Comps, comps, ooh la la!
We had our first study session for comps today (like the ultimate final exam, the little test you need to pass to get your MA). Only 6 short weeks (or so) to study! One of the additional stressors this semester, and not a tiny one. Luckily, today made me feel a lot better about the topic we were going over, though I think that is my strongest area anyway. It's kind of funny to look back over what I've learned in the past year and a half or so and realize how far I've come. I thought I knew and understood linguistics when I came, the product of the vast experience I had gained getting my minor in linguistics from 3 classes, but I know realize I had only the shallowest and narrowest understanding of the field. Even now, there's so much I don't understand, or even know about, but I know a lot more, and even better, I realize how much I really don't know.
