L'etat, c'est moi.

This is simultaneously scary and satisfying.

I have arrived in the conference room wherein the entrepreneurship club's weekly meetings are held, and I have arrived ahead of the entirety of the group. This is due to having some sudden free time on my hands as a result of completing an 85-minute statistics exam in 23 minutes. The fact that I found it so easy is a bit frightening to me...whenever I'm the first one done, and whenever I didn't have even the slightest bit of difficulty in the execution I wonder "did I screw up? Shouldn't there be more here?"

Rather than causing arrogance, the ease with which I can complete seemingly complicated tasks leads to overpowering horror. I'll be on pins and needles for the better part of a week until those exams come back graded because until I see that "yes, it was that easy", I'm going to be convinced that I've royally screwed it up. At least when I had a very time-consuming homework assignment, at the end of the time I felt like my performance was rock-solid and indeed I scored 97.5% (39/40) on it. I just hope that the homework success translates to quiz success.

On the bright side, I get to listen to Strauss while I wait for everyone else to show up for the 2:00 meeting ten minutes hence.
