So today the result is finally out. Annual Exams of 2008, final year.. A year full of.. toil and diligence ?
I think not.
For me, it was more a year full of trials and tribulations. Indeed, I remember wondering during the final exams of 2007, that how am I going to get ANY work done NEXT year? When there is going to be no SIS THE PRISS around to do the work??
That was my main worry :P.. (sorry sis.. its not like you're only useful for house work, you're loveable anyway...), but that was one major problem i had been dreading. And that is exactly what happened. Since July 2008, I hardly got time for books. Gone were the days when I could easily sit for a few hours lazily reading a textbook (they have pretty interesting facts in those little boxes).. and could hardly keep up with the assignments, tests... sessionals..what NOT.
What with the project and the khwari associated with it, the report writing, and the khwari associated with it, the handling of housework all on my own, and juggling parhai and taraweeh in Ramadan... it was a wonder if I could have two straight hours of study...
THUS.. I wasn't expecting a very good result...I don't care about positions, but wished (rather dreamed about a nice percentage)... and was sure I wouldn't be able to get it. This time. Didn't stop me from prayers waisay..:S
Khair :D:D:D.. so today .. when I found out that my percentage is 92.9.. I was like ..flabbergasted at first.. It was totally unexpected! What with the silly papers, my silly attempts, even sillier tukkas (guesswork), frantic last minute studying, worrying about not studying, other idiotic details that hindered my work.... It was just...
And that's what makes me happy when I look at the indeed, truncated rational number 92.93333333333 :). That this number could come into being when my parhai had gone so hopeless...! When I had been feeling that this time, the percentage curve would go down! And this time, I will surely disappoint my people. That reminds me..
The reaction of my folks was typical :P.. Dad was elated ! Mum was smiling, but said nothing MUCH. Sis was ecstatic, and Chotpo was like "But 7th position?? That's too faaarr dooowwnnn" ..:S.. That stung. But only briefly :).. I know I do not FUNCTION like the position holders.. You have to be on another planet to function like that :S.. Plus.. being 7th is no way an indication that Im the 7th most intelligent person in class. No possible way *deep sigh*.. How I wish that were true waisay.
Anyway :D.. so today was a nice day Alhamdulillah! My silver lining..
At least SOMETHING worked out nicely!
