The end of March wrapped up the last of the taught courses from the MRes portion of my EngD and I hastily jetted off for my 2 week Easter Holidays. Tokyo and Sydney were great, thanks. Incredibly expensive though…
Since my return, my time has been devoted to the joys of exam season. I can clearly remember at least 4 instances of my life in which I have exclaimed “YES LAST EXAM OF MY LIFE 4 EVA”. Now I realise it is an extremely short-sighted and naive comment.

One day there will be rooms filled with internet-disabled computers and students can type out their exam papers. Or there will be a brain scanner which can tell if you have revised/understood the course content without even having to write anything. That’d be handy.
I think I must have been going revision mad as I made this and found it hilarious…
