Final Exam Week Rant # 81

This is my 8th year in some college or the other and I am tired. This is simply too much college for a guy like me because I never liked courses, exams and the concept of studying itself. However, like a unforgiving masochist I have beaten myself to death with exams. I am like a semi-dead guy running the last mile of a marathon, I am coughing, limping and willing myself to the bloody finish line. I remember taking a stupid horrible OS Lab course (Xinu anyone?) as my last course in my previous grad school. That course seemed like somebody was giving me a rectal examination for eternity. I promised myself that I'd never go to school again. I guess I should note down and remember what I feel about school during exams. The xerox, phone call, last-minute book borrowing, syllabus book checking, method of studying that I did in B.E days hasn't exactly gone away. Its the same everywhere.

On the subject of micro-economics. Grr! writing a paper on Google from an economics perspective is like analysing Salma Hayek's body like a dermatologist. Not sexy - just painful. This is like my zillionth paper on Google. One more Google case, for that matter one more word, I hear about Wallmart, eBay, Microsoft or the long-tail I'll just go mad. I am telling you. I'll go mad.

And somehow I manage to get a cold or a cough during exams. I hate this. Hotwater + Disprin + gargle = Zindabad!

You're almost there bro. Keep it going.
I totally get it when you say abt hating schools/exams. I'm very much like you, the only difference being i didn't succumb to the temptation of going back to school :D

Bharath, the moment i saw "Lakshmana porumai vendum" it reminded me of Ramar sita and hanuman scene in the movie Sathya (Kamal Haasan's old tamil movie) :)

Good one!
