  1. I am sorry to hear about this! I hope they can come up with something so it doesn't really mess up your programs.
  2. Good luck everyone! I am finally back in the fray. I have replaced the two committee members I am losing and and thrilled with them. These two are taking over my major and minor areas, which this late in the program is a big step. The major area/chair prof is my Native American lit professor, who I have worked with a lot. The new minor area is a wonderful professor I've known since I started grad school. Both are very enthusiastic and very hands on/involved, especially since I'll be prepping for comps to be taken in the fall. I'm majorly relived and actually excited about things again. I
  3. I SO dislike those precise word limits. In an intro art history course once, the TA marked a paper down from an A to a B because I ran over like 20 words. I wanted to start throwing desks.
  4. There will always be other classes. You did the best thing. Take care of yourself and wishing you the best!
  5. That would drive me nuts, especially not putting things up till Tuesday. LEt me guess, that Monday can't be used as the 'end of the week' beause stuff is due Sunday?
  6. Glad things are off to a great start Ethel! As for exams, Debbie, just pace yourself. It will be stressful, but you'll get through it πŸ™‚ As for me, well y'all know of the committee implosion. I decided to take this semester off so I have time to reorganize it and figure out if I need to pick a new focus/direction, since the professor overseeing my general dissertation idea is the one who left in June. Classes start here on Monday and already it feels weird that I won't have any.
  7. I agree with Mom22ns. Graduate degrees/writing that thesis/dissertation take passion in the topic and sounds like you have that fit.
  8. I get the fear that comes with comps. I decided to delay mine while I figure out what the heck is going on with my committee and whether this means a big direction change for me. I'm likely taking the semester off.
  9. Thanks! I'm taking Fall semester off while I sort this all out. I'm going to delay comps till spring.
  10. He's got some leads, one with the manager of a department his group was in before they were moved πŸ™‚ There are even more changes. I got another email....another member of my committee is leaving to go take over the film department at Univ. of Utah, leaving end of June. The big thing is that the dissertation topic idea we've been planning is his area of expertise. I spent a few days pretty lost and still am, sort of. It's really rare for a committee to blow up like this but it's a big deal. At this point, I'm thinking of taking the semester off completely while I regroup. I can delay the exams a
  11. What a difference a week or 2 makes! My summer plans have changed radically. J (hubby) was working as full time IT staff but on contract. The IT dept on campus has reorganized several times int eh last year (don't even get me started on this) and his group has been part of 4 different areas in a year. Now, they are consolidating, so his contract wasn't renewed. Granted, he thinks it was due to the fact he hasn't graduated yet and does not have his official degree, but that doesn't change our situation. It was like the first domino falling. Because of this, we had to drop the mortgage loan we h
  12. Yay, Congrats!! That's awesome and well-deserved πŸ™‚ πŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈπŸŽˆ
