PhD Comprehensive Exams.
It has been more stressful than:
- Having a child.
- Getting a divorce.
- Planning my re-marrying.
If you ever enter a PhD program, don’t do these^ things first because having a deployed husband and a 4 year old during this process is something akin to hell.
That is all. Just needed to vent since no one IRL can understand.

@aliavenue: Oh no! 🙁 I remember my doctoral comps and they were not fun, and I didn’t have any of the things on your list – I hope that you find a chance to relax, even with all that’s happening in your life. Best of luck to you on your comprehensive exams!

Hahaha, if all goes according to plan, I’ll be knocked up during my comps. At least I’ll have an excuse if I puke during orals. 😉
Are you done with them? If so, congrats! If not, just keep swimming!! Good luck!
