Experiencing a Nesting Spell

You know how pregnant women tend to begin "nesting" before the birth of their children? They'll have this overwhelming urge to clean / organize their entire dwelling before they bring their babies home. No, I'm not announcing that I'm pregnant, but I have been experiencing a serious nesting spell of sorts. Nesting, in my opinion, is best defined as the tendency to arrange one's immediate surroundings, such as a work station, to create a place where one feels secure, comfortable, or in control. I honestly think this may be my way of coping with the nervous excitement I feel about starting school on Tuesday. It makes sense.

Over the last couple weeks I have been so focused on getting everything in order around the house before my classes start up. I find myself waking up earlier than usual and using any free time that I have to deep clean different parts of the house. I have tackled all of the laundry (almost every single day), cleaned out the clutter from our home office, tidied up my desk + vanity area, reorganized my closet / dresser drawers (on numerous occasions). I feel like I have to have everything in perfect order before I hit the ground running with my studies. Is this odd, or have any of you experienced this as well? I feel like I still have so much to do to prepare.

I have even been trying to nest on social media. I happily went off the grid when it came to Facebook. I tried to deactivate it, but there are too many apps that use my Facebook account as my log-in info (like Cartwheel). My account was reactivated as soon as I logged into those apps (which is kind of annoying). So, earlier this afternoon I simply posted that I won't be checking it going forward and told people not to assume I'm being a douche-bag if I don't respond to them. I also deleted my Twitter about 10 days ago. It's like I'm trying to clean up all the things, haha. I don't want any distractions. I'm sure this little phase will run its course, eventually.
