  1. Job offer accepted, now it's time to defend my dissertation and GTFO :D

  2. 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.

  3. 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

      Urgh, sympathy. Glad you got a diagnosis though.

  4. Would you self-cite your own work?

    1. St Andrews Lynx

      St Andrews Lynx

      "Previous methods developed by our group..." are found in nearly all chem papers I've seen. It's more contextualisation than self-promotion, usually.

  5. What would you do if you realized some of your colleagues are doing junk science... ?

    1. St Andrews Lynx

      St Andrews Lynx

      ...Be 100% sure that your own science is stellar, groundbreaking and water-tight before criticizing them?

      Go to sleep. Have a relaxing day doing stuff you enjoy. Then study on the day of the test. Use the short-term memory. ;)

      Apparently Nature Chem takes ~6 months to get back to submitters with an editorial decision. Hope you hear news quickly!

  13. How do I get my energy back? I just feel like I want to sleep all the time even on weekends when I can sleep in a little longer. I have 0 energy.

    1. St Andrews Lynx

      St Andrews Lynx

      Eating a balanced diet - lots of fruit, veg & wholewheat carbs. Low energy might be a sign of iron deficiency, so eat lots of red meat/leafy veg. Then drink plenty of water.

    1. St Andrews Lynx

      St Andrews Lynx

      If you came into grad school knowing everything & being perfect at everything...you shouldn't be in grad school! Make each assignment just that little bit more awesome. ;)

  16. postdocs and grad students are the modern slaves and should be protected by laws

    1. St Andrews Lynx

      In my university the TAs and Research Assistants are part of the academic's union - along with the adjunct staff too, which is rather good. Part of the problem is that American labour laws are a lot less protective than European ones across the board (e.g., maternity/paternity leave, holiday allowances, ease of firing employees).

    1. St Andrews Lynx

      Given the amount of sh*t I've had to put up with over the years, I'd say to count your blessings that you are *not* a woman in the physical sciences.
