Oh hello there! I just thought I’d stop by and remind everyone that I still exist. Hope the new year is treating everyone well!
The last time I was here I was freaking out about my upcoming candidacy exam. Well, I’m happy to announce that I passed! 😀 I am officially a PhD candidate! And, I also have the great news of announcing that I won an NSF fellowship too! 😀 It’s a pretty good month if I don’t say so myself. Now if only my instrument and data would agree and give me nice results. O:
Anyway, as I’m trying to get back into the swing of things, my posting schedule may be a little bit hectic. I’m hoping that I’ll get an actual blog post up by next week talking about some of the grad school pro tips I’ve accumulated across this crazy adventure. I am also planning to talk about proposal writing, literature reviews, how to make a good powerpoint for a science talk and how to create a great NSF application packet!
Any objections? Or anything in particular you want me to talk about? Let me know! I hope to be back to (non-academic) writing soon enough.

Congratulations!!! A guidance on lit review would be great. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next. Welcome back.:D:D
Congratulations! =) Yup, something on lit review and proposal writing would be super helpful atm.
Congrats!! And I’m also happy to here that you’re back. I have to say that your blog is helping me through my own PhD candidature. I’m in the process to apply to a couple of Scholarships in Ireland and I enjoy reading your post. Keep the good work and we (your audience) will be here for when you find the time, no pressure!
*sorry, I got a misspell (swap here for hear).It’s killing me that I can’t edit my comment!
