Welcome Tamara! As another grad student in the final phases of the PhD (I'm writing up my dissertation), I can definitely sympathize with you! Be sure to drink plenty of water while you're studying, and take frequent breaks to stretch and move around. Don't reach for the junk food just because you're bored or aggravated -- have lots of fresh fruit and other healthy foods near by.

Good luck with your studies! Welcome to the group.

Thanks! I probably have 1-2 years left (so I will be done somewhere between May 2009 and May 2010) but it all really depends on how long it takes to run my dissertation study and then write it up. this, of course, is assuming i pass generals :)

Welcome, Tamara! Glad you joined us. :) You're a 4th year, so almost done, right?

Hello Everyone,

I'm a 4th year (as of this month, YIKES!) doctoral student in industrial and organizational psychology at the University of Oklahoma. I have general exams coming up in the fall and I know (given my tendencies under stress) that if I don't work on my healthy habits now, there will be no hope come the crunch time of studying for and taking the exams. I am glad there is a community of other grad students on here and look forward to meeting goals with yall!
