the only earth?


I've pretty much decided to dedicate the weekend to studying for the prelim exam. It's in a week and a half and I need to pass if I want to hang around to get a PhD. So, I guess it's important enough not to completely neglect.

The weather turned nice this afternoon, so I tried to run to get at least a little fresh air. It was warm and I was feeling very under-nourished/motivated/etc; so it wasn't much fun.

I really don't have any study skills. How that's possible after spending my life in the educational system, I don't know.
