Silent ERV

Im in like... my 20th year of school now.

You would think that by this point I would start studying earlier for tests.

Alas, Im not that clever, so another block of test this week, and another week of all-nighters (You might be a grad student if... #105-- Youre genuinely angry Red Bull isnt sold in 2 liter bottles).

So this week youve got a silent ERV :P

Ill be in the clear this weekend, though, and I gots lots of neat stuff to share (hint-- it will involve LAZERS!!). But for now, please enjoy piccies of deh puppah!!

I feel the same pain. Exams don't start for a week or two, but why oh why did I not start working on this presentation and that paper last month, and where can I get more coffee?

Luckily my exams tend to align as often as the planets. This semester I've gotten 1-2 week breaks between each exam :D

Not to rub it in or anything..

At least you're making something of yourself, by god! You've already earned the respect of many heavy-hitters in the scientific community, even if most aren't directly involved in your field. That's more than can be said for most people, even post-grads.


I'd rather not say anything about the failure I am at this moment in time with all my supposed "edumacation", so I'll just make some more snarky comments about how pit bulls are four-legged eating machines that will turn on you at the drop of a hat. (hope you don't have any hats), and get back to studying! Arrrrr....

In my final semester of grad school with only two classes, I have exactly 0 exams.

**puts thumbs to cheeks, waves fingers and gives you the raspberry**

What's to study? Just write 'a wizard did it' as your answer for everything. Seriously though, grad school classes aren't supposed to be hard and don't matter all that much (except if you need a recommendation letter form someone who doesn't actually know you). Don't kill yourself over exams...and don't let your cells overgrow either.

Hey ERV,

I'm gonna make the drive down to that neck of the woods some day. Hopefully, you won't be too disappointed if I want spend all my time with yer pup. =) He's adorable...

Cheers,
Lane

DO NOT check out PZ's site. And stay off the blogosphere entirely. There is another hilarious episode which would distract you from your studies. It would weigh down my conscience if I hadn't warned you.

Just don't pray for any more weather incidents to buy you more time. I am still picking up branches from the December ice storm that you inflicted on the Norman area.

Or else......

The Factician said...

Yep, the only thing you'll ever use your grad school grades for is for fellowship applications. And even those, your research proposal is *much* more important.

Don't kill yourself. A's and B's at this point are the same.

It's a hard shift - for the first 16 years of education, grades matter. In grad school (in science at least) all you need to do is pass.

I wish exams were in the form of interpretive pipetting.

I like your blog and read it frequently, but rarely post.

I don't mean to be picky, because I suspect you know, but LAZER is spelled LASER, unless the acronym has changed in the last 40 years, or you are referring to something other than a collimated beam of light.

Remember, life may be a bitch, Arnie is not.

[Actually I'm not sure that makes you happier. But at least I try to reserve sexist language for jokes.]

or you are referring to something other than a collimated beam of light

Both actually, since ERV can haz cheezburgers for deh puppah, but lasers for the lab.

Don't worry, you will be talking nerd in no time.
