I was going to skip today until I talked to CK and we started talking about school and I remembered some of the pressure I experienced in College. Many of my professors allowed us to take an oral exam after the first written exam if the latter resulted in an "A". So, whenever I had that opportunity I took advantage of it since I thought it would be much more relaxed and easier to explain my positon without rambling on in a "blue book".

What I did not realize at first was how my body would react to a one on one with at PHD in European History. It reacted with the shits, uncontrollable long lasting tie your stomach in knots burn your ass shits. This after working all night since I tended to schedule my exams as early as I could since I worked midnights. I ususally felt fine until about 15 minutes before the exam was scheduled to begin. Then I felt like my last 5 meals had been at Taco Bell and I was running for the border.

So, I learned to plan for these episodes whenever I scheduled an oral exam. After a while, I finally got comfortable enough that these episodes stopped, but that took about a year. Any one else out there have any thing like this to share?
