Geronimo!!!

I've jumped off the cliff - literally in my mind. The emails requesting availability for my comprehensives have been set. It looks like it'll be in July sometime. Shitting bricks as I type this. In utter and complete panick mode!!!!!

WOOHOO! The wheels are in motion, and just think how awesome it's going to feel when you can put this behind you and actually get on with the fun parts of a PhD...

Take some long hard deep breaths. This is actually the best time of the PhD. Imagine spending all day just reading and thinking about science without having to worry about experiments!

Cath - I think it'll feel awesome if I pass. Yes I know I need to work on that whole confidence thing

Alyssa - thanks!

GPD - When I first started in science, I used to love reading and thinking about science - it was what I was good at. Now that I'm in a lab where I've learned really good technique and am really good the bench stuff, its what I like to do. As I read, I"m thinking about experiments I should be doing and just want to do them and get the result to see if hypothesis is correct, if i'm on the right path etc..
