Very quick

One down, one to go. The translation test was fine; I toyed with the idea of choosing to translate the one Greek passage, but quickly rejected it and went with my strength, Latin. I think I did fine.

I want to talk a bit more about knitting Rogue and what I learned or would change if I did it again, but I don’t have time right now - I have to go study for tomorrow’s commentary exam. I also haven’t started a new project - that too will have to wait until at least tomorrow afternoon.

Thank you to everyone who left a kind comment about the sweater or wished me good luck on my exams - every bit of encouragement is much appreciated!

Good luck on the commentary exam!

Once that’s done, will you have any others?

Well, if my committee deems me to have passed, or pretty close to it, there will be an oral examination in a week or two, with the whole committee. I’ll have been given my written exams back, and I get to go in and apologise for all the errors I’ve realised I’ve made, and then they grill me about my field in general and where I’m going with my dissertation. If that goes well, there are no more exams until my dissertation defence. But boy, there do seem to be a lot of hoops to jump through!
