Comprehensive Exam....*drum roll*

I have in my hot little hands the one question that constitutes my Masters exam. I have one week to write a 15-20 page response. It's tailored to my thesis topic (graphic narrative and the oral tradition [shuddup Todd]) and will lead to my proposal and help me lay out the chapters of my thesis.

Nothing terribly surprising here. I can do it! But if I'm noticeably absent for a few days it's because I'm tied to my computer. Speaking of computers, mine has been a bitch, but it's now fixed--just in time!

Wish me luck. I wanna rock this thing so it makes my life easier down the road. Although I always put out the "I might be scarce" disclaimer, it's highly likely that I'll be posting and bitching. Ya never never can tell which way it'll go.

  1. Yikes!! Good luck hon. 15-20 pages sounds like a bitch. But I'm sure it will be a breeze for you.

    You know, graphic and oral shouldn't be used in the same sentence with some of these guys around ;)

  2. Good luck with your paper. Don't worry about being absent; we all understand! Kick some ass and take names!

    And yes, you shouldn't use oral and graphic in the same sentence when you're dealing with a mind as base as mine. But then I wouldn't be me if I didn't think that way!

  3. Do good, dear! I had a choice of 5 out of 12 questions, all expecting a minimum of 5 HANDWRITTEN pages, and only 6 hours total to do them in one day. Needless to say, I drank heavily that night...

  6. Thanks, Heather! And 15-20 is a bitch for everyone--me included! Not looking forward to it, but sort of excited at the same time.

    And you're absolutely right. The graphic/oral combo is asking for trouble.

    Cincy, thanks!! Gutter head. I'm right there with ya. :)

    Os, holy crap. I would've had to mainline some tequila or something to recover from that. Scary shit!

    Nancy, I'm never too far away! See, I'm commenting while I give my brain and shoulders a rest.

    Polly, thanks so much! I've already had a huge cup of coffee and several Cokes today. I should just switch to Excedrin and save the tummy room.

    Thank ya, LE!

  7. Good luck on your comps. Your orals too, for that matter.

    But I know you'll do well. It's your subject area.

  8. Thanks, X! I feel pretty good about it. A little pressure--even if it's in my head--is always a good motivator, though. :D

  9. I'm ignoring your command that I shut up by stating the following: Can I be your 'oral traditions' lab partner?
