So, I made it through the qualifying exam process, it was actually not as bad as I thought it would be. The time constraint of only 8h was rough but I felt like I was focused and in the zone most of the time. The anticipation is worse.
In general, I think it always is! For instance this semester is going ok even though I felt much anxiety leading up.
Maybe it is the nice weather that I am enjoying every minute of!
So far I passed 2 quals and am waiting to here back on the 3 others.
