Or if I wanted to water down the reality, I’d label it “Day 1 of Final Exam Week.”
Since midterms, I’ve focused my one-on-one study on learning vocabulary specific to and how to speak formerly about the China-Africa relationship. I’ve already turned in my 2, 500 character essay on the significance of the relationship.
(Again, thank YOU Eddie Murphy for getting me through that!) Every single time, I watch Delirious… I spend some minutes just laughing at what the man is wearing! HAHA!!! As I said Monday night when it was 11 PM and I was still writing: “We all know what we need individually to survive in times of struggle. I need Eddie Murphy.” *NEEDED* him badly!
Tonight, I give a verbal report, in Mandarin, before the firing squad – I mean…a panel of teachers – for my final exam.
I *do* feel less nervous than I was during midterms when I had to do it on the China-U.S. relationship.
Even so, the struggle will be real.
Tomorrow, I have my Chinese newspaper and Chinese Conversation class final exams! On Friday, I have my one-on-two final exam!
And on top of the other things that I must get done before Friday?
The word of the week is:
Gave my report, reviewed it flawlessly with my teacher beforehand…Then three minutes into a smooth report, the director of the program walks in like…随便！
