Just Passed the Dept Qualifying Exam!!! I am not going to tell you it was easy. It was a Hell. I went through Hell this afternoon. Four people in my commitee. I was being examined of three areas: Fluid Mechanics, Turbulent Flow, and Physical GasDynamics. Tough. The business of the Partition Function, a Plane Supersonic Turbulent Jet, a Dust Devil, and Shock Waves come on to the board randomly. I think I showed that my pillars are made of concrete. And that's why I am happy. Now I'm Ph.D. in Candidacy, and what's better, earning hundred bucks more per month, that's good stuff!!!. You are witnessing my progression here, aren't you?. I told you when I ended my undergrad, I told you when I came, and I keep on updating you about my adventures in USA.
