Shhhh....pretend I am not really here....if they come looking for me, I'm not here....
I'm currently procrastinating studying for a while. My "PhD cumulative exams" (we'll call 6010's) are starting soon. When you dream up the hair-brained scheme of getting your PhD, one of the things you have to do is take a series of exams to show that you have learned everything. This is what I call another "weeding out" point in the grad school gauntlet, the last one being writing and actually defending your dissertation.
As some of you know, I switched from Inorganic to Organic chemistry. (If you don't know why, buy me a beer and I will tell ya about it....it starts with boys are stupid.) The first of these exams is to judge your worthiness to take these (stupid) tests. I have learned that my is Friday.....and I learned this TODAY!!! Granted, I will be plenty prepared, but it does cut you up a bit short to learn that this "all important" exam is in three days.
So, I am blogging....mainly because I can type without looking, seeing as my eyes have gone to pot from reading too much organic chemistry.....the chemists understand.
