4 down, 1 to go
On Monday I turned in my 4th qualifying exam. Even though it wasn't hard, I procrastinated and had to do most of the work on the last day. Needless to say, the kids gave me a tough night, so I was exhausted. And it was P1's turn to sleep in, so I had the kids glued to me in the morning too. On top of that I didn't feel well all day. Recipe for disaster. It took me most of the day, but eventually I did get all the articles I had to read summarized and all questions answered by 7 pm. I never did re-read it. I just published it to pdf and sent it on its way. For better or worse. I'm now waiting on my last (written) exam. I still have an oral exam in February, and then, hopefully, this torture will be over. The last exam will be the toughest one by far. For now, I'm enjoying the pleasure of doing research. It's a nice change.
I am a mother of three kids, a wife, a post-doctoral scientist, carpenter, cleaning lady, gardener, electrician, and probably a few other things that are required to keep my household running. This blog is about my adventures in life, and an outlet for my thoughts.
