Crunch Time

December 15, 2009

It is the end of the semester.  Finals are being taken by students everywhere.  Some will have prepared diligently for this final opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned through the last few months.  Others will frantically cram in the last few hours before a test that they knew was coming since the beginning of the semester.  Some will just show up and hope that somehow they will pass.   A few will not even bother to show up.

One way or another, it will all be over soon.  All that will remain is a grade on a transcript, varying amounts of accumulated knowledge, and the memories of the experience, that will have been good for some, but not for all.
