I got a confirmation email from the Dean.
My finals are in his hands now.
It will take at least a month to clean up the clutter around my desk that had accumulated in the research phase of my essays. While I am at it I may as well clean the entire room, under the beds and the closet and, well everything. That will keep me so distracted that I won't have time to think about what is going on with the essays.
And in the end I will get my grades and have a clean bedroom.
This could be really great, either way I will have a clean bedroom.
