I feel like a scientist
Today, I passed my qualifying exams and I am officially a PhD candidate (the last step before one attains a PhD).

It hasn't been the easiest past few months but I can also look forward to an eventual release of my first publication as a first author and another co-authored publication.

Today, I feel like a real scientist.

And I have nearly had an entire bottle of crown royal in celebration. So I apologize for my grammar!

Geology. Specifically geochemistry and paleoclimates. My time interval of interest is currently the late Devonian extinction of the Frasinain-Famennian boundary.

Congratulations, almost a scientist. Thumbsup

RE: I feel like a scientist
I was going to say "gosh, they'll hand those out to anyone"

But no, this is really a huge deal dude.

Congrats!


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

It would seem that the criteria are a bit lax for who does and does not qualify
