As we turn in our last term papers, come out of the examination halls with great smiles ready to run away from the university for the next month, I clean my room, pack my stuff and look forward to very merry, happy holidays. Although the past two exam weeks were awfully long, they were not something I dreaded or would feel bad about. Life is good. It's just a matter of how you look at it. As I go to enjoy this break, I take some memories with me that would never fail to bring a smile on my face:
*Random quotes and incidents during (around about) final exams week. Nov-Dec, 2007*
