I wrote here almost exactly a year and a half ago to say that I was starting school again.
I’m writing now to say that I’m [hopefully] about to finish school.
My last exam starts in less than half an hour (ARGH!).
It’s an oral defence of my thesis, followed by a whole lot of questions.
By midday, I’ll know if I passed….
See you on the other side! 🙂

Hope it went very well and you passed with “flying colours”
🙂 thank you again 🙂
I have no idea what colours I got, and even less idea about their flying prowess… They send our actual results out in the post. Directly after the presentation/defence they can only tell us if we passed or not. I have no idea why. Presumably they have to listen to everyone before deciding what grades to hand out…
I am happy to have passed, happy that it’s all over, happy that I have no more responsibilities hanging over me than to go to work occasionally and pay my rent (and other bills). I have time for all the things I haven’t done for a long time, and can decide for myself if I want to do them 🙂 🙂
Good luck -except I am sure it has nothing to do with luck and lots to do with study and preparedness.
Um… Thank you 🙂
I’m not sure what I think about luck… I think I was as prepared as I could be in the circumstances, though a lot (a very lot) more more would have been possible if they’d been different circumstances (or less, I suppose).. Maybe the specific set of circumstances is based on luck? Probably no more than partially; I’m the one who’s supposed to be responsible for what I do.. Maybe having answers for what the examiners ask is lucky? Maybe none of it is…
I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m rambling 🙂 🙂 🙂 I have just woken up after 9+ hours sleep, and I am aware of still not making much sense. I suspect it might take a couple of weeks….
How are you anyway?
🙂 Rambling is fine – I do it all the time. I am fine thanks, moving into Spring here, so more sunshine and warm weather which makes me happy. What about you?
