    Interesting @ changes to the GRE... I did think the vocab was pretty stupid! I don't understand the 'memorized' answers to writing prompts though - I certainly had no idea what they were going to ask me. I got a perfect score though! wooooooot

    Congrats!!! When I was an undergrad, it was strange to be able to call professors by their first names, and it was very rare. They were certainly professor or doctor or what not. When I was in graduate school a lot went by their first names which was nice. I was still calling them Dr. so and...

    HAHA! In high school... we have the luxury of just TAKING the cell phone from them! It's pretty sweet! I don't know @ the avatar... I just thought it was a cute pic lol! And yes, I know they aren't the same species... I don't even know if the pic is real or if it was photoshopped or...

    That's a terrific approach! LOL @ "desk-side manner"! That's an awesome phrase! Scary to think that even ivy league students aren't able to write... we're working our asses off trying to teach them in high school... the kids have to care though! :doh:

    That's unfortunate! I've been discriminated against for being blonde... one physics professor in particular didn't take me seriously at all. It was so frustrating considering I was in two of his classes and they were both junior/senior level physics. Obviously I had made it that far SOME how...

    Awh, the universe and stars are super awesome! It's so much fun to ponder the fate of the universe when you look up at the stars rather than just look for the big dipper. And, my thesis is in science education and the advancement of women through high school --> college --> graduate degree...

    I have been told I was "too smart"; it's just a cop-out. Such a totally lame excuse. If I can hang with my 8th grade students, teach gymnastics to 2 year olds as well as teach Earth Science to college students then there's no reason someone should feel overwhelmed. It's not as though I sit...

    What's wrong with astrophysics over breakfast? I have a bachelor's degree in astrophysics and am finishing my master's in Earth science this summer; I'll be done with the secondary education program in a few weeks as well!

    Sitting down on a couch/bed and putting a pillow on your lap to hide the belly! I'm totally guilty of this but it just makes that area even more padded lol! And yes, it's for self-conscious reasons!
