day one; question one (two more days to go)  
ok, that SUCKED.

also? my answer SUCKED.

i realized on the way home that i totally got off topic, i'm pretty sure i summarized the books as opposed to analyzing them, i'm also pretty sure my argument was SHIT. and didn't really answer the question and OH MY GODS THAT SUCKED.

I have to go do it again on wed and then again on friday. *cries*

i need someone else to walk the dog because my brain hurts so much i just want to lie down and cover myself in a blanket and pretend the rest of the world isn't there.... or conversly punch something.

::comforts you::

Maybe it didn't go as badly as you think. Often when I thought I did really badly on an exam, it turned out I didn't do so bad at all. Also, you have now experienced the exam and can prepare yourself not to do again, what you think you did wrong.

Wish I could walk your dog for you. ;-(

thanks lady! yeah, I have no idea at this point, but since this is something all people who i have talked to who do these kinds of tests feel when they're done, it's a pretty normal reaction.

but yes, now that i know how fast the time goes i'll be more ready for wed and fri (though don't be surprised if there are very similar posts then!)

and thanks most of all for the moral support!! *hugs*

(luckily the dog and i took a very slow stroll, so it wasn't too bady)

Is that your doggie? Oh, now I really want to walk the dog. ;-)

I've got enough hugs for almost every situation, so don't worry about that, just post away. And rememer you'll learn something from Wed's exam that you'll be able to take to Friday's. Hang in there, you're a third of the way to the finish line.

that is her! she is a total cutie, and very good on walks.

and you're right, and i will attempt to keep that in mind for friday (when i get there - i'm so glad it's not friday yet! lolaz)

I wish I could hug you like vodka hugs the brain. Hang in there, kitty.

thanks bb.

Wow that is a lot of exams to squeeze into a week.

But here's the thing, you always think you did worse than you did. Also doesn't matter how you answered, 'cause it's over now, think ahead to the next lot. (Ooy, actually that might be considered depressing, but let's think ahead to the next lot with a positive this-is-so-I-can-showcase-what-I-know attitude rather than omg-so-many-exams attitude that I appear to have taken at the start of this comment...)

Also when you survive the week, can I suggest a bottle of Prosecco? Mm, bubbley deliciousness! Or other such treaty treat? :)

Sounds like you took one of those Kobayashi Maru's--the tests designed to instill fear and humility in uppity graduate students who think they know everything!

So do what Jim Kirk did: Struggle, fail, and then laugh in the face of fear and rock the shiznit out of your next two exams!

Just remember how AWESOME you are at fandom, at friendships, and being a lovely person, and go kick some ass!

May the Force be with you!

(What? Kirk and Yoda are totally in agreement on this!)
