School: End of Exam Rituals
Another semester, another set of law school exams completed. There's an extreme, almost palpable sense of relief when that final test is turned in - you definitely feel like celebrating. One ritual I started when I became old enough is going out for a drink with the guys. It's probably a bad habit, but a cold draught Guinness or two once in awhile really hits the spot.
There are other rituals, too. I like to save shaving and nail-clipping until the tests are over - a bit of superstition, that. Cleaning up the place, a priority that understandably falls by the wayside during the studying period, also takes center stage.
