so how did it go? pretty well considering before the oral defense i was fairly convinced i was gonna flunk this course. now i'm setting up a meeting with my professor right before we leave for tahoe this afternoon coz now i'm fairly sure that i passed. i mean, when your two examinees look at each other perplexed and one asks the other, 'you wanna keep doing this and find some question she can't answer or do you wanna just call it quits?!' then i think that's a good sign. plus again i think it helped that i was the last one and after testing 26 students for at least an hour each over the past four days they just wanted to get the hell out of there probably more than i did.
i have to admit now i feel stupid coz i was such a wreck--drinking beer before my test to try to calm my nerves and all. everybody had to watch me crash and burn but then revert back to my bouncy, giddy self when i got out of my exam room. bah. it's over now. that's all i ever wanted.
