Day 3, I'M DONE!

So tired

Didn’t think I’d be this tired

Finished the 3rd exam a half hour early. Couldn’t write anymore. Think I did well though.

Strangely enough, I kinda appreciate this whole rite of passage now…for so many in academe, we protect our research ideas and can slip into a cocoon, never having to defend these ideas until the dissertation defense. These exams make me feel a little smarter now—assuming I passed—because someone is actually grading my on-the-spot interpretations of key concepts.

Maybe I’m talking nonsense because I am so tired, but I’m sure some of you out there know what I mean.

  1. Congratulations Daisy– I start my exams the week after CCCC so seeing you go through it and finish (and pass–of course you passed!) in one piece is comforting…

    Now go treat yourself to something!

  2. Thanks ladies! I’ve been treating myself to sleep and then a baseball game and steak dinner today. This week is Spring Break so I have the whole week to catch up on stuff I’ve been putting off, and -of course- to treat myself even more!

    My exam committee is emailed my answers and I think it’s just however long it takes them to read through things. I’m guessing 2 weeks or so, or maybe because they’re all going to CCCCs too it might be before then!

  3. Not nonsense at all. Congratulations, grrl! The only sad part– you know more right now than you have ever known and more than you will ever know again. The knowledge leak begins….
