I have recently been emailed by my university (and told by my sup) that I'm going above the download quota which is a measly 300MB a month and for someone who is at the university everyday it's ridiculous. I actually went over it last month and had $50 taken from my "individual research fund" :-s
So I was just wondering what your individual internet usage quota is for your university?
Ps: 3 words starting with q in the title is pretty impressive btw ,-)
I wrote my lit review as an inverted pyramid start general and narrow it down with specific reference to your angle and contribution. In this sense the main theory should integrate nicely as you tell the "story" of your research and the previous research you have encountered, make it flow rather than having 1 blocks for each theory. I hope this makes sense :)
Nah you would never be expected to read everything in your bibliography, I'm sorry to say but that would be impossible. The secret is to skim read and take only what you need, using titles or contents pages. Don't worry if you think you have missed something important because if it is indeed important it will come up in the majority of papers you will read in the future!

As what I have said in pretty much a sum of this
I also started my PhD at a young age, 23 to be precise and I have also heard various comments, not so much in regard to my life experience being a disadvantage, but about the fact that I'm wasting my youth (makes me sad to write that lol). However, I have always maintained that a PhD in an interesting area is a good way to spend your youth, opposed to joining the 9-5 rat race in pursuit of a home or any other financial "ball and chains".
Another advantage is that a PhD is a great qualification to travel with and during!
I find this quite intriguing, as a person who has moved away from home (all friends and family) and is stuck doing it alone in a new city, I often dream of having a partner for support in this, at times, challenging task. However, your post makes me think that it could be worse, as I do have support from home, albeit 1000's of Kilometres away.
I think ultimately, if you value the experience and it means something to you then your partner should be supportive. Maybe she doesn't see it that way? I would try to explain the situation to her in these terms and she what she has against it.
Lol this is the definition of trolling (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=trolling) people who use the internet and especially forums should know better than to feed the troll
