Taking oral exams in grad school is really a terrible experience. Even if you pass, it’s absolutely emotionally draining and it’s nearly impossible to do as well as you’d hoped..
Our friend M took her Quals recently (and passed, of course!!) and then came over to our place that evening to decompress. The picture above shows her curled up with a purry Bobette-kitty, letting the anxiety of the day drain away.
Isn’t it great how cats and friends and cozy purple couch can make it all better?
