When I was still in high school, we call the act of exiting the room on the last day of exams as NIRVANA, or achievement of the state of liberation associated with Indian religions.
I took the third and FINAL part of my comprehensive examinations for graduate school this morning concerning my cognate subjects. Frankly, I was already at the point of saturation last night when I was dilly-dallying instead of reviewing hard. It was the strange feeling of already knowing something but unsure of whether you truly knew it — if that even made sense.
Awaiting execution: Plaid button-down shirt, black skinny pants, 8-hole Doc Martens with buckle and leather straps, Givenchy duffle bag
I just got word from my classmate last year that the written comprehensive examinations will take place on July 6, 13 and 20, 2012 — so that will be the first three Mondays of that month. Funnily enough that I only found out about it today and the memo was given last June 14, 2012. And to top it all, I have to send a letter asking for permission to take the exams due on Friday.
