Embrace it. Enjoy it. Don't let the stress ruin it.
Volunteer! Network like crazy! Mentor others! Exercise! Read!
And journal. journal daily to fully exploit the ups and downs. Because when you are working you will remember the growth you went through/ are going through.
We only get one Oct 21, 2016- so my humble advice is to live it fully. The work will come, the money stress will abate, the career progression will follow your passions. Best to treasure this moment and use it.
