Not yet. Two years from now I will graduate from this college, and probably start searching for another one for an IT degree or something.

An hour and a half oral examination
Please don't tell me that KY_Lube was the lecturer?

Anyhow all jokes aside, congratulations, relax and take a well earned breather. :)

Mostly a lot of the classics: Plato, Beowulf, Galileo, Locke, Chaucer, Nietzsche, etc. We've read exerpts from lots of people. The next two years we will be looking a a fewer number of them much more in depth.

Ah, right.

By 'reading', I meant 'studying'.. It may just be an English term though :P

By the looks of it, some kind of Literature degree? Anyway, congrats on completing your most difficult final ;)

And lucky bugger... Your summer starts 1.5 weeks before mine :evil: :mad: :D

Liberal arts degree, technically. But we read lots and lots of literature during it.

Ah, ok.

What job are you thinking of taking up after this? (Or what would you be if you didn't take an IT degree after this? :P)
