Liminality?

I think it's normal to feel in limbo sometimes. For me, I always get this feeling of being in limbo when I am on the brink of a huge change. [Graduating]

Tonight, my good friend Sarah introduced me to a word that describes just that...

Liminality
(from the Latin word līmen, meaning "a threshold")
is a psychological, neurological, or metaphysical subjective, conscious state of being on the "threshold" of or between two different existential planes
Interesting.
