So you know how cars sit at stoplights with their all their blinkers flashing at different times and then for one moment they’re all flashing at the same time?
That’s how exams are here. Most of the time they’re all in different weeks so that you have one or two exams to take every two weeks or so. But then there is this one week that just happens to fulfill the scheduling for every exam and you get three exams in three days.(except this is where the analogy breaks down. Blinkers at the same time = awesome. Exams in the same week = not).
Now I have my own theories on why this is, moon alignment, dark matter, spectro-cosmic impalation. (I made that last one up), but it mostly just boils down to you getting hosed by the end of the week. What’s being hosed? Well there’s this saying, “Getting an education from MIT is like drinking from a firehose” which is occasionally a pretty accurate description. During these moments of accuracy, one is said to be “hosed” from working so hard.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some Super Metroid to finish.
