Final Exams = Done!

The Hebrew exam went well. The translation wasn't terribly difficult, though there were a few things I didn't get. There were parts where I just guessed what a word might mean in the context of the phrase. Parsing verbs and writing out the paradigm charts was a piece of cake.

AND there was extra credit, of which I got 5.5 points. It was hilarious. Dr. Hutton (who's only about 5 years older than I am), translated four song titles into Hebrew. We got one point for translating the title properly and another .5 for naming the correct artist. I got "Oops, I Did It Again," by Britney Spears, "Walk This Way," by Aerosmith, "A Boy Named Sue," by Johnny Cash, but I didn't learn until lunch that "You Give Love A Bad Name" was done by Bon Jovi. Ah, well, such is life. Honestly, I don't feel bad for not knowing Bon Jovi's catalogue.

As a reward to myself for successfully completing two finals and two papers, I did just about nothing for the rest of the day. Knitting, reading a book, napping, watching football (stupid Eagles lost!), and eating Wegman's Chinese food (with free money that I got for referring Jordan to Wachovia!). It was a good day.

Maybe over the next couple of weeks, I will be able to write a few more substantial thoughtdul posts since I won't have exams and papers to think about. Stay tuned!
