upcoming hiatus - PhD candidacy!

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 20, 2014, 8:44 AM


Hey guys! I know I haven't really been active this last month anyway, but I just want to give you guys a heads up that I'll be going on a long hiatus starting in about a week until Mid January (so like 2 months)
This is because I'm going through.....................CANDIDACY~!Fool Emoji-37 (Waving and Crying) [V3] 

Now I'm sure most people don't know what this is, but it's basically a big exam in graduate school.


It varies for every major in every department in every school, but in my case you get a scientific problem that hasn't been fully solved before and you get a month to propose how to approach the problem. There's a written report, but the real scary part is the presentation.

Basically, you get thrown in a room with 3 professors for an hour and a half and you have to 1) present your proposal and 2) answer any question that the professors throw at you. They are free to ask literally anything from derivations of a fundamental theorem to describing how a characterization equipment works (i.e. electron microscopes), so we are really recommended to read a bunch of text books to prepare. It is literally the most stressful and scary thing we go through to get our PhD.

To put it into perspective how important this is, about 1/3 of the students fail every semester, and if a student fails twice they are kicked out of the program (and we're all like 2~3 years into our PhD studies already). I have a friend who was grilled so hard with questions that she burst out crying the minute she left the presentation room. I have friends who thought they nailed it and failed. I have friends who've failed twice and she now has no idea what she's going to do. In addition, in my case I'm the only student working on my sponsored project in my lab; meaning that I can't just focus on the exam and not do any work because then we literally have no work to show at our meetings.


ANYYYY HOOOOO

I'll be going through this stressful thing and hope to come out of it with a pass (I will legitimately cry if I fail), so I'll be mostly dead online. Of course, drawing is some stress relief and I'm participating in a secret santa so I'll slowly work on that, but until then I can't provide much stuff for you guys.

Hope you guys understand! 

Some artsu

DID YOU KNOW THAT there's no nobel prize for mathematics because Mr. Nobel who set it up had his wife leave him for a mathematician so he was like SCREW ALL MATHEMATICIANS
