Going Underground

Just a quick note about the next couple of weeks.

Tomorrow, Friday, I'm heading out to New York to spend my birthday (which is on Monday -- I'll be 31, yay!) with my best friend. I'll be back in Chicago on Tuesday. Comps begin on Friday, September 7th, at 9 in the morning, and continue for a full week, until Friday, September 14th, at 12:15, at which point, I am going to flop down on my bed and either sleep or scream, depending on how Comps went. rhobike informs me that the Illinois Convention is the 15th and 16th. I want to go, in a sort of abstract way, but I have no idea whether or not I'll be coherent enough to do it.

The point of all of this is twofold. First of all, if I seem to vanish for the next couple of weeks, rest assured, I'm not dead, just in the seventh circle of academic hell. Second, any good vibes sent my way for Comps will be treasured.

Good luck! I hope all goes well, and you survive the next few weeks of hell.

Early Happy Birthday wishes! Have a great trip.

And have fun with your comps:) (DH told me to have fun when I went to take the GREs, so I always tell people that now when they are facing some big daunting test.)

Enjoy your weekend and happy early birthday, lest one of us is not around (which seems probable ;) for me to wish you properly on Monday!

1. Happy Birthday! Spending your birthday in New York with a friend sounds like a great time.

2. Don't worry; all the same petpicspam and snark will still be here when you get back.

3. You'll do great on your comps. Don't spend a second worrying about them when you should be having fun.

Happy Birthday to you! You're in my new of the woods when you're in New York. (Well, about 2 and a half hours away if you go the city...) Enjoy yourself! And good luck with getting through your "circle of academic hell" if I don't talk to you before all that.
