Note to Self

Dear Self,

I'd like you to remember these moments leading up to the comprehensive exam. Remember how much you longed to be studying without the pressure of immanent forced performance of synthesized ideas and knowledge. Remember how unpleasant you find it to rush and cram in hopes of reviewing something that might be of immediate service rather than long term usefulness. Remember how much you wish you could be studying these things at your leisure. That you could take your time on ideas and think through and organize your notes and thoughts. Please take advantage of all that leisure time you'll have post exams when leisurely studying will no doubt look less appealing--remember to enjoy that time to read and think and write unmolested by immediate evaluation.
