Which we all know can feel like an eternity.

Remember to relax and have some fun too.

TREAT YO SELF. Whether that's binge watching netflix, going out to the bar, or having a date with your two favorite guys: Ben and Jerry.

When it finally comes time to look at the cast lists, remember to breathe.
