I took the first of my two comprehensive exams today and didn't totally bomb it, so there is hope, which means I have some studying to do before Wednesday's exam. I'm mostly just glad it's over. The first time wasn't as much of a relief, because there was still a very likely possibility I'd have to take it again. Now, pass or fail, I'm done trying to interpret this one professor's stupidly dense way of asking exam questions FOREVER!

And although we're officially pretending my birthday's on Thursday, this hasn't been the worst birthday ever. I woke up feeling so confused, because I LOVE birthdays and hate comprehensive exams and I just didn't know how to feel.
