i have temporarily exiled myself to the island of non-bloggers BUT...
I passed part II of the comprehensive exam.
I would like to thank my kick-ass study group and lenient exam graders.
Now that stress is out of the way, I can concentrate on the "oh, I've been trying to build an application for the last two weeks" stress, plus paper-writing stress, plus PhD applications stress. The "application" at the beginning of that sentence? That would be application in the "online service for the masses" kind of thing that I do as my actual job.
Stressy stress stress stressful.
But hey! I passed both comps so there you go.
EDITED TO ADD: I finally heard from my group members. We went 4 for 4 on part I and 4 for 4 on part II. Best study group EVER!!!!
