I passed and so did my nine classmates! Our proclamation was a truly intimate and pleasant one. All our teachers, except for one, were present. In addition to our official certificate, we received a rose and a collage of pictures from our group assignments as a reminder of our journey and each other. We chatted about life’s pleasures and struggles, until it was time to say goodbye. I will genuinely miss some of them. The absence of the course will hit me hard, as my temporary job ends at the same time. I will hold on to and cherish my memories.
I never thought I’d live to see the day: finals are over and done with. The course is completed, that is if I passed all my finals. These last weeks were intense. I went to work by day, attended classes afterwards and had to study and prepare in between of social commitments and sleep. Result: I am exhausted.
Hurray, the group assignment went great! Our teacher was enthusiastic, but then again she gets excited easily. Even though we only had five participants
- excluding two teachers and the four of us - the one and a half hour of our activity flew by. We had an open and sincere conversation about first names and identity.
I did get nervous and trembled a lot when it was my turn to speak, but nevertheless I enjoyed the evening. Both the content and sight of our book table was appealing. We pimped it with some fun and subject-related games. Our grade for the group assignment will be added up with those of our individual role-play and theoretical exam. The former went moderately okay, the latter was less successful. Could it be that passing this subject is within reach?
My last exam was a really tough one. I saw more than one defeated face among my classmates afterwards. I did not do well either. I most certainly blundered and messed about. It is hard to estimate my chances. Crossing my fingers.
Next Thursday our results will be revealed. I’m awaiting the outcome of two earlier subjects as well. If all turns out positively, we get our certificate at the same time. If not, we will have to repeat those subjects. Re-examinations are not an option. I have yet another tiring week ahead of me, so time to worry will be limited. Though I’m really not looking forward to failing. Stay tuned for news!
