It's nearly time to relax!!
It’s the night before the penultimate exam (droit international privé) and although having had a meagre 5 hours sleep last night and having been revising all day I am still surprisingly awake – which is great as I have an awful lot to get through before tomorrow… I think it’s going to be a late night! Meghan came round at around 2 pm and we got a good 7 or 8 hours work in which is great, but the subject is really abstract and subtle and takes a lot of getting your head around unlike some of the more practical courses.
It’s been a fairly stressful couple of weeks of course, but in a lot of ways, I have enjoyed this month more than any of them. For one, with the hours of work we have been putting in, I really feel like I have consolidated my knowledge; and the intense revision has also gone a long way to improving my French, especially my spelling and grammar. We have, however, no idea as yet, how we are getting on with the course or the exams as no grades or feedback have yet been released, so we are just all hoping for the best and hopefully things will come together.
For my exam droit de l’entreprise last Tuesday, I turned up feeling really poorly, and I've been quite ill lately and in and out of the medical centre, although based on my previous record, the likelihood is I that did better in that exam than in others when I was feeling Ok! Past experience of taking exams in the UK whilst feeling under the weather tells me this, but this is France, and so anything could happen!
Tomorrow after the exam, I have a pedicure and manicure booked (and oh my gosh it is so needed!) and then the final piece of work for competition law will be done before I can wake up on Thursday morning with the exam part of the course behind me! WE CAN DO IT GIRLS!!! (and boys!).
I fly back to the UK on Friday to see Adam and the gang for a couple of days and it’s going to be amazing!! I’m starting to get really exciting about seeing everyone, there are some people I haven't seen since August last year! I think a couple of glasses of fizz and some nice food will be in order in Paris too beforehand or when I return, to celebrate our hard work - and then an hour of gym suédoise to work off all the calories afterwards!
Four days to go!
More updates soon.
