another year older, so that surly means another year wiser

Oy, yesterday was my big birthday, 35. I've been dreading this birthday for some time, 35!!!...However, the closer it got to being here, the prouder I became to say that I was turning that age.

Interesting time last night. A friend who I have not seen since 1995 came up to stay with me. we reconnected on Facebook back in March and he and I talk everyday. Weird how the world works.

In other news, comps and orals did not go so well. Orals was the most horrific experience, ever. Horrible. It was only supposed to last 45 minutes, mine was one hour and six minutes of pure interrogation hell. Not at all what I was expecting...the others was just as bad, not just me being grilled. Has anyone been through this process? I'm just curious as to what others experiences have been.

Anyway, my question is: I'm not sure I want to re-take the portions I have to re-do. The thought of it is very daunting to say the least and the twitch that has been in my left eye for the past few months has moved to my left cheek, quite annoying. So, my question: does anyone know what the difference would be between "masters degree" versus "masters degree candidate" on a resume and interview process?

Any help would be appreciated. I want out of this town. And yes, of course, I have gone back and forth and forth and back over and over all of this and cycled through all the emotions about 46 times since Wednesday night.

Happy birthday love!

You've come this far. Seriously.

Masters Degree. Take the steps forward and make it happen. Everyone I know who has obtained their Masters has likened it to a trip through Hell and back. Don't make the trip twice. Buy the ticket, take the ride. :-)

Happy belated birthday - this year will be better than the last, I'm certain of it. :o) I hope you had a wonderful one and spent it having fun, at least part of the time!

I would definitely say go for the degree. You've made it this far, you can DEFINITELY push through a little tiny bit further.

And unrelated to your post - thanks for your kind words on my blog. It realy brightened my day. :o)

My bad. I'm several days late at passing along the birthday wishes. Hope it was great and filled with many a fermented beverage.

Here's my 2-cents (Canadian, of course) on the degree question:

What do you plan on doing with a Master's degree? Are you getting it to get a better job or are you doing all this simply because you enjoy learning?

If it's job-related only, then I'd say forget it. Anyone can climb the corporate ladder without having several degrees to their name.

If you simply enjoy the subject matter, then carry on, MacDuff, and stop stressing over it.

Easy for me to say.
