They're due 5 am here so I'm mostly spending today convincing myself they'll release them early so I don't have to go to bed with results anxiety ticking over in my brain, which then leads to no sleep, which then leads to me checking for results in the dead of night, which leads to anxiety, which leads to no sleep... One day I will learn to just chill out a bit, it's not like I can change the outcome at this point.

How's everybody doing?

They’ve released results earlier than midnight a couple times since I started doing this in 2014. Try meditating to relax yourself enough to sleep, set your alarm for 5 AM, go to bed, and dream about winning Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards. This competition isn’t worth the anxiety levels and loss of sleep you describe putting yourself through. Best wishes.

I hope your anxiety is lifted soon. I have noticed that they do come out early some years (as mentioned above), so I don't think you will have to wait that long. Best of luck to you!!

I'm in the same time zone boat as @Swilki sans anxiety. Hope they're early. Fingers crossed!

ha thanks, I think I just need to relax as a general rule. I've really enjoyed this exercise so hoping I get to carry on but I hate waiting!
Good luck to everyone anyway

Feeling the same anxiety. I’m limiting how often I allow myself to refresh my email. Hoping I don’t have to go to sleep waiting for results.

I almost forgot! I'm glad I almost forgot so now I'll only spend part of the day refreshing the inbox like mad. Good luck, all!

Yep… waiting until 5am too

Slightly nervy with this one… to be honest i’ll be glad even if it was accepted to have fullfilled the brief (but would be mean if it didnt)

Good luck to everyone!
