If you had to eat a raw frog today, would you do it in the morning or keep putting it off?

    Eat before I go to bed so that it's the last thing I have to do today. Can't go around meeting people with frog-breath all day.

    When I was younger I would have said "first thing in the morning" but then other people would find a way to get an extension or get out of it and that would piss me off. Now I say, put it off as much as you can.

    Probably put it off for a bit, but then realize that these things also rot if you put it off for too long...

Just changed my signature to "already attending". I never thought I'd be doing so this year. Never give up.

Having one of those fun days where finding and ordering the resources I need for my project is starting to seem harder than the actual sciencing that I need them for...

After a long medical road starting in September, I've finally been diagnosed with GERD. Follow up with them next week and a sleep study in August. Grad school hit my body like a truck O.o

    It took over a year for my doctor to diagnose that I had GERD too. Very scary place to be in not knowing. Glad that you finally have an answer.

    Getting a diagnosis is really difficult, I'm glad you have an answer now. Good luck with treatment! Now you can focus on that instead of wondering if you're insane, dying, etc...

Moving to CO in 3 weeks, and my husband was finally offered a job yesterday. I'm so glad since I was responsible for his anxiety from having to find a new one since we're moving for my PhD program.

    Congrats! I am in a similar situation. My poor husband is traveling for interviews in our new home state on a weekly basis it seems!

    Good luck to him.

30 days until I'm supposed to move out and I still haven't found a place to live! >.< Going to school out of state is frustrating!

    Some apartment complexes I've seen only require 30 days notice that you're ending your rental contract, meaning that the apartments only go on the market 30 days before the move- in date. Keep looking.

    I am, and I'm starting to see places come up. Just frustrations because I've never lived outside of my state for an extended period of time. Thanks for the encouragement! :)

It's is weird that I have been on break for a month, and I am already anxious to start year 2? I still have another 2 months... I think I am going to read ahead.

  • ahlatsiawa's Photo
    It is always a good idea to read ahead.

    I think so too. I don't know what I am going to do with myself when school is officially done.

    For me attending part time the finish line seems so far away.

Still waiting on final word from grad school!

    yeah! I was recommended for admission a while ago, so if they expect me to start in the fall, I hope they get back to me soon!
