yay

I think I may have passed both of my PhD qualifying exams today! Although I'm about to drop dead from exhaustion--two 3 hour exams with an hour break in between, and I worked up till the last second on both of them.

I'm going to go home and take a hot bath and go to bed.

I never count my chickens till they hatch, but if I did indeed pass these then I'm off to a great head start--you have 3 years to pass them, the first year is usually just to give you an idea of what you'll be up against later on. Now... sleep...

Update: okay, it's morning. You have no idea how tired I was last night; I decided to skip my 4th qual this morning which is going on right now--since I've already passed 2 of them (I think) and this is one I have no chance at anyway. I bombed one of them on Monday, so so far I'm 2/3. I still have one more I'm taking in a few hours. There's a slim chance i might do well on that one, but probably not.

A few hours after the last qual today there is a post-quals party at this guy's house; and in the intervening time there is a pre-post-quals-party-party at another guy's house (yes, that's what the invitation said). So naturally, I'll be at both of them getting plastered and meeting my future (classmates? friends? lovers? who knows?) Anyway, looking forward to it. Good times. [Oh yeah... the entertainment newspaper here is called "Good Times"--the equivalent of "Creative Loafing" for you Atlanta folks]
