To be honest, I’ve been tense and stressed the past three weeks. It wasn’t because of the work load. Work load just makes me tired. No, my angst has pretty much stemmed from waiting for exam results. You know, the kind of exam results that can make or break a graduate career*. The previous year, more than half of the students taking this exam failed it. So understandably, I’ve been worried.
Well, today my advisor informed me I did favorably on the exam. Actually, he heaped a lot of praises about my unofficial score, but they all went through one ear and out the other. I guess I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop. If it ever does.
*Yes, it was the qualifying exam.
