Two great resources about virtual world identity

Life as a PhD student

Although PhD students are suppose to exhibit an air of professionalism and confidence, I want to open up and say that I am scared out of my wits. I have been through all my course work, and am about ready to start my comps. However, I still question whether I am up to this. I believe other PhD students are experiencing this as well. Yet, it is often not discussed or shared among the academic community.

I hope that I am able to complete my comprehensive exams successfully. I am still worried, but for now, I'll take it as is and not stress about it. God help me!
