That essay.
I finished the examination seminar like I would have my second breakfast.

I passed. I survived. It's over.

 It would seem that I will be drinking a bottle of fine champagne this weekend. I've been waiting for so long and now I'm done. Done, I tell you.

My job according to Bernard and Manny

I sell wine and other alcoholic beverages for a living and therefore must develop certain bullshitting skills in order to convince customers to choose wines I find would suit their specifications. Sometimes it sounds like I'm an all-knowing expert and at other times it just sounds... a bit like this:

I don't really see the problem. You just have to choose your audience with care.

Past deadline

I've handed in my essay. It's not great. But it's in. I can't do anything but prepare to defend it. In a few days we'll find out if I can pop that bottle of champagne or if I'll have to wait a little while longer.

Writing an essay with only two days until deadline. This is EXACTLY what it feels like.

No Oscars for you

How hard can it be to give Leonardo DiCaprio an Oscar?
I didn't see the award show because as soon as I thought I'd found a good live stream it was only for the red carpet. For the actual show... nothing that worked where I live. Not for lack of trying to find something because I was up until 3AM. Which is why I'm now both tired and bitter.
