is a doctorate worth one's life?

I wouldn't think so. Others would disagree. Another failed qualifying exam and a friend took his life. He was 26, a good bit younger than me.

I'm thinking of Shawn today--How he's still my best friend even though we're hundred of miles apart. I hope he does well on his qualifying exam that he's probably taking right now. Today is also his birthday. He turns 30.

That's so sad - I hope your other friend did well.

We weren't that close, but it does bug me. One friend who's anorexic, one who is chronically depressed and one who killed himself. Man, I feel like the stable one. :(

I'm still waiting for Shawn's results. I think he passed to be honest, but he doesn't want to jinx himslef.
