Well, I'm in my last week as a student of Virginia Commonwealth University: this is Final's Week (Now, imagine me screaming that emphatically while kicking a man down a conveniently placed giant hole in my court-yard). I'm full of a mix of a thousand different emotions right now: excited to be so close to the end, stressed about these last few days, proud of what I've accomplished, nostalgic over all the happy memories, nervous about the future, sad to have to leave, etc., etc., etc.

Most importantly, though, I'm focused on these next 4 days, as I'm sure you can tell from my title & sig. The paper due tonight & the final on Thursday are both for my Philosophy of Law class, whereas tomorrow's paper is in my Semantics of Natural Language senior seminar course. These are without a doubt my two most difficult courses with the two professors who grade the hardest. I'm confident that I can do well, but I'm also feeling a little intimidated and overwhelmed by the sheer importance of each of these last three puzzle pieces. If I fudge up badly on any of these, it could really hurt my final grades & therefore my GPA.

I guess what I'm asking is just that y'all remember me (and Danelle & Derek & all the other college kids) right now as the end draws near. I know I would realyl appreciate any thought, prayers, advice, cookies, well-written 8 page philosophy papers, etc. that you could send my way. Also, don't be shocked if I disappear until after Thursday.

Then again, don't be surprised if I'm on here all the time during my breaks!:laugh:

Almost same boat as me, just two exams for me to do on the 11th and 12th so spending all day down the library revising.

Today was 11am to 7pm, im now off for another late session! See if you can match that punk! :wink:

Got the same emotions as yourself about finishing, what it over so badly but want to do myself justice but will also be sad that it will soon be the end.

Good luck and the best advice comes from my teacher when i took my first propers exams that matter at 16.

Its simple but so true

You get out exactly what you put in

So put in the hours and Good Luck my friend!

Ha ha when you are studying History it truly is a pleasure, i have sat in a library all day today reading and the smell of the books filled with knowledge makes me feel alive!

ha ha i am terribly nostalgic over anything so i could hate the place then lament it as the greastest thing in the world when i leave it!

Best of luck Ben with your finals (Derek too)! :) I'm feeling the strain and craziness right now as well. And congrats on surviving college too. You deserve to party hard in Vegas.

You're definitely in my thoughts and prayers too, I know all too well the effectiveness during a bomb burner of a test. :laugh:

Apparently enough people have complained to my Philosophy of Law professor about their busy schedules that he's pushed back the due date for his paper from tonight to tomorrow night.

It's getting down to the nitty-gritty now. 150min to go & I'm trying to draw all my notes together into a single cohesive outline. I'm not sure if he'll let us use notes, but even if he doesn't, the act of re-organizing & re-writing will help me retain this info better.

I'M DONE!!!!! It was a list of 9 essays & we had to pick 3. He gave us 2hrs to do it. I crushed the first two & was dominating the 3rd when time was called. I didn't get to finish it, but I had my thought process done clearly, so he'll be able to see what I wanted to say & how I was planning to prove it. I feel so blessed, I could feel God calming me & giving me the words to say.

I'M DONE!!!!!!
