I feel it.
This legendary feeling that every NSF at the end of his time tells you about. It comes in bouts of sudden joy, knowing that the end is at hand. You are in the middle of a dull dragging day and out of the blue, it catches you, sucks the air from your lungs and stops the blood flowing into your brain, making you light headed.
It has begun and it will last for about 2 months more.
You can only gasp…
(Note: Premature? Nope, this feeling is best felt at the ending months of the sentence. After the release, you probably just feel “Ahh, back to normal living”)
