at times goes on till the end of the semester. At times a day would have 2 hours of sleep and 20 hours of work.
Hopefully, I survive it this time! No exams in my course though, but a lot of teaching to do and things to work on for my research! Cannot wait to get back to my good old Bengaluru aka Bangalore for a vacation!
