  •  The games we play with ourselves (6+ / 0-)

    Yes, I used to fail every exam I took in my head.  When we got to the conversation part of my quals, I was told that I didn't conclude any of the essays I had written. They let me write my dissertation anyway.

    •  Truth be told, I'm not *too* worried (4+ / 0-)

      I have two advantages: (1) All of my fields are fields that I am strongly interested in and already know fairly well. (2) I have lots of overlap between the fields, so fewer books to know.

      That's now, though...ask me next semester, and I'll probably be talking about applying for jobs in retail or waiting tables. :p

      I don't mind if you're straight. Just don't flaunt it in public.
