I have adrenaline rushes… why?

I don’t know what came over me, but I am very close to finishing my application for the US Peace Corps.  I finally had some time outside of planning for student teaching and applying for teaching jobs in Illinois.

I was sitting the local library after grading and job applying when I thouht, Why am I not applying? So, I brought the application back up and am just drafting my essay responses now.  I will have to wait a little bit and ask around for three letters of recommendation.

And, the weird part is just hitting me now. I posted the news to my Facebook feed and I got a really quick adrenaline rush… some excitement that I just have not had in such a long time.  Am I relieved?  Excited?  Nervous?  Feeling accomplished?  Or, am I stoked about getting out of this country again?  There is so much spinning in circles in my head.  There are some weeks during student teaching that I just felt like I got through in a complete daze.  Last week was not necessarily one of them.  Things are really starting to look up with regards to my teaching, etc.  So, what am I doing?  Seriously, how can I be so uncertain why I am getting such a rush?
