I finished!

I finished my *@!* final! I answered the last question around 10pm tonight. I did a brief proofreading. I am so sick of looking at that beast that part of me doesn't care one single bit if there are any typos or mistakes. Perhaps a night of sleep will help me look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow to check for any errors. I can't mail it until late in the afternoon anyway.
The point is I finished. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Now I feel like I can get on with my life. I can do the reading I am behind on, catch up on our budget, emails, phone calls. There is no way I could have finished it if I didn't have an extension. It took me 2 months to complete 72 essay questions and 88 vocabulary words. I don't think it would have taken quite as long if Jon hadn't been traveling so much during the summer and our vacation of course put the final on hold (sort of). I carried a mini-cassette recorder around so I could talk into the recorder and answer questions that way. If I had to guess at how many hours it took to work on that final--thinking and typing included I would guess 150ish.
Now I have to wait until they grade it and tell me whether or not I passed it. Unfortunately it can take up to 2 months or sometimes longer. Of course I am hoping it takes about 6 weeks. It ended up being 30 pages long. Longer than my InterVarsity staff application was!
Thank you Lord for giving me the perseverance to finish that final! Hallelujah!
