Glad I got a 5.0 on my AWA but it's kind of a waste since I can't send a terrible Q score!

    Can I ask how much the Q score was?

    149 (37th percentile). Almost certain my retake will be better though!

I have Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" stuck in my head. Can there be anything worse??

    Oh boy can I relate to this. I began graduate school heavier than I would like and I was on a weight loss program, now that school has started my weight loss regime has gone down the drain. I can't make my Weight Watchers meetings and my eating is out of control. Hoping to get back on a system and not gain back all that I lost prior to starting school.

Is it odd that I still read threads, but then don't post? I generally read something and have a comment, and then I either get distracted, or I decide my point is too minor of a contribution. That and I often peruse while waiting on time points.

    I am in a similar boat. I tend to prefer reading to posting.

    Nice! I may do the same for my thesis. We expect funding to come in for a project and I wouldn't mind using that project for my thesis :)

    Buttons! and items of personal adornment. I still come up with my analysis, but a majority of the collection was done because it was supposed to be part of another dissertation, but she never got around to including it. And I'll be working on the report and may get my name as an author for that. Double-win!

    This has always been reviewer #1 for me. I just spent $2000 running an experiment that I knew would yield a non-result because the reviewer insisted *twice* and refused to accept our explanation. So, time+money wasted, but hopefully we can finally get this thing published. YAY science.

    And for the paper I'm reviewing, I am trying to be as friendly and helpful as I can. I want this work to be published, I just want it to be convincing first.
