Sunday, August 5 2001

This is the last of the photos I took the other day.



Tomorrow is the big day – the first big day, that is. Between 8 am and 1 pm (GMT +2) I will be sitting in the auditorium maximum, where the exam about pedagogy is taking place.

The strange thing is – I’m not nervous, and I don’t know why. For months, I’ve been thinking that I would be a nervous wreck by this time, but no. We’ll see how it goes tomorrow.

Anyway, I consider the pedagogy exam to be a warming-up of sorts. The next exam is didactics of physics on Friday, which should not be too bad either.

However, the next exam is Algebra on the Monday after that, and I’m afraid of that one, I can tell you. I just don’t like Galois theory much.

If I survive that one, there will be two more physics exams which I should be able to manage okay, and on August 24, it’s all over. Then I’ll take a little time to relax before preparing for the oral exams.


Although you probably didn’t notice it because I’m not updating my weblog regularly, I’ve been following all your blogs…

Craig, I know I’m a couple of days late, but still: Sorry to hear about your grandmother. She seems to have been a lovely person.

Finally, good news from Mollie!

Hal came, saw and defended. Congratulations! Sounds like you did an excellent presentation, Hal, which I would have liked to attend.

Enjoy your vacation, Frauke, Scott and Christopher!
