Written Prelim Hell!

In some doctoral programs, students study for weeks on end and then go spend a day writing essay exams. I should be so lucky! In my program, I get towrite a 30 page case study policy analysis of my own choosing, as long as I address the five broad issues (loosely framed by my faculty). While I have no doubt that I will be eternally grateful for having completed this project at some unspecified point in the future (because it could lead into my dissertation??), I am currently in a state of sheer and utter panic!

I could try to remember to breathe now and then. I could try to stop feeling the urge to keep reading random things just in case they need to get added in to the paper. I could stop worrying about being perfect and start thinking that "revise and resubmit" doesn't sound so bad. Does it?

Tineye.com has been doing this for years. I think they were the original little startup that did reverse image exploring, and they're very good way too. Also bad google didn't buy them, or maybe it's their fault for not selling.

My dream retirement involves traveling domestically and internationally to get the job done on environmental causes.

Heck if you are a lung cancer get the checkups. That may be unless you seriously never treatment. I remember when i was a kid there were cigarettes called death. They had a skull and crossbones on them. At least it's honest.
