Said exam is exactly one week from today. I turned in my proposals to my committee members today and now all that's left is to relearn everything that I've ever learned about anything in chemistry and prepare my presentations to go along with my two proposals.
No big deal.
So the last week has been really stressful with my practice talks and finishing up my papers (and not getting a lot of sleep because I have had to basically rewrite one of my proposals in 48ish hours) and I had to do something depressing.
I had to put away my rotary cutting mat from my "kitchen table" (that I almost never eat at unless I have company, so it's basically my sewing table) so that I could DO WORK at the table. This is what I suffer through to get a Dr. before my name.
