Passed the Greek exam, just barely, but it is a pass and I’m happy.
I can’t concentrate right now after writing the first comprehensive exam for four hours and studying a little bit more afterward. I thought this first comprehensive exam went well, and while there were a few mistakes I made, I know I can defend the positions articulated and retract the one thing I said that I didn’t really want to say later – there are oral exams coming up.
Nothing much to add. Things are good, but I’m tired and really busy. I can’t wait to review all that has been done more fully, actually: in a sense, things are just beginning. It really is weird how this exercise, which seems almost like a formality, does help put everything one learned together.
