After spending the weekend camping in the woods it's back to reality and a couple of somewhat intense sick days. Even though camping has mellowed considerably with age (we've been going as a group for 25 years now), I apparently still need recoup time afterward. I drink very little at camping these days, and yet yesterday felt as though I'd just spent three days partying like it was 1989.

So my goal for today is to spend at least some time studying. My preliminary exams are exactly one month away, which makes me a little anxious. Worst case scenario if I do not pass: I retake them in January. Life will go on regardless, but it would be nice to pass and move on as an official 'PhD candidate'.  Wish me luck!
