Just try to relax, and think abou the particular thing you are doing in that moment. Its a huge decision, and its one of those life altering ones. Focus on your wedding, on your hobbies, or whatever you want to focus on, and try to leave this entire thing alone for a bit. You will feel much better, and be able to digest all of the information, emotions and whatnot that you have been feeling and hearing for the past few weeks or days or so.
The reason I want to decide soon are:
1. My fiance wants to figure out his future. If I choose FSU he's going to take the GMAT and apply for one of the masters in business programs. Illinois and UF- he knows he wouldn't get accepted to either of them so he wouldn't waste the time/money. He will work and wait until I graduate and THEN get his MBA/Masters.
2. Housing. I am very, very, very picky about where I live and need to find a nice place, and know that in college towns the earlier the better. I am completely uncomfortable if I don't find the perfect place.
3. My wedding is in May, and we haven't registered yet because if we are moving to Illinois, we are going to do something I consider kind of rude and tell people of they want to give us something-- a gift card or money because we can't afford to bring all our shit. If we stay in FL, I can have a normal wedding registry.
4. Honeymoon. I can afford to take a honeymoon after my wedding if and only if I don't have to afford the move/travel to Illinois.
Some of those may seem shallow or something, but they are pretty important to me
