I’m standing in my hotel room, pacing around while I practice my defense talk. The currently length is 18:36, which is just under the maximum 20 minutes. I hope, if I have any neighbors in the next room over, that they’ve brought earplugs.
Frankly, I’m pretty nervous about the exam. I have no idea how it will go. What I know, I know well. What I don’t know, I know that I don’t know at all. I just hope my examination committee can accept where those limits are.
Anyhow, 12:30pm is about 14 hours from now. I plan to spend at least 6 of those hours sleeping, an hour traveling to campus, and a few minutes, at least, picking up sandwiches.
Considering that it is currently 7am in Denmark, and I still haven’t adjusted to Vancouver time, I’m amazed that I have any functioning brain cells left at all.
On that note, I’m going to run through it again. On your mark, get set, go….
