Last weekend I spent all my time writing my comprehensive exams. *I had the weekend to answer 3 questions in 21 typed pages. Everyone must pass their comprehensive exams in order to get their degree.*
It was a blast. It was so much fun! There is nothing better than a weekend full of exams to make you feel relaxed.
I must admit. It is nice to have them behind me. At one point I went a bit loopy... I think I hadn't been eating real food for too long... and was probably relying a little too heavily on the the snack foods.
In the end, I kept on keeping on, despite the dizziness and scattered thoughts... and at 1am Monday morning it was all over.
I was so happy to be done. Let me rephrase that... I felt giddy to be done. I was so giddy I came up with a "hilarious" idea. My idea was to write a note saying, "Dear Judge and Jury, I have always liked you. Every single one. <3 Samantha" <-- This is really true too. I really do like all the professors on my review board.
I placed the note on top of the 4 printed copies of my comprehensive exams and contemplated handing it in that way. In the end, I decided one of my professors might fail to see the hilariousness in my little note - so I decided to hand in the exam without the note... but I took a picture to forever commemorate the moment.
