PhD Exams, 1 Down, 2 to Go

I’m extremely relieved to have gotten the major exam on 20th century American literature out of the way. Though, it’s kind of painful to type this right now so I’m going to be brief. I nearly used the full five hours with a short break for lunch when Yufang dropped off some coffee. I got to a point where I didn’t want to look at it any more, and I wasn’t sure if I could type more anyways. I’m proud of my answers, but I feel undone and frayed by the work. At least I have a day to recuperate before the postmodern theory exam on Thursday.
