Chp 23. Exams again!!!!!

Aaaaarrgh. Today was horrible. Mid-term exams. “Competition & Strategy” paper.

First of all, none of us had any clue how to prepare for this exam. The question paper could be as arbit as… chiru posting a message on bracket Thankgod it was atleast an open book exam. Although an open book exam signifies the fact that there’s no point in taking any material inside the exam hall bcoz anything asked in the paper will not be there anywhere in the book, it does give us a small glimmer of hope!

8:30am exam started. It was a 4 freaking hours exam. We had just one case. One HUGE case. It was about “Coors breweries”. 22 pages long. With lots and lots of numbers. Just one question : “Write a comprehensive analysis of the case” This was really tough, but u know what was the toughest part? Staying awake! I got up to wash my face atleast three times. So did many others. Comon, 8:30 in the morning, after staying up till 5 in the morning (3 hours of sleep!), it was not exactly an interesting paper too. I somehow managed to apply Potter’s 5 Forces Model here and there and the rest is all blurry ... Atleast one good thing was, the case was about beer, my favourite topic

Would love to write more but I have another paper tomorrow. Macro economics. Lets see how a computer science engineer is going to fare in it Right now, everything I do, everywhere I look, the only thing that comes to my mind is
C + G + I + NX = Y = YD + (TA - TR) = C + S + (TA - TR)

With that I rest my keyboard for the day.

Goodnite.

yeah, makes sense..

Courses + Grades + I-bank jobs + NoXperience = Yoda = Yoda's Dick + Testicular(Arthritis + Rheumatism) = Coriander(dried) + Sulphuric Acid + Testicular(Arthritis + Rheumatism)

And we all know how yoda looks like.

Another important relation to be noted is: Yoda's Dick = Coriander(dried) + Sulphuric Acid

5:30am
Am sooo sleepy...

Good news: i've finished reading chapter 4
Bad news: I've forgetten everything i read in chapter 5

Nice to see many of my classmates still up. The only difference is, they are up studying so that they will stay in the top 5 of our class, whereas i'm studying so that i won't get below average in class, which now seems impossible to attain considering the amount of time left for the exam and the number of chapters i still gotta go thru...


aaaarrrggghhh....

6:30am soon...

was fighting with bees for past half an hour. have no freaking idea how they got into my room. I tried my best to chase them out, but eventually in the end i got no other option but to kill them both. They were buzzing forever around me, which was really really irritating, especially when ur sleepy and frustrated over the fact that nothing seems to be entering ur head.

6:50am

YAY! its no longer dark here in the city of bangalore. Dawn breaks. But sadly, my knowledge about macro-economics is still pretty dark... :-((

8:00am

Just had breakfast in our cafeteria. 1 hour left for my exam ... and the red mark on my forehead doesn't seem to be fading away. I got that mark while sleeping on top of my books somewhere between 6:50am and 7:30am.

Truly this was the most useless "night-out" i've ever had... i didn't gain anything at all which i can truly boast about.

11:30am

Came back from the exam hall. Disastrous. Don't know why i even spent the whole nite studying for it. It wouldn't have made much of a difference anyway.

aaaarrrrrggghhhhh

C + G + I + NX = Y = YD + (TA - TR) = C + S + (TA - TR) ???
Right! Bad thing to be poppin in your mind every now and then.
Nice thing I did not take Macro or whatever hell you seem to be studyin. :)
But you're right. Now that its over, its party time!!!

illusionaire said...

"whatever hell i seem to be studying"? lol... i love the way u phrased it Jimmy. seriously. i have no freaking idea what the hell am i studying out here. stuff like accountings and economics that i have never touched before... its like a robot being programmed. u just mug up whatever material is laid out before you. One day it is Organization Behaviour, the next day it is a debate between Marxism and Tagore's ideology! how arbit is that.
