    Broke up with the guy I was seeing whoop! Perhaps I should write this in the positivity thread as it is a good thing

    My papers are excellent, I think? I feel proud of my research! Also, my boyfriend is literally the sweetest.

    It's final exams (papers, rather) season and I am super stressed about that (oddly less stressed than last semester, however; I know my writing process much better now and have started my research in advance. Professors were more proactive about demanding drafts in advance.) I feel like a machine. Concurrently, I am dating a very sweet, caring guy who has depression and who has difficult life circumstances and whom I am unable to help and that hurts. And to add to that, I'm feeling impostor syndrome so badly. One of my theory based courses is particularly challenging, and the professor has even mocked me for my contributions in class which only adds to my anxiety about not being good enough for academia. I haven't had time to chat with my family; my mom is sick but tells me she is doing better. Communication with the rest of them is not frequent. My apartment looks like a tornado passed through it. I get up in the morning, make a quick breakfast, go to the gym, eat something really quick, shower and spend all my evenings doing schoolwork. This is a lifestyle that people who are not in graduate school wouldn't understand--for them, work starts at 9 and ends at 5 (or at specific schedules.) For us, work is always with us. Even during breaks, you are supposed to consume knowledge like a beast. There is never a moment of rest.

    I've been a lil anxious tonight. Not exactly sure why--I had a scary health incident last week but physically I am now feeling better than ever.

    Yup, still around lol. How you've been at Penn? The program has been good, but intense at times. It's funny that I liked the fact that it was in a city but truly I have little time to explore the city anyway...oh well. But my neighborhood is really nice and the school too. Hope you guys do well this exam season! Happy to see you here again too @madamoiselle !

    Ford PreDissertation Fellowship 2018

    Hello everyone, I noticed there was no thread for the Ford fellowship for 2018. Also: does anyone know if the fellowship covers the entirety of a graduate program? I couldn't find any info on this on the website. I was interested in the Daisy Soros fellowship but since it only covers 2 years I preferred not to apply because a school could limit my funding and I could need that funding later.

    I don't wanna be mean to this guy who is into me but I seriously need to tell him that us hanging out doesn't mean we'll become more than friends.

    Guys I'm also available for any questions you might have! Should be writing a paper now but whatever. Also I believe WashU is not taking anybody next year and that's a bummer. Was looking forward to not being the newbie anymore lol.

    Furnishing an Apartment on a Budget?

    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone here had experience furnishing an apartment on a budget. August will be the first time I'll live in an apartment with furniture of my own, so I'm trying to think where I can find a cheap bed and mattress, table, chair, and maybe a couch. I'm thinking of flea markets/used goods stores, Craigslist and Facebook marketplace but I was wondering if anybody here had experience getting affordable furniture somewhere else. Thanks!

    I went on a date with a guy and he's cute and has a good heart. Not sure if it'll work out but for right now, I like him. I'm afraid of falling in love though.

    Oh no, I swear this was in page 100. Someone deleted their posts ? Anyway so the first week went okay I guess. I'm bad at talking to people but I seem to get along with some students. Le sigh. Nothing good came out of the bolded. Be safe everybody.

    So I moved and I am happy of course but the first few days are tough because I am lonely in a mostly empty apartment. I hooked up with a guy last night too and it was awful lol. Why am I such an awkward person? Page 100 of grown ups complaining about their lives. Yayyy!

    Moving on Tuesday and I haven't packed yet lol. I wanna take with me all my books, but space is so limited. Mainly because I am taking my mattress with me (yay for not sleeping on the floor of an empty, unfurnished apartment.)

    At 23 you think you've seen all mammals on Earth on TV and zoos and yet I have just found out about this animal called a civet. It looks like a weasel or raccoon with a long body and leopard spots. I'm so happy...apparently there's much to be found out about the world yet for me.

    Ugh, I have been gaining weight lately and it SUCKS. I know when I move I'll get it together and eat healthy, at home it's kind of...not possible. And during summer it's so hot I don't even feel like jogging or walking, the South is just that gross and humid at this time of the year.

    2 last days of this hellish job, whew. It taught me so much honestly. I met many people whose life stories were quite sad. I don't like capitalism and the way it deteriorates people's lives.

    My brother came out as bi. I love him and support him especially cause I'm gay myself but I am so so worried about my parents finding out (about both of us really lol). My dad....sigh....

    How Often Do Grad Students Get Paid?

    Hi everybody, So of course I know that this can vary for each university but typically: how often do grad students get paid? Monthly or bi-monthly? I have saved enough for my first month of rent and related expenses, but not enough yet for the second month. I was told that the first payment is due August 30, and it may be enough just to cover my rent but leaving me with no money for food and other expenses, unless the payment covers a whole month.
