Oxen Trials

The 1st semester is over and now exams are on the way. I have two coming up on Monday (26th Jan) and Tuesday (27th Jan), which isn't too far away! Following that I have two more on the 9th and 11th February.

While the tensions and stress are there for this necessary exercise of an academic process, I am somewhat philosophical and less pressured by it all, say, compared with my previous experiences with this necessary evil at the last semester. What I am looking forward and beyond all this, is the inevitable completion of my 2-year course here in Rome and the relishing of leaving this place for the sunny island state that is Singapore.

So, for those of you who are celebrating with some measure of gusto and revelry, the Chinese New Year festivities, and the holidays that come with it, remember those who have to bear the strains of studies and exams during this period, in a place where such celebration is non-existent or is muted.

Happy Chinese New Year to those that matter! :-D

On a more serious note, why don't you post your exam timings on your blog so that we can also share in your pain (in spirit) in the midst of our merry making and binging? :P
