Almost Over!

YAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYyy~!

My semester's almost over. Had a research paper and two exams last week, turned in my last major assignment and had my last exam today. A couple more weeks of class, then final exams, then a month vacation for my poor brain. I CAN'T FUCKING WAIT!


So, I'm curious, how's the uni calendar set up over there? We start late August, break mid-Dec for 3 or 4 weeks, and finish early May.

    At my uni we start Semester A at the end of September. It lasts for 12 weeks (til the middle of December) then finish for christmas:D . Have exams in January then start back in February for Semester B which lasts til May. Then do the whole exam thing again :eek2:

    But thats just my uni - they're all different in Scotland

    Exams after winter break? Yikes, I don't think I could do that. We have exams before break, and since there are completely new classes in January, my mind is completely free of academic shiznit.

    Yeah, exams after christmas are a bit rubbish. Means you always have them at the back of your mind even when you're trying to celebrate christmas and New Year. :crazyeyes

    I'm kinda used to it tho cause it was the same even when I was at school.

    And I know I'll miss it this time next year when I'm stuck in a crappy job!

    woohoo - I have only one essay left to write before I go home from Oxford for Christmas.... and it's on Alice in Wonderland - bargainous!

    (I reckon it's cos our tutor wanted to read a nice girly book so she [and we] didn't have to wade through any more depressing Victorian Poetry)

    Good grief - seven weeks have gone so fast, I can't believe it's nearly eighth (and last)

    Going to have to think about planning Christmas shopping now!
