Today I had an exam. Hooray. Not because I've had an exam, but because I'm done with the damn thing. Although I guess it was more of a midterm kinda thing. They’re going to use the curriculum from the midterm in the final exam, because, apparently, they don’t trust us to remember the stuff until then (I know I won’t), and feel the need to test us again. Of course, I’ll forget all of it once I’ve finished the final exam, anyway. This way, I’ll just have more stuff to forget. That’s my master plan.
As usual when I have an exam, I tried to go into exam hibernation the week before. That’s when I fill the fridge and cupboards, stick my nose in my books and don’t come out unless I absolutely have to. Reasons for leaving the house during my hibernation period are: Fire and… No, that’s pretty much it.
This time I was constantly interrupted, though, by everything from the dog to the Jehovah’s witnesses. I pretended not to be home, and they stuck flyers about false religions and the terrible things that’ll happen to them. Also, the dog couldn’t fathom why I’d rather sit there and stare at a pile of papers, when I could be doing something meaningful, such as, say, scratch her ass.
In the end, I gambled that they’d probably ask us about either Plato or Aristotle. If they didn’t, it would be the first time in that college’s history. And today I got to write a long paper on Plato’s ideal state. Hurray for that, as well.
I’m not actually sure wether it’s hurray or hooray, so I decided to use both. Clever, eh?
