'Twas the last Latin class of Springtime...

Technically, there's still tutorial tomorrow, but the last normal Latin class of the schoolyear met today. We're doing fairly well as a group and the instructor has high hopes for lots of us passing the exam next week. He's delightfully optimistic. I do think a fair many people in our class have a good shot at passing it, but I don't think I'm among them. Don't think I'm being pessimistic. I'm feeling happily relaxed about the exam because I'm quite certain that I'm not yet ready to pass this exam, much as it would be handy to have it out of the way.

(The title of this post is not a reference to 'Twas the Night before Christmas. Try again.)
