This blog is designed to keep my friends and family updated on what I do. It's a keyhole into the day to day goings on of my life.

Just a thought on the torture that has taken over my life right now. Why are they called comprehensive exams? One would think that the exam would cover your knowledge based on what you've learned so far...right? Not assign you book lists where 20 of the 30 or so books are completely new to you. Nevermind the fact that you have to review the books that you have read and make new notes condensing things down. Now times that fun by 3. Because I have 3 committee members each assigning me a set of essay questions on the day of the exam. Yay!
Oh yeah...and it doesn't help that I am a professional procrastinator. :-D
I'm a happily married archivist/mom/wife. I love stitching and cooking delicious meals! I hate to exercise but I devote much time and research into being healthy. My newest obsession is our first home!
