getting it together

Well, it's pretty much set. I'm sitting for Comps. in December. I informed my committee; everyone agrees it's doable. This makes me nervous but I need to get my shit together and get on with it. Talked to a grad student today who's been here longer than I have. He asked about my progress in the program. We determined that I am about a semester "behind." I asked him how long it took him to finish/defend his proposal because I want to do it in a semester. He asked about my particular committee and when I told him he replied that it could take some time because they'll probably put me through the ringer. I don't really disagree with him but I do think that my advisors understand timelines and the fact that I don't know if I'll be around next year.
