Now It Can Be Told

Now it can be told -- Comps results are in!

I passed four out of the five exams. I passed Ethnographic Essays, Single Sheets, ConFounds, and Modal Analysis. Yay, go me! I failed the 19th/20th Century History exam, but that's not such a big deal. In fact, of the five exams, it's the best one to have failed, for the following reasons:

1) I get to take it over next fall, which means that
2) I now have a whole year to study for it,
3) without the distraction of studying for the other four tests at the same time.
4) I know what I did wrong, and the extra year will help me correct that.
5) It's not embarrassing to fail it, like Ethno Essays (your subject test) and Single Sheets, but
6) It's not scary to retake it, like ConFounds, which I passed by dumb luck, or Modal Analysis, where I wouldn't get the gimp test second time around.

All in all, I think I did fairly well. Two of the other ethnoids also have to retake the history exam, so I'm in good company. Not bad. Not bad at all.
