Decisive Victory

I’m going to write using a sport analogy – of a sport I know nothing about. Surely nothing can go wrong, right?

(For the record, I’m not averse to baseball. I just don’t speak it. As far as I know it isn’t a major sport in New Zealand; that would be rugby, and also cricket, but you shouldn’t take my word for it because sports + Sarah = running for books. Books that are not sports books)

Anyway, my real-life decisive victory whatsit would be the final exam. You know the one: you’ve taken your last three exams, you have two grades and you’re waiting on the third to tell you you’ve passed and tipped over into I Have A Degree now. So… I guess it’d be the taking of the exam, preparing for it and eating your brain foods and buying a pack of Rescue Remedy stuff that doesn’t work, and then you go in and take the exam. There’s the last-minute cram session, the pre-exam chatter about this and that…

Seriously, you guys, finding out you’ve got your degree after three fun exams? That is actually my favourite thing.

I think I’ve probably ruined this metaphor enough so I’ll end here.

  1. Actually I think it’s a great analogy. It made me think about when my daughter took her last exams before she got her BS. She was so nervous about it, I think she wasn’t really happy until they sent her the confirmation in August that she was really graduated. But that’s another story.

    It wasn’t a bad take on the metaphor, only would be interesting, wouldn’t it, if you acing the exam would cause the three others up for it to get an A at the same time? You’d be a real hero. ^_^
