It is finished. My papers are turned in. The finals are graded. Semester grades have been tallied. I am currently getting ready for the lovely (and long) 8 hour drive to my grandparents, thrilled beyond belief that it is raining and cold all the way there. Such perfect driving weather. But it is my vacation, and I am going to enjoy it. I won't be updating for a week though, so don't miss me too much.
So, the absolute winner for the dumbest things written on the final exams:
Tolstoy and Gogol were "realist" because they were able to accurately describe the negative aspects of Soviet society.
closely followed by:

And no, I'm not going to explain why these are hilarious. If you want to know, you can look it up. That is your assignment for the next week.
